    Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication by Professor Bart D. Ehrman, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    In the first centuries after Christ, there was no "official" New Testament. In fact, many Christians held beliefs that today would be considered bizarre, including the belief that Christ’s death and resurrection had nothing to do with salvation. What did these "other" Scriptures say? Do they exist today? If such beliefs were once common, why do they no longer exist? These are just a few of the many provocative questions you explore in Lost Christianities: Christian Scriptures and the Battles over Authentication.

    Jesus and the Gospels by Professor Luke Timothy Johnson, Emory University
    Who was Jesus? Is it possible to shape a single picture from the various accounts of his life? Jesus and the Gospels examines the canonical Gospels of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John familiar to us from the New Testament, as well as the many other, apocryphal narratives and literary works that have contributed to our perceptions of Jesus, Mary, and Christianity. Award-winning Professor Luke Timothy Johnson designed his course to examine the Gospels as literary productions. The lectures seek to encounter not the Jesus behind those compositions, but the Jesus found within them.

    From Jesus to Constantine: A History of Early Christianity by Professor Bart D. Ehrman, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Professor Bart D. Ehrman takes you through Christianity’s first centuries to examine its transition from the religion of Jesus to a religion about Jesus. This 24-lecture series offers you a fresh outlook on the subject’s most intriguing questions.
