What's the talk about?

 What is the talk about?


This talk is entitled 'What We Can Establish about the Historical Jesus", and will seek to discover what we can about this character who has inspired so many, can be shrouded in myth and millenia of reinterpretation, but is arguably the most influential and most studied man ever.

James Crossley joined St Mary’s University in London in September 2015 as Professor of Bible, Society and Politics after ten years at the University of Sheffield where he was Professor of Bible, Culture and Politics. His research and teaching interests can be put into two broad categories: Christian origins and Judaism in the 1st century; the Bible in political discourses in the 20th and 21st centuries.

He has debated with the leading proponents of a conservative take on the historical Jesus on the Christian Premier radio show and podcast 'Unbelievable?'

He's a proud Yorkshireman

 



Who are we?

Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.

Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife and many other areas of life. We we often end up talking about superstition, science, religious fundamentalism, health, censorship and conspiracy theory

We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism..

You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in with conversation and views!
