Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Essential listening on the historical Jesus from a celebrated historian and Catholic scholar. For nearly 2,000 years, Christians have followed the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Indeed, no other person has had such a wide-ranging and powerful impact on the history of the Western world. This has compelled scholars and the faithful alike to undertake the quest for knowledge about his life. Now, you too can take this quest. In this masterful audio series, you will explore the ways contemporary scholarship, scripture, and our culture have approached the life of Jesus. Your guide, history scholar and Catholic educator David Zachariah Flanagin, provides a singular and faithful perspective on this inspiring subject. First, you will consider the major issues of the historical record that affect what we do and don't know about Jesus' life. Then, after exploring three well-known reconstructions of Jesus in the work of contemporary scholars, you will examine the most fruitful line of inquiry into the historical Jesus: research that situates him firmly within the world of first-century Palestinian Judaism. This course will help you to understand the key issues, illuminating insights, and problematic uncertainties that surround the fundamental question, Who is Jesus? As you embark on this journey, you will deepen your faith and understanding. This course includes a free PDF study guide.
