      On: The First Jesus
      From: Bruce

      Those whose interest has been piqued by a possible parallel between Jesus and a
      previous slave Messiah may like to look into Winsome Munro's last work, which
      intends to establish the possibility that Jesus himself was a slave.

      Winsome Munro, Jesus Born of a Slave: The Social and Economic Origins of
      Jesus's Message. Edwin Mellen 1998. The final editing was carried out by
      Munro's St Olaf College colleague Bill Poehlmann, following Munro's death in
      June 1994.

      That Munro herself came from South Africa, and was an active opponent of that
      regime, may perhaps color (or one might say, inspire) her conclusions.

      And no, Munro does not (at least not in the posthumously compiled index to her
      book) mention Simon of Peraea.
