Thinking Religion: Our Quest For A Historical Jesus


Prof. Thomas Whitley and Sam Harrelson attempt to bring some thoughtfulness to the discussion of religion again this week with a discussion of Obama’s views of Christianity, Buddhist concepts, Mary Magdalene, and the Historical Jesus.

This Week’s Topics

  • Is Obama working on his legacy image with remarks on religion?
  • Southern Baptists and Roman Catholics join together… good or bad?
  • Does exposure to Buddhist concepts make you more “prosocial” and less likely to be prejudiced towards others?
  • Finding Mary Magdalene: How close were Jesus and Mary?
  • What are “Facts” when religion is concerned?
  • Who Was Jesus and Why Did He Get Crucified?
