"The Gospel Jesus and the Apostles Preached"

Next week, November 3-4,  Gordon College will welcome Scot McKnight--a recognized authority on the New Testament, early Christianity, and the historical Jesus. The Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University, McKnight has given interviews on radio stations across the nation, has appeared on television and regularly speaks at local churches, conferences, colleges and seminaries in the U.S.A. and abroad.

"Scot McKnight is a true scholar and student of the Word. His take on theology is both insightful and refreshing," says Keith Krass, special projects coordinator in the Center for Christian Studies. "McKnight's work is simultaneously accessible yet challenging--thoughtful and gracious yet convicting. His new book One Life is simply a must-read."

This event is part of the Faith Seeking Understanding lecture series at Gordon College and is sponsored by the Center for Christian Studies and the Jerusalem and Athens Forum.

I am not interested in the supernaturalism of Christianity, but am very interested in the study of the early history of the group. I am always happy to have others that are also interested in this topic contact me. My interest specifically is up till perhaps a generation or two after Irenaeus. But I would say I am interested in anything from the Maccabean revolt up till about 384CE when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman empire.
