Learning to understand and talk about Jesus as a historical figure opens many new questions in religion today. Some of these questions will be discussed in this Jesus Seminar on the Road event entitled, “The Historical Jesus and World Religion.” What relationship did Jesus have to the imperial powers of Rome that were shaped and promoted through Roman religious iconography, foundational stories, and practices? To what extent did Jesus liberate himself from the assumptions of his time and to what extent was he caught up in the customs of his time? How does Jesus compare to other great figures from the world’s religions? These and other questions that the historical Jesus inspires will be address with two Westar scholars, Celene Lillie and David Galston.
