THE GREAT DEBACLE: Did God Kill Jesus OR Did Jesus Kill God?

Homebrewed Christianity Presents:
The Great Debacle: Did God Kill Jesus? OR Did Jesus Kill God?
LIVE ONLINE EVENT: Saturday, April 4th (10:30am – 12:00pm PST)
[Neither a debate nor a conversation] with Tony Jones & Peter Rollins

In this most momentous of debacles, two intellectuals will engage in a public display of online streaming rhetoric. Their nimble wit and snarky asides will have viewers pulled back and forth as they wrestle with the meaning of the cross.

  • Why did Jesus die?
  • Did God kill Jesus?
  • Did Jesus Kill God?
  • Did all meaning die on the cross?
  • Was meaninglessness embraced on the cross?

These questions and more shall be explored as Tony Jones and Peter Rollins engage in #TheGreatDebacle. Tripp Fuller will moderate and likely explain how they should really just agree with him.
