The Historical Jesus
Saturday 1st August 2015
Professor Bart D Ehrman has recorded 24 lectures in which he examines historical evidence regarding the man Jesus of Nazareth. At the Cornflakes Theology Group we hope to listen to each lecture (apprx. 30 mins. ) and spend the rest of the evening in discussion. Prof. Ehrman's method involves an objective approach to the examination of New Testament documents as well as extra biblical material. We feel that it is important to make this study for two principal reasons. First that the pursuit of truth is fundamental to the raison d'etre of Cornflakes, but also it is important for those who would 'defend the faith' to be informed of the findings of modern biblical studies.
