My GFU Public Lecture on Early Christian Faith (Gupta)

 

Screen Shot 2019-02-08 at 3.45.54 PMOn March 5 (6pm), I will be giving the Spring 2019 Public Faculty Lecture at George Fox University. My title is:

People of Faith: Why the First Christians Called Themselves “Believers”

This lecture comes out of new work I am doing on why Paul and other early Christians focused on the language of faith and belief, especially in contradistinction to Roman religion.

Anyone in the Portland metro/Newberg area is welcome to this free lecture. I am told it will not be live-cast, but a recording will be posted to Itunes in late March.

For those of you in far-flung regions, I will be giving a more “academic” version of this presentation at SBL, and I am hoping to expand it into a book on Paul’s religion.

  1. Nijay,

    Pray that much fruit will be gathered that night.

    My pastor just returned from Israel with other pastors from the Redding, CA area. While there he came in contact with other Jewish-Christians who call themselves “believers” and not “Christians” since they view that title as a “Gentile” title.

    Your thoughts?
