The Quest for the Historical Jesus or Was Jesus Divine... Get a New Theory

Every year around Easter time the main-line press (both broadcast and print) run numerous stories on Jesus Christ. The trend of late is to cast doubt on traditional understandings of the person of Christ. Whatever? I'm not going to debate any of these issues today, but I would like to point out that these issues are nothing new.

I was informed that last week on "Dateline NBC" there was an interview with an author who does not believe that Jesus was divine. So What? Lots of people don't think that Jesus was divine... they're called Jews and Muslims. Actually the Bible is full of people who don't think Jesus was God. They killed him, remember? So I say, "Get over yourself and at least come up with a theory that is newer than two thousand years."

A new book that has been published recently by a Catholic suggests that modern definitions of Christ have missed the mark entirely of who and what Jesus did and would do if he lived today.

Apperently Jesus would indeed drive and SUV.

And apparently this whole "Gospel of Judas" is a new thing, as if nobody had ever heard of the gnostics until just recently...
