I am currently in California for my annual trek to Talbot to teach the Life of Jesus in two weeks (Whew!). While here I am also wrapping up an essay on an evangelical take on the historical Jeus for a book that will feature six widely divergent views on the question.

After a month in Israel, I am back in the USA for two weeks before heading to Asia for three weeks. The IBR Jesus Group has wrapped up its work with long, careful discussion of historical method and Jesus studies, as well as a careful look at some key resurrection accounts.

The IBR Jesus Project started filming work today. We worked on the Cleansing of the Temple at the Southern Steps and the Last Supper at a home designed to recreate the scene in Ein Kerem. This is the traditional locale of where Mary met Elizabeth as well as the traditional home of John the Baptist when he was growing up. A museum to recreate the feel of biblical life exists there.
