How did Jesus come to be worshipped?

24 June - 7 July 2021, Woodbrooke online

While there remain important questions about some of the detail of Jesus' life, there are firm grounds for the reality of a man called Jesus who lived and taught around the sea of Galilee before heading for Jerusalem where he was executed in a manner fit for a slave. Only decades later, Roman documents provide evidence for this man being worshipped as a god. Together we'll explore how this came about.

While there remain important questions about some of the detail of Jesus' life, there are firm grounds for the reality of a man called Jesus who lived and taught around the sea of Galilee before heading for Jerusalem where he was executed in a manner fit for a slave. Only decades later, Roman documents provide evidence for this man being worshipped as a god. How does this come about? Over two sessions we will examine the speed with which this happened, the ideas that make this development possible and the external circumstances that force the early Christians to define what they believe more clearly. You will learn from recent scholarship that has explored this question to better inform your own sense of what it was about the experiences of the early Christians that led them to take this extraordinary step.



Live sessions are every Thursday at 16:00-17:30.
