We conclude our four-part course concentrating this term on the Gospel of John and the Book of Revelation as viewed by scholars mainly in the tradition of the Higher Criticism. We watch DVD lectures on these topics by professors Bart Ehrman, Craig Koester, Amy-Jill Levine, and Teofilo Ruiz. We also read excerpts from the writings of a variety of Bible experts and historians. These authors include our lecturers as well as Grant Hardy, John Spong, Frederick Murphy, Norman Cohn, Barbara Walker and many other scholars. Join us for an open minded, tolerant, and stimulating discussion.
