Was Christ a socialist?

My colleague Dr Celia Green is giving a seminar with this provocative title on Thursday of the week after next in Oxford. Details here. Entry is free and all are welcome.

(I believe her answer will be "no".)

She is planning to examine whether Christ may have had a different radical agenda from the one often attributed to him. Something more to do with psychology than politics.
