Episode:Setting the Stage: Birth of Jesus, with Eric Cosh

From Symmetry of Soul

We welcome Eric Cosh to this week’s broadcast. To appreciate the backdrop of the time in which Jesus was born, recorded as August 21st in TUB, Eric shares vivid details of The Joshua ben Joseph Project interspersed with studies of pertinent passages from the book. He and David Kantor are producing a stunning archive of high-definition video and photographic resources, filmed in Israel and Jordan, for use by readers of TUB, with an emphasis on the creation of study aids and general reference resources for Part 4, "The Life and Teachings of Jesus."

Eric's background is music and acting, having been a former member of The New Christy Minstrels and the duo of Eric & Errol. He has been involved professionally in film and photography since 1990. He was introduced to TUB in 1972 and he began his journey of studying with other readers when he moved to Oklahoma in 1980. Later moving to Arizona, where he currently resides, he became a Charter member of The Grand Canyon Society. Eric met David Kantor at TUB Snowmass International Conference in 1981 and shortly thereafter they began discussing filming in Israel, with their vision becoming a reality this year.
