Learning to Love an Irrational Jesus: What a Fully Human Jesus Means for Fully Human People

July 13, 201911:00 am11:50 am
We’re pretty solid and Christ’s divinity in the church- we’ve spent a lot of airtime on that. But what about his humanity? If we talk about Jesus’ humanity at all it’s often apologetically. Based on my work in The Irrational Jesus I make a fully throated pitch for using what we know about cognitive bias, what Dan Ariely calls our “predictable irrationality” to highlight areas of Jesus’ full humanity. And we’ll learn about common cognitive biases, including implicit racial, gender, and sexual identity bias, and learn how understanding more about our bias makes us better able to work well and play with others.
