 Description: Dr. Crossan’s lectures are based on his book, In Search of Paul, which he coauthored with field archeologist Dr. Jonathon Reed. Crossan, a world-renowned Jesus scholar and author, explores the biblical text, first and second century non-Christian documents and cutting edge archaeological research to show that the Mediterranean world of the first century was dominated and shaped by Roman Imperial religious and economic agenda. He says that it was against this background that early Christians offered their alternative program for community and society. Indeed, he says, early Christians understood that it was not Caesar who was the Son of God and Savior of the World, as the Empire taught, but in fact, it was Jesus of Nazareth, a Jewish peasant from Galilee in Judea. Crossan’s lectures provide a new, vibrant picture of the world into which Jesus and the emerging church were born.
