Speakers include some of the foremost scholars of the historical Jesus and first-century Judaea, including: Martin Goodman, George Brooke, Joan Taylor, Bart Ehrman, Amy-Jill Levine, James Crossley, Philip Davies, Helen Bond, Steve Mason, Adele Reinhartz, James Dunn and Paula Fredriksen, with reflections also on art and the film\'s initial reception. There will also be star ?Mystery Guests? and plenty of opportunity for discussion.
