NT Wright: JESUS AND THE IDENTITY OF GOD

From Wright’s lecture:

“Just because Muzak and hard rock exist, that is no reason not to write great music today.  The existence of kitsch does not mean that there is no such thing as great contemporary art.  The existence of the Jesus Seminar does not mean that historical study of Jesus is a waste of time.  If only people had read Ben Meyer’s great book when it was published in 1979, twenty years of nonsense could have been avoided.” 

– cites Ben F. Meyer, The Aims of Jesus (London: SCM Press, 1979)
