Welcome to Westar Institute

Westar Institute — home of the Jesus Seminar — is dedicated to fostering and communicating the results of cutting-edge scholarship on the history and evolution of the Christian tradition, thereby raising the level of public discourse about questions that matter in society and culture.


To kick off our Spring Fundraising campaign, we're talking to some of our members about how and why they've stayed connected to Westar. First, scholar and member Perry Kea shares his thoughts. Watch the video here. You can make a donation here.
