Early Christian Monotheism with James McGrath: Homebrewed Christianity 68

turkeysTraveling for Thanksgiving? Why not spend it with a few turkeys? Tripp and I cut up for a few minutes as usual, with fresh taunting directed toward our lovable rivals over at The Nick and Josh Podcast, then we turn to the topic du jour. This week, we’re visited by James F. McGrath from the popular Exploring Our Matrix, professor of religion at Butler University, and author of The Only True God and The Burial of Jesus. Tripp and James tackle the diversity and complexity of monotheistic beliefs during the first century among Jews and within the upstart Jesus movement. Listenmcgonlytr in on this great conversation with a great blogger and scholar. And Nick, we’re ready to throw down when you are. And by throw down we mean fight…with our fists (forming rocks in a Rock, Paper, Scissors competition)

Sweet podcast. McGrath is sweet and so is that intro. N\J are mildly cool.

Sweet intro and uber awesome conversation with James. Nick is sure to be intimidated by the taunting. He might have to go traveling again. Hopefully you guys won't scare off the new Josh. He is almost cool enough to be a Deacon!

Good to hear we can be a part of your rehab. Did you tell them just how rouge they could be if they became HBC deacons?

shoot and score! James McGrath, my favorite theo-blogger, is on my favorite theo-podcast. This will be the perfect cure for the painful annual t-day trip to the in-law's house. I needed something to cleanse my brain after an afternoon of watching fox news and listening to glowing reviews of Sarah Palin's new book.
