The Meaning and Challenge of Resurrection with John Dominic Crossan



Renowned New Testament scholar and historian of early Christianity, John Dominic Crossan will be speaking at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Santa Barbara, CA, on February 21 & 22, 2020. His academic focus, both scholarly and popular, in books, videos, or lectures is on the historical Jesus as the norm and criterion for the entire Christian Bible. This reconstructed Jesus incarnates nonviolent resistance to the Romanization of his Jewish homeland and Herod’s commercialization of the Sea of Galilee as a present model and future hope for a transformed world and transfigured earth. The program includes four lectures.

Friday 7-8:30 PM:
Jesus’ Life as Challenge to Galilean Romanization
Saturday 9-10:30 AM:
Jesus’ Execution for Nonviolent Revolution against Imperial Violence
Saturday 11-12:30 PM:
