Event Description:
The Infancy Gospel of James is an early Christian text from the middle of the 2nd Century (ca. 140-170) that explores the conception, the birth and life of Mary up through the birth of her son, Jesus. Dr. Allen, who currently teaches courses on ancient Near Eastern history and religion, Bible and early Christian history and biblical interpretation at the UA King Fahd Center for Middle Eastern Studies, will read through this ancient text in its entirety and explore how early Christians built portions of Mary’s life story using passages from the New Testament Gospels and borrowing from various Old Testament stories. Many Christmas traditions not found in the Bible will also be explained through this ancient gospel.
