Transformation of Relationships: The Biblical Subversion of the Nature and Exercise of Power

by Manfred T. Brauch | July 31, 2011

Human relationships, as well as larger human communities, largely function on the basis of the exercise of power, by means of which persons are often limited, controlled, directed, excluded, used, and oppressed. We will look at various kinds of power which characterize ordinary human and specifically gender relationships. Against that background, this recording explores the way in which the Incarnation, and the life and teaching of Jesus, challenge human power relationships and empower a new kind of humanity where over-under power categories are transformed by the power of serving love.
