In the Beginning

What are the roots of Christianity?

(April 7, 2013)

This session introduced the series and explored the ancient philosophical and religious traditions outside of Judaism that influenced early Christian doctrine and practice, including the Roman mysteries, Persian Zoroastrianism, Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics. Participants were asked to discuss the degree to which these other influences may have helped shape Christian ideas about reason and faith. For more, please see the Things Not Seen Week 1 Outline.
