    DescriptionThese are the topics and questions that the students mentioned in class and/or sent to me via email, that seemed worth pursuing in the podcast:

    What is it like to dive so deeply into research about Pilate, Caiaphas, etc. as a NT scholar? We noted in class discussions that few New Testament scholars research these key historical figures in their own right in the way that you have, and so the students were very interested to hear more about what that has been like, and how doing so has had an impact on your work on Jesus.
    John the Baptist: the students were fascinated by the idea that some thought John was the messiah, and that he may have been a more influential (and somewhat or perhaps significantly different) figure than we would suspect based on the NT accounts.
