The Jesus Papers and the Gospel of Judas
The recent publication of The Jesus Papers and the new translation of the Gospel of Judas -- and, of course, the ongoing popularity of The Da Vinci Code -- has put modern interpretations and the historical reality of The New Testament into the media spotlight.
Media seeking context and commentary can contact Professor Richard Ascough, who can speak to the historical reality behind the biblical story of Jesus and current writings on this topic.
An Associate Professor of New Testament with Queen's Theological College, Professor Ascough is currently researching the dynamics of religious interaction and community development in small religious associations in the Greco-Roman world, to explore modern theories of Christian origins. In a separate line of research, Prof. Ascough has an ongoing interest in how religion intersects with film in terms of mythmaking, worldview and the creation of self or group identity.
