Poetry of Truth Part 3 - MP3


Price: $4.00
Item Number: 236-03m

The author of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, St. Luke, is traditionally known as a sophisticated non-Jew Hellenist and perhaps a physician. He was an early convert to the Christian faith, most likely through the preaching of St. Paul.  The stories in Luke's gospel are vivid and distinctive among the synoptic gospels. 

 In part three of the Poetry of Truth CD/MP3 series Gil Bailie, continuing an exploration of St. Luke’s rendition of the ‘Sermon on the Plain’ in chapter 6, introduces the ‘generative mimetic scapegoating mechanism’ (GMSM) referring to the socially generative effects of mob scorn/hatred. This term coined by Girardian scholar Robert Hamerton-Kelly has the advantage of a kind of shorthand expression for many aspects of the Gospel’s revelatory power elucidated by the work of René Girard.

Other themes explored in this part are Jesus’ command to love one’s enemies, the relationship between Jesus and John the Baptist, the parables of the blind leading the blind, the sower and the seed, the house built on rock/sand, and the story of the Gerasene demoniac.
