Workshop on "Jesus the Messiah"
Excerpt from the Invitation Flyer:
"... Where did Jesus grow up and which religious concepts shaped him? ... Who was he? Was he merely a rebel who sought to destabilize Roman supremecy? Was he just the leader of another Jewish sect at the time of the Herodian Temple? A lay Rabbi? Or was he none other than God's Messiah? ... Also this year we were able to invite renowned scholars to speak to us about these fascinating religious and archaeological topics. They will bring us back to the world of Jesus."

> I quite accidentally discovered a set of short videos on Youtube comprised of film shot during the 1930-1933 seasons at Amarna, under the Directorship of John Pendlebury. The first thing that occurred to me was how ahead of his time he was to realize the power of the moving image to enthrall the public back home! And secondly, it may be the first multimedia excavation ever (in their case, printed report and film).
> Does anyone on the list know if that's true?

re-examining. The clips are available on the Wellcome Trust's website.
