OSU debate: Did Jesus Really Claim to be God?

By Oregon State University Socratic Club

Please put on your calendar our first debate of the year, “Did Jesus Really Claim to be God?” scheduled in Milam Auditorium, Wednesday, October 15, at 7 p.m.  The speakers are Craig Blomberg and Carl Stecher.  Craig Blomberg is Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary.  He holds a PhD in New Testament from Aberdeen University in Scotland.  He is the author of 20 books, including “The Historical Reliability of the Gospels.”  Carl Stecher is Professor Emeritus of Literature at Salem State University.  He earned his PhD from the University of Connecticut.  He is the co-author of “God Questions.”  Both speakers debated one another last year and we are looking forward to having them back.  I hope to see you there.

Some of you might be interested in a new course that I am offering for the first time this fall quarter.  It is Hst 399,

“Early Christianity to A.D. 600.”  The course deals with the origins and Jewish background of Christianity in Palestine, the ministry and teachings of Jesus, the spread of Christianity throughout the Roman Empire, the formation of the New Testament canon, the controversies over doctrine and heresy, and the origins of monasticism and the Papacy.  For more information, feel free to email me at 541.752-7224.
