After you hear this interview you are gonna want to get Hurtado’s new book Destroyer of gods. In the conversation we discuss just what made
Christianity a distinctive religion in the Roman empire and what came to distinguish Christianity from Judaism. What Hurtado does a great job explaining is just how what we call “religion” is a product of Christianity’s emergence in the Roman world.
Dr. Larry Hurtado was born in Kansas City, but spent much of his career in Scotland until retiring as Professor of New Testament Language, Literature & Theology at the University of Edinburgh. He is known for his research into the origins and development of “devotion to Jesus” in earliest Christianity, and also on textual criticism and the study of earliest Christian manuscripts as informative artifacts of ancient Christianity.
