Resisting U.S. Empire?

  • Mark Lewis Taylor


I would like to reflect here on the notion of patriotism and Christian practice through a text from the Gospel of Luke (4:24–30). It is full of implications for interpreting the meaning of Christian faithfulness in relation to our loyalties to nation, to others on the boundaries of nations, and ultimately to a global humanity. Let me reproduce this text in full.
