John Dominic Crossan is back on the podcast. Crossan is a legendary New Testament scholar, Jesus Seminar provocateur, and popular lecturer all across the progressive church. We will discuss the last 30 years of historical Jesus research, its role in the academy, the growing audience in the public square, changes in the church and his two most recent books The Power of Parable & The Greatest Prayer.
We recently re-published Crossan’s first visit to the podcast over 5 plus years ago on the new Barrel Aged podcast stream. Go check out his discussion of God and Empire which remains my favorite book of his.
