Speaker: Spen Instone
Spen writes: Margaret Barker has ‘a revolutionary re-reading of the background of the New Testament – original, challenging, and deeply learned’ [Rowan Williams]. She is a former President of the Society for Old Testament Study, and was awarded a Doctorate of Divinity by the Archbishop of Canterbury. We shall be looking at her highly exciting and innovative work, and how she believes that the beliefs of the First Temple influenced the first Christians, including Jesus himself.
Venue: The Abbey House – next to the Abbey
Event hosted by Tewkesbury Abbey Theological Forum
