The Speaker

Dr Crispin Fletcher-Louis is the Director of Whymanity: Research and Training (www.whymanity.com) and Visiting Fellow at the University of Gloucestershire. He is an internationally recognized biblical scholar, with an expertise in the historical context of the New Testament and is currently writing a four-volume book on Jesus and his divine identity (www.JesusMonotheism.com).

Teaching is delivered in a conversational, practically-focused format.


Teaching will include:

  • New and profound insights into old favourites (the Prodigal Son, the Lost Son and Lost Coin, the Pharisee and Tax-Collector), and help with others that are neglected or difficult.
  • The parables' subversive offer of a vision for a new temple community in which all believers are (high) priests.
  • The practical implications of Jesus’ teaching strategy and message, especially for the way we teach, lead and imagine the future.

The content will draw on Crispin’s 25+ years of research, his expertise in understanding Jesus in the first century Jewish context and his long-term love of Luke’s Gospel (the topic of his first book).

Parables covered will include:

  • Great Banquet (Luke 14:15–24)
  • Tower Builder and King going to War (Luke 14:25–35)
  • Lost Son and Lost Coin (Luke 15:3–10)
  • Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11–30)s
  • Dishonest Steward (16:1–13)
  • Pharisee and Tax Collector (18:9–14)
  • Barren Fig-Tree (Luke 13:6–9)
