Jesus and the Boys–Brothers, Apostles, and a “Band of Brothers”–Sorting it all Out!

This lecture focuses on Jesus and his “band of brothers,” whether members of his own family or apostles or both. Sorting it all out is quite a challenge. I had uploaded a private camera version of this lecture before but this one has the slides–they are not the best quality but better than nothing. I am “resurrecting” some of these older lectures because they not only capture the times–but also cover materials that I have not touched upon in many years. This one was done in 2006 at the Austin, TX Biblical Archaeology Seminar.. All the handouts and references are now found at Just do a search for “Jesus Family” “Beloved Disciple” and download Prof. Andrews Sills, free here: “The Apostles and Brothers of Jesus.”
