The Apostle Paul: A Polite Bribe comes to Duke this week

I have talked on a couple of previous occasions about Robert Orlando's film about Paul (The Apostle Paul - A Polite Bribe in New York).  Here's the website:

A Polite Bribe

It includes trailers and lots more information about the film, including excerpts of the featured scholars, including local stars Douglas Campbell and Bart Ehrman.

This week the film comes to Duke.  On Thursday 23 January, at 7.30pm, please come along to the free screening at the Full Frame Theater on the Tobacco Campus (pictured below).

There are also two bonus events.  First, at 6pm, I will be interviewing the director Robert Orlando.  If you can make it for this event, please be there in good time because the event is being recorded and we will close the doors at six.  There will be a 30 minute break between the interview and the film's screening at 7.30.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring director Robert Orlando and participant Douglas Campbell.

This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so please get there early.  Don't worry if you can't make it for for the pre-film interview at 6pm; we are expecting the largest audience for the film screening itself.

Full Frame Theater, Tobacco Campus, Duke University
The timetable looks like this:

6pm: Mark Goodacre interviews Robert Orlando

7.30pm: The Apostle Paul: A Polite Bribe (free screening)

8.50pm: Panel discussion featuring Robert Orlando and Douglas Campbell

If you have any questions, please be in touch.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Paul's looking a bit rough these days!

Amy Jill-Levine said that it was because of Paul that Christianity made it out into the Gentile world. But were some Jews thinking along similar lines before Paul? Were they thinking that Gentiles would also be acceptable to God?
