James Tabor On The Apostle Paul and Jesus
Dr. James Tabor from UNC Charlotte has spent much time researching and writing about the historical Jesus, looking back at ancient documents and artifacts to piece together details about his life. 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.
Dr. James Tabor - Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at UNC Charlotte. He wrote The Jesus Dynasty and his new book is Paul and Jesus: How the Apostle Transformed Christianity.
