Event Details

Audience: All

David F. Ford, the 2018 distinguished visiting professor in the Alonzo L. McDonald Family Chair on the Life and Teachings of Jesus and Their Impact on Culture and Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, will deliver the first of two lectures, "Jesus in the 21st Century." 

Lunch will be provided to all who register. Jesus is central to the world's largest religion today. The Gospel of John has probably been the testimony to Jesus that has had most influence on Christian thought. This lecture asks how the Gospel of John's account of Jesus should be understood in the 21st century.
