What if ...
the most influential man in human history never lived?

THE JESUS

PROJECT

Please join us for the
OFFICIAL WEST COAST INAUGURATION
with a presentation by R. Joseph Hoffmann

Sunday, February 18 at 2 p.m.
(Following the regularly scheduled lecture
at CFI-West)
- admission is free -


     The Center for Inquiry Transnational, in conjunction with its Committee for the Scientific Examination of Religion (CSER) announces the creation of the Jesus Project. The Jesus Project will enlist the talents of scholars from many disciplines to try to determine the likelihood of Jesus of Nazareth having ever existed.

     Spearheading this important undertaking is the Chairman of CSER, R. Joseph Hoffmann. The goal of the project, according to Hoffmann, is not to "prove" the non-existence of Jesus, but to take the theory as a "testable hypothesis" and use the best methods of critical inquiry to reach a probable conclusion.

     Members of the Project include James M. Robinson (senior consultant), editor of the international Q Project and of the Nag Hammadi (Gnostic) Library project; Van Harvey, a leading philosopher and historian and chair emeritus of Religious Studies at Stanford University; Gerd Luedemann, a Jesus Seminar veteran and professor at the University of Goettingen; Robert Price, editor of the Journal of Higher Criticism; and other leading scholars in biblical studies, classics and ancient history, social anthropology and archaeology.

     The Jesus Project will meet twice a year as a public seminar at universities and other venues in North America. For further information, contact Gwyn MacRae.

All are welcome!
