Galilean Journey Revisited: Mestizaje, Anti-Judaism, and the Dynamics of Exclusion

The article explores Virgilio Elizondo’s Galilean Journey and its critiques, particularly the claim that he uses anti-Jewish rhetoric. While acknowledging the legitimacy of some concerns, the author argues that in both its object of study (the New Testament portrayal of Jesus as Galilean) and its hermeneutical location (marginalized contemporary believers), Elizondo’s work provides regulative principles for interpretation that guard against the dangers of anti-Jewish, supersessionist readings of the Gospels. The key lies in viewing Jesus’ prophetic ministry as a model of faithful dissent against forces of marginalization and exclusion.
