(p.163) An Irrelevant Conclusion
Jesus and the Chaos of History

James G. Crossley

Oxford University Press

After summarizing the previous chapters, the conclusion looks at the problems surrounding the language of ‘revolution’, ‘imperialism’, and ‘power’ and how the earliest Christianity survived by buying into such language. Alternative approaches to dominance and power today are suggested, including the importance of economically irrelevant Jesus scholarship, and scholarship more generally.
