Marcus Borg & John Dominic Crossan

The First Christmas

In the FaithandReason® seminar,The First Christmas,hosted by All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Atlanta, GA, December 12 & 13, 2008, renowned Jesus scholars, Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan, joined  forces to show how history has biased our reading of the nativity story as it  appears in the gospels of Matthew and Luke. They explore the beginning of the life of Christ, peeling away the sentimentalism that has built up over the last two thousand years around this most well known of all stories to reveal the truth of what the gospels actually say. Borg and Crossan helped us to see this  well-known narrative afresh by answering the question, "What do these  stories mean?" in the context of both the first century and the twenty-first century.
