“By the time the gospels were being written, Paul had already begun to transform the story of Jesus into something altogether new and extraordinary, and some of his version influenced what the gospel writers put in theirs”.
And so CCB and Holy Redeemer Streatham Vale are co-hosting an evening with leading New Testament scholar David Wenham to consider the issue. You can find out the details here. It’s on Sunday 9th May and will happen in place of the evening service.
Dr David Wenham is Vice Principal of Trinity College, Bristol, and is also chairman of the New Testament Group of the Tyndale Fellowship. He is a leading scholar on the relationship between Paul and Jesus. After studying theology in Cambridge and Manchester University, he taught New Testament in India and then at Wycliffe Hall and the University of Oxford for 24 years. He’s a really clear and engaging speaker and it’ll be a joy to welcome him to this part of south London.
