Scholars from around the world will come to Dayton this fall to debate the "historical Jesus" and the methods historians have used over the past century to study the central figure of the Christian faith.

United Theological Seminary and The University of Dayton are co-hosting a two-day conference Oct. 4-5 on “Jesus, Criteria, and the Demise of Authenticity,” based on the book of the same title edited by Anthony LeDonne and Chris Keith (T&T Clark, 2012). The conference will be held at South Park United Methodist Church, 140 Stonemill Road, Dayton, OH, 45409.

Bringing together world-class authors and speakers, this conference will discuss "authenticity" and "criteria" as these concepts have been traditionally understood and employed in New Testament studies, and will critique the assumptions and methods of the so-called "Third Quest for the Historical Jesus."

Speakers include Dale C. Allison, Jr., Pittsburgh Theological Seminary; Mark Goodacre, Duke University; Chris Keith, Lincoln Christian University; Anthony Le Donne; Loren T. Stuckenbruck, Princeton Theological Seminary; Jens Schroeter, Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin; Dagmar Winter, Newcastle Diocese, UK; and Rafael Rodríguez, Johnson University.
