Did the First Christians worship Jesus? James Dunn's latest book

18 March 2010: Did the First Christians worship Jesus?

Christians today accept that Jesus is God and worship him as part of the Trinity. But what did the New Testament writers say about worshipping Jesus? Did they por
tray him as God, someone whom we should worship? Or did they see him as a great prophet like Moses or Elijah?

Here, James Dunn introduces readers to the key New Testament passages that must be examined when trying to understand this important topic. He argues that we find a clear sense that Jesus enables worship, that Jesus is in a profound way the place and means of worship. Equally, for the first Christians Jesus was seen to be not only the one by whom believers come to God, but also the one by whom God has come to believers.

About the Author

James D. G. Dunn is Emeritus Professor of Divinity, University of Durham and is the author of numerous ground-breaking works in New Testament Studies. His most recent publications include A New Perspective on Jesus: What the Quest for the Historical Jesus Missed, Jesus Remembered, The Cambridge Companion to St Paul and The Theology of Paul the Apostle.

Den romersk-katolske kirke - med ryggen mot framtida? Forelesning med Ola Tjørhom 18. mars

På kunstmuseet i Kristiansand 18. mars kl. 19-20.45 holder Ola Tjørhom en forelesning over Den romersk-katolske kirkes historie i det siste århundret!

Den romersk-katolske kirkes historie det siste drøye hundreåret er mangslungen og tildels spenningsfyllt. Etter en lengre fase preget av bastant antimodernisme, framsto Det annet Vatikankonsil (1962-65) som en revolusjonær begivenhet som førte til flere tiår med tøvær. Den siste tiden har imidlertid nykonservative holdninger fått stadig sterkere gjennomslag, mens arven fra konsilet trues av marginalisering og glemsel.

Nåværende pave, Benedikt XVI, kan kanskje ikke betegnes som entydig konservativ. Men han gjør i økende grad bruk av en massiv antimodernistisk retorikk som minner om de holdningene som dominerte ved overgangen til 1900-tallet. Slik har han skapt stort rom for dagens nykonservative strømninger innenfor kirken.

Ola Tjørhom, som p.t. vikarierer ved Institutt for religion, filosofi og historie ved UiA, er selv katolikk. I foredraget vil han gi et kort riss av Den katolske kirkes nyere historie og drøfte aktuelle strømninger innenfor katolisismen i et kritisk perspektiv.

Gå ikke glipp av dette!

Religious Roots of Europe

Religiousrootsofeurope

How were Judaism, Christianity and Islam formed? How did these three religions and their interaction shape the emerging European culture and society?

The new Master Programme (The Religious Roots of Europe) was launched in autumn 2009, and seeks to answer all these questions.

The Master Programme is offered in cooperation between the six Nordic universities of Aarhus, Bergen, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Lund and Oslo. Compact seminars are organised at all these institutions as well as in Nordic institutes in the Mediterranean area. RRE offers a truly international education with perspectives for a subsequent career in research and education as well as in governmental and private institutions, organisations and companies were the need for knowledge on religion and culture is increasingly recognised.

Richard Bauckham on John 10:30

    I and the Father are one.

"It is surprising that this does not semme to have been previously recognized as an allution to the Shema', but we have already noticed that the formular 'God is one' was a common abbreviation of the Shema'. It is true that, in all Greek echoes of the Shema', the word for one is masculine (heis), as we should expect, whereas in John 10:30 it is neuter (hen). But this is a necessary adaption of language. Jesus is not saying that he and the Father are a single person, but that they (!!!) together are one God."
