Jesus seminar marks 25 years of questions

Since 1985, scholars affiliated with the Jesus Seminar have been questioning the authenticity of sayings attributed to Jesus and whether he saw himself as an end-times prophet.

As the seminar marks its 25th anniversary Oct. 13-16 in Santa Rosa, Calif., it’s Jesus seminar marks 25 years of questions generating far less attention and controversy than in years past, when the media spotlight gave members a platform to reach millions.

Now observers are debating a new question: What difference has the Jesus Seminar made? Once again, the jury is divided.
