Group Description

XTalk: Historical Jesus and Christian Origins is a moderated, academic e-List dedicated to the scholarly investigation and discussion of critical questions and issues surrounding the study of the Jesus of History and the rise of Christianity. For detailed information, please see the group's Homepage at http://ntgateway.com/xtalk/

The List's purpose is to provide an on-line platform for queries, debate, and proposals relating to the reconstruction of

*the life, career, and aims of Jesus of Nazareth

*the social, political, and religious world in which he lived, and

*the nature and development of the social/religious movement which arose in his name.

Additionally, XTalk is intended to be a venue in which those working professionally in the field of Historical Jesus studies and Christian origins may post and receive critical responses to papers or ideas that are in the process of development.

This moderated list is intended primarily for professional scholars engaged in Historical Jesus research. But graduate students, pastors, and others interested in the serious academic study of the Historical Jesus and Christian origins are also welcome to participate, as long as they respect the academic focus of the group. Contributors are expected to be familiar with the sources, tools and methods used in the critical study and exegesis of the New Testament and other ancient writings as well as with the history and contours of Historical Jesus studies, both classical and recent.
