Synopsis


The figure of Jesus many people have today is perfectly unreal half man half god unsmiling apparently in love with death. Can we do better than this caricature. Reclaiming Jesus digs through the evidence and comes up with a few surprises and reveals a Jesus most of us haven't met before. We notice his mischievous style with people and his love of the comic and the contradictory. We see him as a youth in the desert struggling to contain his tumult of ideas. We wonder about an unspoken grief in early years. Later discover how he turns traditional ideas inside out seeing human nature within a wholly new reality. We examine what others made of him and trace the story forward to where we are today. Finally we wonder what this extraordinary teaching about a source of strength within us can tell us as our species faces up to the challenges of our own time.
