Zion Excavation http://wfae.org/post/unc-charlotte-mt-zion-excavation <p>A group of 22 UNC Charlotte students, some of them Levine scholars, participated in a restricted site excavation in Jerusalem this summer. The site is only a few hundred yards away from the room where the Last Supper is alleged to have taken place. The group has just returned to the United States and they've got big news. The archaeologists announce their discoveries and discuss what’s next, when Charlotte Talks.</p><p> Thu, 01 Aug 2013 04:00:00 +0000 32396 at http://wfae.org UNC Charlotte Mt.

It makes sense that after his work on the historical Jesus, Dr. Tabor would turn to Paul, a man who never met Jesus, but one who is credited with shaping Christianity as we know it today. We’ll be joined by James Tabor to talk about his findings, laid out in his new book Paul and Jesus - about Paul’s influence in Christianity and in human history as a whole, Christianity before Paul, and much more.</p><p> Thu, 29 Nov 2012 05:00:00 +0000 16576 at http://wfae.org James Tabor On The Apostle Paul and Jesus Bishop John Shelby Spong (Rebroadcast) http://wfae.org/post/bishop-john-shelby-spong-rebroadcast <p>Charlotte native and former Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, Bishop John Spong has spent a lifetime studying the Bible, and has for many years has been a source of controversy in religious circles for his views on Bible interpretation and what should and should not apply to today’s world.
