The Easter Story - fact or fable

Description

Easter - fact or fable?

Why was the long-promised Messiah Jesus brutally executed on a crude Roman Cross?  What was the early apostles’ experience of Jesus post the Crucifixion? Was Jesus physically raised from the dead?

These two seminal events of the Christian tradition will be examined in light of the latest research and biblical scholarship, especially the Jesus Seminar. The Easter events, their place in history and their relevance for today will also be noted.
