Institute of Advanced Theology Fall 2015 Lecture Series with Bruce Chilton: "The Death and Resurrection of Jesus."
Friday, October 16, 2015
The Institute of Advanced Theologly will host the 2015 Fall Advent Luncheon Lecture Series, "The Death and Resurrection of Jesus," led by Bruce Chilton. The lecture series will begin on Friday, October 16 and will continue on Fridays - October 23, 30, and November 6, and November 13th. 

Presentation begins at 12:30 at the Bard Chapel of the Holy Innocents.  No reservations required for just attending the lectures.

A brief description:
Resurrection: the Case of Jesus

 -  Issues concerning the possibility of afterlife have provoked perennial  controversy, especially since the Enlightenment. Because Jesus is the most    famous case of the claim a person rose from the dead, partisans have drawn  up sides between those who insist his Resurrection was physical and those   who argue it was an hallucinogenic metaphor. Most of that discussion has been conducted in the abstract, without regard to specific texts. Our  discussion will reverse that emphasis, and develop a properly exegetical  understanding of how the Resurrection was experienced and iinterpreted before asking whether it might attract belief.
