Beginning April 28, the Adult RE group will listen and discuss the 24-lecture series, “Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication.” In the first centuries after Christ, early Christians read and fervently followed a wide variety of Scriptures—many more than we have today. Relying on these writings, Christians held beliefs that today would be considered bizarre. What did these “other” Scriptures say? If such beliefs were once common, why do they no longer exist? These are just a few of the many provocative questions that arise from the course. Professor Bart D. Ehrman lends his expert guidance as you follow scholars’ efforts to recover knowledge of early Christian groups that lost the struggle for converts, and simply disappeared.
