NT Wright explores his book Simply Jesus: A New Vision of Who He Was, What He Did, and Why He Matters with the folks at Moody Bible Institute. He gets some lecture time and then there is a very civil debate which is refreshing to see after that.
A sermon by Francis Chan
We are spending the week focusing on Christology, the study of Jesus Christ. Ashish Naidu Associate Professor of Theology at Biola University covers ‘Who is Jesus Christ?’ and the rabbit hole that goes after that.
Pete Rollins shares his journey in examining the resurrection, what we’ve forgotten about and what might offend us. Good thing the audio is good for this because he moves really fast. Might have to watch this more than once to get it all. If you have never listened to Pete go down the rabbit hole then you need to, if he offends you he will at least do it with some stories to put perspective upside down.
Peter Rollins offers some of this thoughts on modern Christianity and some of his theological explorations, followed by a Q&A time with Pete and Barry Taylor, Brehm Center professor of arts and culture. brehmcenter.org for more information.
Amy-Jill Levine is one of the foremost sought after scholars of New Testament. One aspect that is unique to Dr. Levine is that she is Jewish and a New Testament and Jesus Scholar. She laces this talk with a lot of biblical period context as well as mix of the Jewish and Christian theologies. As well she tosses in a number of jokes.
Definitely recommend her book: The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus
Amy-Jill Levine is Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School.

Father Richard Rohr gives explanation to the “Cosmic Christ” saying that Jesus and Christ are actually two different entities. Jesus is the person of biblical history and 2000 years old. “The Christ” is the entity that has been around from the beginning of time. Just check it out, he’s much more into this than I am.
