Since posting the information about the EHCC, I’ve enjoyed responses from fellow “members” of the “club” thus far. Jack Levison wants to make it clear that he doesn’t drink whiskey (or . . . at least, not very much). Richard Bauckham, who wasn’t at the famous dinner described, affirmed, nevertheless, that he’s relying on the eyewitnesses! Capes and Newman join me in fondly confirming the event (Deut 19:15).
James Davila added his own brief posting about his involvement in the Divine Mediators Group and the EHCC and the consequences here, which include an undergraduate course on divine mediators and then the 1998 conference hosted at St. Andrews on “The Historical Origins of the Worship of Jesus.” Papers from that conference were later published: The Jewish Roots of Christological Monotheism, eds. Carey C. Newman, James R. Davila & Gladys S. Lewish (Leiden: Brill, 1999).
