INTENSIVES WEEK - March 19-23, 2018.
This course surveys the development and adaptation of Christianity starting with the shocking death of a Jewish religious leader and what his followers did afterwards. We consider the next generation of followers and teachers who took the Jesusâ message and adapted it for their time and place. We see how politics and location shaped Christianity in the east and west. We will explore the themes of adaptation, diversity, and power through primary readings from voices you may not have heard before.
