DEC 22 SEASONS GREETINGS vs MERRY CHRISTMAS, WHAT’S THE REASON. An introductory video followed by a discussion on the thought behind the phrases “happy holidays” and “season’s greetings”. Are these terms downplaying Christianity or are their use practicing “peace on earth and good will to men”? Video will include a glimpse of several religious holidays during the months of December and January.
DEC 29 LECTURE 10 Authority of the Early Church DVD lecture by Bart D. Ehrman, Ph.D., Chairman of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill. This lecture will discuss what drove Christians to construct a canon of Scripture, a collection of authoritative books. Given the varying understandings of the Christian religion, there were a variety of books from which to choose. How did Christian leaders know which books to include in this New Testament? Suggested reading: Walter Bauer, Orthodoxy and Heresy in Earliest Christianity.
