Christianity found its first footholds in a Greco-Roman world that was fascinated by the mysteries of the deities. In that context, the Apostle Paul proclaimed a very different form of divine mystery.

This illustrated lecture will offer an overview of typical forms of devotion to the mystery deities and illustrate central tenets in Paul’s proclamation of the mystery of God.

Dr. Bruce Longenecker is W.W. Melton Chair of Religion and Professor of Early Christianity at Baylor University, and has studied early Christianity for the past 30 years. He has written or edited over twenty books with the support of his wife Fiona Bond, the director of Creative Waco.

This lecture is part of our 2018 Summer Evening Public Lecture Series.

Dr. Longenecker will be teaching the class “Early Christianity in the Greco-Roman World” from July 30 – August 3, 2018 as part of our 2018 Summer Programs. Learn more at
