Mystic N Skeptic

In this show from Season 1 we are honored to have a world renown scholar who participated in the Jesus Seminar in the 1990’s. His books include Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography and The Historical Jesus: The Life of a Mediterranean Jewish Peasant. During our show John Dominic Crossan explains his view of the historical Jesus  and elaborates on his reconstruction of the historical figure. In his research he portrays Jesus as a hellenized Jewish cynic philosopher, he also discussed Jesus Jewish heritage, his social teachings as well as his revolutionary tactics against the Roman empire.

Along with Marcus Borg, John Dominic Crossan has co-authored a series of books: The Last Week: A Day by Day Account of Jesus’s Final Week in Jerusalem (2006); The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach about the Birth of Jesus (2007); and The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church’s Conservative Icon(2009).

His most recent book is How to Read the Bible and Still Be a Christian: Struggling with Divine Violence from Genesis through Revelation (HarperOne, 2015).
