Rev.Dr. Shively Smith, Assistant Professor of New Testament at Boston University School of Theology
This presentation explores the literary representations of Jesus’ death on the cross in the gospels through the lens of African American Biblical interpretative histories. In particular, the presentation considers the artistic interpretations of crucifixion as a pathway for clarifying the spectacle of violence and execution in the Roman World and America’s lynch culture.
