Sunday, April 17, at 11:00 a.m. – DOES THE HISTORICAL JESUS REALLY MATTER? – On the eve of the twenty-fifth anniversary of The Jesus Seminar last fall, Peter Laarman suggested it was a “good time to ask what difference it makes when the Jesus of history turns out to be considerably more interesting than the myth-encrusted Christ created by the church over the centuries. Or does it make any difference at all?” As long as truth matters, and as long as Jesus is claimed as an authority in both politics and religion, then the search to uncover the Jesus of history does indeed matter. Rev. Stefan Jonasson will preach.
