Homebrewed Christianity Presents:
The Great Debacle:
Did God Kill Jesus? OR Did Jesus Kill God?
[Neither a debate nor a conversation]
with Tony Jones & Peter Rollins
In this most momentous of debacles, two intellectuals will engage in a public display of online streaming rhetoric. Their nimble wit and snarky asides will have viewers pulled back and forth as they wrestle with the meaning of the cross.
- Why did Jesus die?
- Did God kill Jesus?
- Did Jesus Kill God?
- Did all meaning die on the cross?
- Was meaninglessness embraced on the cross?
These questions and more shall be explored as Tony Jones and Peter Rollins engage in #TheGreatDebacle. Tripp Fuller will moderate and likely explain how they should really just agree with him.
**We will email you the link on the morning of the event.**

He is ABD for his PHD in Philosophy of Religion and Theology at Claremont Graduate School and is busy writing what is sure to be his Mom's favorite book on Jesus - The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Jesus: Liar, Lunatic, Lord or just freaking Awesome.
Peter Rollins and Tony Jones
On Black Saturday Tony Jones and myself will go head to head in an online discussion concerning the significance of the Crucifixion. This will be a theological tussle touching on whether the Crucifixion can be understood within the general framework of theodicy and orthodoxy, or whether it signals the destruction of all such projects, proclaiming the end of religion itself and all overarching frames of meaning.
