Abstract:Was Jesus a political figure? If one says, 'no', s/he must explain Jesus activities and preaching that have pointed political ramifications. If one answers 'yes', s/he must then explain why Jesus never claimed a political title and apparently refused the use of political power. This paradox introduces the question of this dissertation: How can one reconcile the political nature of Jesus with his disinclination to power? The argument progresses in three parts (two chapters each). Part one: "Was Jesus Political?" Chapter three examines his potentially political sayings while chapter four examines his actions which might be understood as political. The evidence indicates that Jesus was rightly considered a political figure by both friend and foe. Part two: "How was Jesus Political?" Chapter five examines Mark 10:32–45, Jesus' clearest articulation of his political praxis; chapter six then scours the rest of the synoptics to determine if this was an idiosyncratic or normative teaching. It concludes that self-abnegation was, in fact, normative for Jesus and that it was not antithetical to his political praxis, rather it was his political praxis. Part three: "Why did Jesus not openly announce his political role?" Chapter seven examines kingship in Israel's past as well as the future hopes of a Messiah. This provides the background for reading chapter eight the gospels' comparisons of Jesus to David, Solomon, and Moses. Here it is demonstrated that Jesus contrasts, rather than compares, himself to these figures. It is argued that Jesus' disinclination to associate himself with other rulers is not a rejection of a political role. Rather, he lived so consistently with his political praxis of self-abnegation that these other rulers were not appropriate models for Jesus to follow. Furthermore, the very claim to such titles was antithetical to his political praxis which relinquished all aggrandizement to God who alone could exalt, abase, judge, and rule.
