The Christian gospel promises real freedom. Still, we experience that as a community from our own history, experiences, and culture. What might we learn about this gospel of liberation other Christian communities other than our own?

Join us alongside Dr. Victor Ezigbo for a two-week class exploring what the Christian gospel has meant in the life of Dalit – often called “Untouchable” – communities.

Week One: The Context of Life of Dalits in India’s Caste-Based Relations

Week Two: The Role of Jesus in Dalits’ Theological Response to Caste-Based Relations
