Discussion: The Modern Jesus
Description of Assignment:
According to the textbook, Jesus lived between 4 B.C.E. and 29 C.E. However, imagine that Jesus did not live until the 21st Century, and instead of his message relating to the contexts of an earlier time period, consider how he presents his message to contemporary times.
Then, write a fictional biographical account of Jesus Christ in a contemporary setting. Be creative and hold true to the ideals represented in the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John).
Is his message accepted or denied? What are his views of the Churches, Synagogues, Mosques, and Temples around the globe? Is he controversial? Is he political? Does he offer any solutions to the current political and social problems? Is he married? While you do not need to answer any or some of these questions, be creative in how you create the modern message of Jesus.
