As I prepare for my public lecture in Stockton today, I am becoming extremely curious about what my co-presenters will bring to the table. Carrie Schroeder is an expert in Coptic and Early Christianity and George Randels is a religious ethicist. It should be a very interesting discussion about the "Gospel of Jesus' Wife" and a few broader but related topics.
Erstwhile, they have been discussing this in Lodi, CA. Somehow, the comments thread turned toward the topic of violence in Islam. It is always fascinating to see where conversations that begin with Jesus end up.
