Professor Allan F. Wright Presents on Middle Eastern Society's View of Jesus  

Allan Wright Seton Hall University's Campus Ministry and Catholic Studies proudly present: "The Story Behind The Story, Why Some People Were Angry And Upset At Jesus," on Thursday, October 5th at 8:00 p.m. in the University Center Chancellor's Suite.

All are invited to attend. This is a free event. Refreshments will be available.

About the Lecture:
Too often Jesus is characterized as being "nice" by our culture. Yet, in the Middle Eastern society in which Jesus lived he was not afraid to challenge and indeed dishonor those who would seek to push others out of the Kingdom of God. When we read of the encounters that Jesus had with people, there is often another story, another layer that is only fully realized through the lens of our Western culture. When we realize the "story behind the story" no wonder why some people were angry and upset.
