Alan Streett on the Lord’s Supper as subversive anti-imperial meal

Multifaith Matters

In this conversation with Alan Streett, Senior Research Professor of Biblical Theology at Criswell College, we discuss the thesis of his book Subversive Meals: An Analysis of the Lord's Supper under Roman Domination during the First Century. Dr. Streett talks about the Roman form of the meal that the early church adopted, the subversive and anti-imperial nature of the meal, its radical egalitarian aspects, and how this applies the to the American church in the twenty-first century in a time of pandemic and the church's close alliance with empire.
