This podcast series explores the Gospel of Matthew as literature, as a story. I make the argument that the story is one of a nonviolent revolutionary peasant leader named Jesus or Joshua (depending on whether you transliterate from the Greek or the Hebrew). The story, therefore, is sociopolitically subversive. Not only is the story subversive in its content, it is also subversive in its form. It parodies an ancient genre of literature common among the upper classes.I will make the argument t ...

Jesus diagnoses the problem of demon possession differently than his upper class opponents. He finds the root cause of the problem not in the demon-possessed individual but in the situation of oppression. Special Music by Murry Hammond whose music can be found here.Bert Newton による
 
Matthew has been showing how Jesus and his movement fulfill the visions of the prophets. In chapter 11, the fulfillment theme gets stated so forcefully that it becomes evident that Jesus does not merely fulfill the visions of the prophets but reinterprets them. This reinterpretation is part of a larger program of reinterpreting the world in a way t…
 
After having gathered in the lost - the tax/toll collectors and "sinners" - he suddenly gets called to a high status household, but on the way heals a marginalized woman suffering from menstrual bleeding. Chapters 8 and 9 have Jesus entering the worlds and lives of people who are very separate from each other: a leper, gentiles, women and men, soci…
 
"HOLD ME NOW" is a new song by Loose Bruce Kerr. While Bruce often does parodies, he also writes originals in various styles. This one's in the mold of old Sinatra or Andy Williams standards. Using multi-tracking (invented by his fellow townie of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Les Paul), Bruce adds horns, strings, drums, etc. by synth and plays the guitars, …
 
Who has the authority to forgive sins? Only God? Who has the authority to speak for God then? The ruling classes in antiquity used systems of temples, priests, and sacrifice to control the people. Jesus demonstrates to the people that they don't need any of that to have good standing before God and each other.…
 
In this episode, I make a mistake in the recording. See if you can catch it...you don't have to be a Bible Scholar, you just need to be paying attention. I only caught it after it was all done; there is no way to fix it, and I don't have the time or energy to go back and correct it, so let's make it a game. If you find it, let me know on the Facebo…
 
"THE WRECK OF THE GOOD BOMBA CHARGER" (Live Video, 1981) by Loose Bruce Kerr. In 1981 I was performing my regular seasonal gig on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands at Sparky's Waterfront Saloon. A boat that moved passengers between the Caribbean islands down there was called the "Bomba Charger," held about 24 or so, pretty bare bones. But it go…
 
"HEAD FOR THE HILLS" is Loose Bruce Kerr's latest song, a post-pandemic one and an original that takes its flavor from the 1920's songs his parents taught him growing up in Wisconsin. Bruce plays the uke he learned on and inherited from his father, Ken (a Martin uke). His mother sang 20's & 30's songs while cooking and his dad played uke and whistl…

"GORBY" (audio mp3) is Loose Bruce Kerr's original satire/parody from 1990 on the occasion of the about-to-disintegrate Soviet Union's premier's visit to Stanford U in California's Bay Area. Bruce lived 8 mins away so it was only logical he drove there with his guitar & tape deck around his neck playing his pre-recorded background tracks, mounted C…
 
In this episode, to address our current situation, I take a break from Matthew and hop over to the Gospel of Luke to look at the Parable of the Dishonest Manager - A strange parable for strange times. I am indebted to Ched Myers for opening up the secrets of this parable for me. You can find his article on it at www.radicaldiscipleship.net under th…
 
Jesus takes up John's work of leading a movement for The New Society (Kingdom of Heaven). Matthew's imagery reminds the reader of the setting of this story in the Roman Empire. Jesus liberates his disciples from bondage to the empire, setting them free to join the movement.Bert Newton による
 
In this episode, we follow Jesus through his "vision quest," as he retraces his people's journey in the wilderness through a time of testing/temptation. Jesus has to prove what sort of Messiah or "Son of God" he will be. Please leave comments at the Facebook page (click on the Facebook icon at the top)…
 
Hot off the presses, for all us stay-at-homies, here's "THE 12 DAYS OF LOCKDOWN" (Audio version) to the tune of "The 12 Days of Christmas." With thanks to good friend, Ward Wildanger for suggesting the title and I get off my butt while sequestered like the rest of us, and do something with it. Enjoy! Loose Bruce Kerr is a songwriter (Dr. Demento Sh…

If this series has not been controversial already, it gets even more controversial in this episode. I make the claim that Jesus joins a liberation movement already in progress to get his start as "Messiah." Also I will assert that temples in the ancient world were government institutions that served as mechanisms through which the ruling classes co…
 
In this episode, Jesus and his family become refugees. Fleeing their home country, which is under the brutal occupation of a foreign empire, they take refuge in Egypt, which, according to their national history, was both the place of their people's slavery and also a refuge for those escaping the Babylonian invasion. With this story, the author of …
 
This episode is the only one that will not look at one particular text (all the other episodes will continue progressively through Matthew), but rather at the book as a whole. I make the argument in this episode that the whole Gospel of Matthew parodies a genre in the ancient world to get across a very serious message.…
 
The "virgin birth" of Jesus, the title "Son of God," and the concept of the forgiveness of sins all had resonances in the first century Mediterranean world that they no longer have today. Understanding what those terms and concepts signaled, as well as how this story "fulfilled" the prophetic texts will greatly expand our understanding of what this…
 
In this episode, I describe how the genealogy in Matthew is actually a parody of a genealogy. In the gospel in which Jesus instructs his followers to "call no one on earth 'father,'" this list of fathers is intentionally ironic. I also talk about other "trickster" texts in the Bible such as the praise of King Solomon and the story of the rise of Jo…

As the 20th Anniversary of “Y2K” (the “Millennium Bug”) approaches on December 31, here’s a short music parody VIDEO (set to the music of “YMCA” by the Village People, a hit song from 1978) produced in 1999 by a Silicon Valley tech giant at the time, Sun Microsystems. It was one way the company used to break the ice at Y2K planning meetings in the …
 
NEW VIDEO, 30th Anniversary: when the Loma Prieta Earthquake hit northern California and San Francisco on October 17, 1989, song parodist and performer, Loose Bruce Kerr (an irregular feature on the Dr. Demento Show) produced and distributed an AUDIO cassette which inserted into a fake post-quake news interview popular song snippets to tell the sto…

"OLDSTOCK" is Loose Bruce Kerr's song parody, released upon the 20 anniversary of WOODSTOCK in 1989, now re-released upon the 50th. If we thought we were old with this parody 20 years after, well now in 2019 with the 50th, yeeesh! Based on Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock," also as versioned by CSNY which is the arrangement Bruce used here, this is Bruce…
