The Historical Jesus

Placeholder


COURSE OVERVIEW
In the beginning is the Question, because for any other beginning, why is always possible and inevitable. For this series of four image-based classes, that question is not the theological, but the evolutionary challenge of Jesus. The series brackets theism versus atheism or monotheism versus polytheism to insist that the challenge of Jesus, the Mediterranean Jewish peasant, is to the evolutionary future of humanity with the world as Titanic and we its iceberg.

– Five visual lectures with John Dominic Crossan.
– Four livestream Q&As with special guests Brian Zahnd, Brian McLaren, Jennifer Garcia Bashaw, and Diana Butler Bass.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS
Dr. Tripp Fuller is the founder and host of the #1 theology podcast, Homebrewed Christianity. As an author, speaker, podcaster, and professional theologian he is committed to bringing the best resources from the academy to the church so we can brew a more robust faith today.

John Dominic Crossan is an Irish-American biblical scholar with two-year post-doctoral diplomas in exegesis from Rome’s Pontifical Biblical Institute and in archeology from Jerusalem’s École Biblique. He has been a mendicant friar and a catholic priest, a Co-Chair of the Jesus Seminar, and a President of the Society of Biblical Literature. His focus, whether scholarly or popular, whether in books, videos, or lectures, is on the historical Jesus as the norm and criterion for the entire Christian Bible. His reconstructed Jesus incarnates nonviolent resistance to the Romanization of his Jewish homeland and the Herodian commercialization of his Galilean lake as present program and future hope of a transformed world and transfigured earth. Crossan’s method is to situate biblical texts within the reconstructed matrix of their own their own genre and purpose, their own time and place, and to hear them accurately for then before accepting or rejecting them for now.
