...now from Marxist philosophers who emphasize the radical nature of Paul. First was Alain Badiou ( 2003 [1997] ) , for whom Paul is the exemplar of the revolutionary event (Christ’s resurrection), which he names and which inspires fidelity and hope in a militant band. Giorgio Agamben ( 2005 [2000] ) replied with a different approach, arguing that Paul offers a radical approach to the “time that is left us,” a seizing of a moment of kairos out of the stream of kronos and bringing it to fulfillment. There followed Slavoj Žižek ( 2000 , 2001 , 2003 , ...

...is perceptible to humankind. Twenty-first-century political theology. The idea of glory has been taken up by political theorist Giorgio Agamben ( b. 1942 ). His book The Kingdom and the Glory is part of a lineage of scholarly work which traces the migration of theological concepts into the ideology of the modern state. For Agamben, the idea of glory is one such concept that, now secularized, forms the basis of government. Agamben notes the way that kābôd in the Old Testament has a dual reference, to God’s own splendor and to human acclamation ( 2011 , p....

...short. Giorgio Agamben has insisted that it is precisely the urgency of what Paul refers to as the now time ( ho nun kairos ) in which it is necessary and possible to enact the coming justice that characterizes messianic politics, then and now ( 2005 , pp. 59–78). For those who suppose that there is no such time compression, that things never really change, the dream or hope of communism will always seem to be foolish, something that Paul also said with respect to his proclamation of the cross ( 1 Cor 1:18 ).

...being written for the stage, the great team of translators who would produce the “authorized version” of scripture were busy with their royally appointed task. Instead, borrowing a term from Giorgio Agamben ( 2007 ) , we might do better to speak, as polemicists against the stage so insistently did throughout the period, of a “profanation” of the Bible, that is, as Agamben puts it, of a repositioning of sacred materials beyond the ambit of the sacred (“pro-fanum,” before the temple) “by means of an entirely inappropriate use (or, rather, reuse) of the sacred:...

...crucis in order to articulate more radically communal and countercultural vision of ecclesial life. These trajectories have even been taken up notably within the last several decades by philosophers associated with more atheistic traditions, including Alain Badiou, 30 Giorgio Agamben, 31 and Slavoj Zizek. 32 Should these trajectories continue to draw the interest of scholars and philosophers, then it may be that a key element of future interest in Luther’s hermeneutics centers upon the sociopolitical dimensions of theologia crucis and their...

...resolutions of divine freedom in the terms of divine subjectivity, not even to say some of the more daring Trinitarian attempts to resolve divine freedom and promise that have emerged right up to the present day. Luther seems to perpetuate the problem of sovereignty that Giorgio Agamben has identified: that anyone who may act exceptionally or against an otherwise established order always undoes that order. 37 This kind of sovereignty creates problems for any promise because the very condition of possessing the power to do what one wills allows the promisor...
