How on Earth did Jesus become a God?

I’m really excited! In October we’ve invited Professor Larry Hurtado, Professor of New Testament Language, Literature and Theology at New College, the University of Edinburgh, to give a lecture on the title “How on Earth did Jesus become a God?”

Prof. Hurtado taught one of my M.Th. in Ministry modules while I was at New College, and he was excellent. He made the subject come alive, and his knowledge of the New Testament was incredible. Someone should make him a Profess… oh! wow! that was quick.

I’ve bought his latest book, Lord Jesus Christ and look forward to finding the time to read all 700+ pages.
