Christians look at Jerusalem experience and it is different from what happened in Medina. Jesus marches into Jerusalem with the army of singing children. Church becomes a body of Christ and a new temple, so geographical center is not needed anymore. Jesus initiated a new movement in which the people of God become the place where God dwells. Christ creates a new community, which begins bereft of any political or economic power. In this part of the lecture David Shenk talks about a huge Constantinian watershed when the church and the Empire in the western world "became married" with a very close relationship. You will also learn about the movements on the edges of the Empire. The teacher will compare the church and the Ummah at the end of this lecture.
This program is already assigned to that list.
