Lecturer at this year’s annual Church of Ireland Theological Lectures at Queen’s University, Belfast, is Professor Richard Bauckham, Professor of New Testament Studies at St Andrew’s.
Under the umbrella title of ‘The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony: New Reflections,’ Professor Bauckham addresses two vital questions.
In the first lecture, on Monday February 5, he explores the issue of the historical Jesus in a talk entitled ‘How do we know anything about Jesus?’
The following evening, Tuesday February 6, his second lecture entitled ‘The Gospels and the eyewitnesses’ examines the relationship between the Gospels and history.
Both lectures will be held in the geography lecture theatre at Queen’s, starting at 6pm. Tea and biscuits will be served from 5pm in The Oasis, 22 Elmwood Avenue, Belfast.
