These pages are an official gateway to the research of the Jesus Seminar of the Westar Institute

Seminar has become a lightning rod for international debate about the "historical Jesus"--that is,
the real facts about the person to whom various Christian gospels refer. The Seminar's on-going
project has been to evaluate the historical significance of every shred of evidence about Jesus
from antiquity (about 30-200 CE). Over the past dozen years more than one hundred scholars
from North America & beyond have participated in its semi-annual meetings.
