The Historical Study of Christianity
Lecture # 1
Sept 15, 2019 11:45 am. To 1:00 pm.
Christianity began in obscurity as a minor sect of Judaism in the 1st century of the Common Era. For the first three centuries of its existence, it offered few signs that it would one day dominate the world. Over a period of two millennia, it has grown, spread, and constantly changed, now appearing in every land and every language. It is the largest and most universal of the world’s religions. This course considers the first three stages of this grand story, beginning in this first lecture with a discussion of the importance of applying a historical perspective to Christianity and the limitations we will face as we embark on this endeavour.
