In part 2 of our conversation with Dr. M. David Litwa we talk about the divinity of kings in the ancient world, and the politics that is represented there. Gnosticism can be a political criticism, and can also reinforce a political ideology. Finally, we talk about Jesus in the New Testament and when he was considered divine.
Dr. Litwa’s new book is Desiring Divinity: Self-deification in Early Jewish and Christian Mythmaking, and his website is https://mdavidlitwa.wordpress.com/
