On May 30, First Things hosted a reception and discussion of Jesus Becoming Jesus: A Theological Interpretation of the Synoptic Gospels, by Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM Cap, with First Things editor R. R. Reno. Weinandy describes the book as “an interpretation of the Gospels that brings to the fore the theological significance of God’s revelation that is contained within the Old Testament.”
Reverend Thomas G. Weinandy, OFM Cap is a priest and leading scholar in the Roman Catholic Church. He is a prolific writer of both academic and popular works, though he has spent most of his Capuchin priestly life as a teacher. He has taught at various Catholic universities in the United States and for twelve years lectured on history and doctrine on the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford. Upon his return to the United States, he was executive director for the Secretariat of Doctrine at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
