Presenter:  Shively T. J. Smith

This presentation explores the literary representation of Jesus’ death on the cross in the gospel accounts and its historic Roman spectacle of violence and execution using African American Biblical interpretative histories. We consider what interpretative textures African American history provides the readers of the Passion accounts in the Gospels
