Big Questions Over Lunch
November 4, 2014
Tuesday
11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Alumni Lounge, University Center
“The Lost Way: How Two Forgotten Gospels Are Rewriting the Story of Christian Origins”

Dr. Stephen Patterson, Atkinson Professor of Religious and Ethical Studies, will share insights from his just-released book of the same title at this month’s Big Questions presentation.

Jesus’ death and resurrection were not always the focus of Jesus’ followers. A tradition parallel to and even earlier than the canonical Gospels presented Jesus not as the son of God, martyr, and miracle worker, but as a teacher of divine wisdom. Patterson is going to discuss two collections of Jesus' sayings, "Q", the lost gospel used by Matthew and Luke, and the Gospel of Thomas that was only discovered in 1945 near Nag Hammadi, Egypt. In addition, he will talk about the Egyptian Christian community from which Apollos, a New Testament teacher of Christian wisdom, emerged.
