Week In Review

It's not too late to register for our conference in Dayton, OH - Oct 4-5. This conference features Dale Allison, Mark Goodacre, Anthony Le Donne, Jens Schroeter, Chris Keith, Loren Stuckenbruck, Dagmar Winter, Rafael Rodriguez, and Barry Schwartz.

Anthony reviewed David Watson's Honor Among Christians. Watson takes on Wrede's seminal "messianic secret" thesis from the perspective of honor and shame cultural cues. Here.

Chris announced a giveaway of our book. You can still enter here.

Anthony interviewed Mark Goodacre. Parts I, II, III and IV are here, herehere, and here.

Chris and Anthony both chimed in to praise the lovely loveliness of Goodacre's contribution to our conference and book. Here and here.

We announced that our conference in Dayton, OH (this TH and F) will be connected via live and interactive feed to the University of Edinburgh.

Anthony revealed his man-crush for McIver's work on memory and the Ebbinghausian forgetfulness curve here.

Anthony completed his interview with Helen Bond. Part IV is here.

Anthony summed up the Jesus' Wife Gospel controversy launched by Harvard Professor, Karen King here.

Chris wrote about the impact of our conference topic for Church concerns. While Scot McKnight argues that the historical Jesus is of no value for the Christian Church, Chris thinks that this topic is an important one to explore further. Link here.

Anthony embarrassed himself by gushing over the wonderment of historical Jesus scholar, Jens Schroeter here.

Anthony asked the question: "Would Jesus have looked like a Charlatan to you?" He recounted a conversation he had with a foul-mouthed Baptist on this topic.
