Dr. Bruce Chilton

In part two Bruce Chilton, Bernard Iddings Professor of Religion at Bard College (New York), continues his conversation with David Capes about elements of his book, Resurrection Logic: How Jesus’ First Followers Believed God Raised Him from the Dead (Baylor University Press, 2019).  How does the resurrection of Jesus compare with ancient myths about the dying and rising gods?  What does Paul say about what it means to be human?  How does the Jesus’ resurrection call forth a new humanity and a new creation?

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas.  It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College.  The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.

The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers.  For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.

These podcasts as well as the Lanier library and the Stone Chapel are generously underwritten by Mark and Becky Lanier and the Lanier Theological Library Foundation.  If you have questions or comments, please be in touch: Email david.capes@lanierlibrary.org
