Event description
John Dickson Lecture | A Doubter's Guide to Jesus | April 8th @ 7:00 p.m. | Countryside Community Church

About this Event

With clarity and insight, Australian scholar John Dickson offers a compelling introduction to Jesus as portrayed in the earliest sources.

The lecture is titled, A Doubter's Guide to Jesus, and in it we get an introduction to the major portraits of Jesus found in the earliest historical sources. We say "portraits" because our best information points not to a tidy, monolithic Jesus, but to a complex, multi-layered and, at times, contradictory figure.

While some might be troubled by this, fearing that plurality equals incomprehensibility or unreliability, others take it as an invitation to do some rearranging for themselves, trying to make Jesus neater, more systematic and digestible.

After two millennia of spiritual devotion and more than two centuries of modern critical research, we still cannot fit Jesus into a box. He is destined to stretch our imaginations, confront our beliefs, and challenge our lifestyles for many years to come.
