Naturally, we all tend to endorse views that parallel or even mirror our own, and I am no exception. However, while we all cherry-pick reality to varying degrees, the thrust of critical biblical scholarship does IMO tend to favor Bowser's perspective (Which is one I pretty much arrived at many moons ago).
If you elect to shoot over to the Hamilton Institute website to read Jeriah's spin on the rabbi from Nazareth, check out his many other well thought out articles. If you happen to favor the ideals and activism of Capt. Paul Watson and his Sea Shepherd Conservation Society you will likely enjoy To Wrench or Not to Wrench: A Brief History of Direct Action in the Environmental Movement and its Potential Consequences, Ethical Implications, and Effectiveness. As one who embraced Watson's cause and many others that broadly fall within the "deep ecology" rubric (starting back in the early 1980s), I am pleased to see a young writer (Bowser) waving deep ecology principles about in his writings. Referring to the aforementioned article, let me quote from Bowser's concluding remarks:
"One can only wonder what history will tell of those eco-warriors, those brave abolitionists of speciesism and ecocide, and those who dared to throw a monkey-wrench into the gears of capitalism in the name of the earth and all of her inhabitants. We must not wonder for too long, however, and neglect our duty to resist,to fight, to act."
Yeshua/Yehoshoa/Jesus was executed by the imperialists of his day for sedition; that is, bucking the entrenched powers and all they did to retain control over their victims....eh....subjects. While most of his focus was on the injustices, sins & other wrongs being perpetuated by the status quo religious and secular power holders & brokers of his day, I believe that were he were alive today he would be saying and doing things utterly at odds with American Christianity and very much in line with the deep ecology movement and the insights and activism of the Capt. Watson's of our age. And I'd wager a lot of what he would be advocating and railing against about would resonate with Bowser's writings and sentiments (and maybe even some of my own).
