Tuesday March 05, 2013

The fifth lecture in the series, titled "The Birth of the New Testament: Exploring a Conspiracy Theory" will be given by David Johnson, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament.

Lecture Description:

Is the New Testament the result of random events in the life of the early church? Or were there political and/or religious forces that brought together the twenty-seven books now in the canon? The lecture will explore various theories, some of which have shown up in popular culture like the Da Vinci Code and Piers Morgan.
