Dr. Larry Hurtado’s New Blog

Is Tom Wright next?

Dr. Hurtado writes,

This blog site is a space where I offer comments, analysis, and something of my own contributions to the study of earliest Christianity.  I’ll interact with the treatment of early Christianity in the work of other scholars, and also in the popular media when appropriate.  I’m a scholar of the New Testament and Christian origins, with posts in higher education since 1975.  I’ve been in my current post, Professor of New Testament Language, Literature & Theology (University of Edinburgh) since 1996.  My own research over the decades has focused mainly on the origins and development of “devotion to Jesus” in earliest Christianity, and also on textual criticism and the study of earliest Christian manuscripts as informative artefacts of ancient Christianity.  For more about my own work, consult my University staff page.
