Christian History Series #4: The Most Interesting Man in the World (Part 1)

Christian History Series #4: The Most Interesting Man in the World (Part 1)

What beliefs define a true Christian? That was a key question after Constantine barred Christian persecution, lifting them from prisons to palaces. In the fourth and fifth centuries, the key questions of the faith centered around the divinity and humanity of Jesus. Was he God like God the Father or a created man? How did that work out specifically? In this part of our lecture series, we will explore how the early church affirmed Jesus’s full humanity as well as his full divinity and why these things are crucial even for us today.

Christian History Series #3: The Canon Heard Round the World (Part 6)

Today, we hear a lot about the so-called “lost books” of the Bible. The charge is made that somehow the church hand-selected only those documents that would keep them in power and other equally valid texts were ignored. Is this true? In our third lecture series, Lenny looks at how the Bible canon developed, why there are good reasons to leave others out, and just how we know these 66 books are truly the word of God.

Christian History Series #2: Are We Living in the Matrix? (Part 6)

As Christianity gained more and more adherents in the second and third centuries, another threat rose against it. This time, instead of persecuting from without, new cults sprang up threatening to corrupt it from within. The most prevalent of these were the various forms of Gnosticism, each of which denied the reality of the physical world and held up the spiritual as a higher level of being. In this session, Lenny will discuss the tenets of Gnosticism and show why the early church held that God is God of the material world—including our bodies and our biology—as well as the spiritual!

Christian History Series #1: Eleven Breaking into the Upside-Down (Part 6)

The first Christians were part of a world that was so different from our own that we would hardly recognize it. Not only did they battle persecution and discrimination, but the very values we now take for granted — like individuals being equal — were considered strange and dangerous. Rome saw the teachings of Christianity as a threat to their culture and they were right. The eleven apostles took the Gospel of Jesus and broke through the upside-down culture of ancient Rome to establish a new way of thinking, paying for it with their blood.
