Politicizing Jesus with Rev. Dr. Matt Richard

It can be easy to fashion a version of Jesus to fit our political views, to blur the lines between the hope promised in a political campaign with the hope we cling to in Christ. Believe it or not, Jesus is not a democrat or republican. Or an independent. How can we avoid politicizing Jesus? That’s what we’re going to talk about today with our guest, Rev. Dr. Matthew Richard.

Pastor Richard is the pastor of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Minot, ND. He is also the author of Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?
