Mansfield Lecture

Stephen Mansfield will be speaking about his new book, “Killing Jesus.”

About his book, Mansfield says: “During my college years, I heard some brilliant professors talk about the details of the crucifixion of Jesus. One spoke of how Jewish Law played a role. Another spoke of the evolution of torture in the Roman Empire. I was both moved and fascinated. Over the years, I read what I could find on the subject and hoped one day to retell what I had learned in a manner that was consistent with scripture but also incorporated Roman and Jewish writings on the subject. That opportunity has come and I’m thrilled with the result. There is a great deal of emphasis on Jesus today and from every philosophical perspective. I trust my book is a creative, scholarly contribution to this grand discussion.”
