Jesus: Fact or Fiction?

Mars Hill Forum # 35, 11 January 1997, Montclair, New Jersey
Dr. Robert Price

The guest of the forum was Dr. Robert Price, Adjunct Professor of Religion at Drew University. He is a member of the Jesus Seminar and is editor of the Journal of Higher Criticism. Dr. Price asked John Rankin to answer these questions:

  1. Why must Jesus be historical in order for Christian faith to be powerful?
  2. How can there be honest inquiry if the outcome is dictated in advance by one's faith?
  3. Does religious faith merely serve an emotional need?
