"Among the many Westar seminars and projects, the best-known is the Jesus Seminar. The Jesus Seminar, with more than two hundred participating scholars, has attempted to distinguish fact from fiction in the words and deeds ascribed to Jesus in the gospels. Westar's collaborative scholarly research also includes the Paul Seminar, which is investigating the letters attributed to Paul, and a Canon Seminar, which is reviewing the books assigned to the New Testament. A Creeds Seminar and an Acts Seminar are scheduled to begin deliberations in 1999."
