Jesus Christ and the Importance of History

Wed 11.10.21 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM CST

  • This event has passed.
Christianity appeals to history. Something happened, in the events concerning Jesus, as a result of which — so Christians claim — the world is a different place. But how does ‘history’ actually work? What can it do to help the tasks of theology and apologetics, and above all the work of the gospel?

This event is a webinar, at which Drew Trotter, Ph.D., Senior Scholar for the Consortium of Christian Study Centers, will interview N. T. Wright. Upper House is a member of the Consortium and co-sponsor of this event. The Consortium works to advance the growth and effectiveness of Christian Study Centers at colleges and universities worldwide.

About N. T. Wright

An English New Testament scholar, Pauline theologian, and Anglican bishop, N. T. Wright is the author of numerous books and articles. He is perhaps best known in scholarly circles for his multi-volume work Christian Origins and the Question of God, which includes The Resurrection of the Son of God and Paul and the Faithfulness of God. On the popular side, his commentaries in The New Testament for Everyone series stand out for their clarity and readability. Equally at home in the church and the academy, Wright was the bishop of Durham from 2003 to 2010. He then became research professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at St. Mary’s College at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland until 2019, when he became a senior research fellow at Wycliffe Hall at the University of Oxford.
