The Historical Jesus - ONLINE study
Begins May 21, 7 p.m.
Led by Rev. John W. Herbst, PhD

One of the fundamental ideas of Christianity, reflected in our creeds and our liturgies, is that Jesus Christ was not a myth, but that he was an actual human being who walked on earth 2,000 years ago. He is an historical figure, just as George Washington and Alexander the Great are historical figures. So what happens when we study him as a figure in history? Over the next 3 to 6 weeks, John Herbst will be leading a series in which we will try to comprehend Jesus of Nazareth from an historical (rather than faith-based) point of view. John will help us to think about how historians use sources to glean information about Jesus and the world in which he lived. When we utilize the historian’s tools to develop a picture of the man Jesus, we can better grasp what the New Testament is trying to teach us when it talks about the life and message of Jesus Christ. For our first session (Thursday, May 21, 7:00 PM), we will be thinking about our sources of information about Jesus. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the Gospels? What can extra-biblical sources tell us? One of the writers we will be talk about is Flavius Josephus. You might want to read his Antiquities of the Jews 18.3.3, which can be found at http://www.earlychristianwritings.com/testimonium.html. We’ll also talk about John 20:30–31, and about why historians tend to argue that Jesus did not speak the words attributed to him in Matthew 18:15–17.  (In future weeks, we will get much more heavily into the Gospels!)
