We continue our four-part course focusing this term on the gospels of Mark and Matthew as viewed by scholars in the tradition of the Higher Criticism. We watch DVD lectures on these topics by professors Bart Ehrman and Glenn Holland. We also read excerpts from the writings of a variety of Bible scholars and historians. These authors include Ehrman and Holland as well as Reza Aslan, Uta Ranke-Heinemann, Hans KΓΌng, Albert Schweitzer, Tyler Roberts, Elaine Pagels and many others. Please join us for open-minded, tolerant and stimulating discussion. All opinions are welcome.
