Dr. Ben Witherington III is a well-known lecturer across the country concerning the recent discovery of the "James Ossuary," an archaeological find that is thought to contain the remains of the Brother of Jesus, James. Witherington is to speak on the "Mind of Christ" on Friday, September 26, during the 10:00 a.m. Chapel service. Dr. Witherington is also professor of New Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary, and has authored more than 20 theological and biblical books and commentaries. Along with Hershel Shanks, Dr. Witherington has co-authored The Brother of Jesus: The Dramatic Story and Meaning of the First Archaeological Link to Jesus and His Family (Harper San Francisco, 2003).
He will be on campus all day Friday lecturing on The Historical Jesus at 9:00 a.m., The Historical Paul at 11:00 a.m., and The Historical James & His Ossuary at 1:00 p.m. All lectures will take place in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel.
For further information about Dr. Witherington and his studies, an article in the South Bend Tribune will be published in the "Faith" section this Thursday.
