SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Wofford College religion professor Dr. Byron McCane will be interviewed live at 2:50 p.m. Saturday, March 14, on CNN’s Newsroom Weekend with Fredricka Whitfield in a discussion of the gospel of Judas, the topic of Sunday’s episode of the cable network’s six-part series “Finding Jesus: Faith. Fact. Forgery.”

McCane participated in the series, appearing in five of six of the episodes; the first installment that aired March 1 was the only one in which he does not appear.

The series, which airs at 9 p.m. on Sundays, examines six objects purported to be from the time of Jesus, an area of expertise for McCane, the Albert C. Outler Professor of Religion at Wofford. The producer of the series is Emmy-nominated Hugh Ballentyne.
