WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 21, 2023)—The BAS Scholars Series continues Wednesday, December 6 at 8 pm Eastern with the live, online presentation of The Life of Jesus Written in Stone: The Earliest Commemorative Churches in Roman Palestine by Dr. Jordan Ryan.

Ryan is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Wheaton College. He is also on staff with the Tel Shimron excavations, where he leads research on the Roman period.

Join Prof. Ryan for his compelling talk on the archaeology and architecture of Christianity’s first commemorative churches, and the narratives and traditions about the life of Jesus that quickly attached themselves to them in late antiquity.
