Description

Cultural historians, especially those immersed in the study of antiquity (e.g. Judge, Hurtado, Rowe), have increasingly recognized the gospel's contribution to the development of the modern world. An aspect of this contribution that remains under-appreciated is how fundamentally the gospel prepared the way for the modern world's capacity for genuinely transformative invention. This lecture will examine the first gospel's profound contribution to the discourse of design, invention, and ultimately the promise of genuine transformation. It will conclude with suggestions of what we can do about it.
