|The Jesus Puzzle: Did Christianity Begin With a Mythical Jesus? Price: $14.50 Write a review | No reviews for this product.|
Why does Paul's divine Christ seem to have no connection to the Gospel Jesus, but closely resembles the many pagan savior gods of the time who lived only in myth?Why, given the spread of Christianity across the Roman Empire in the first century, did only one Christian community compose a story of Jesus' life and death - the Gospel of Mark - while every other Gospel simply copied and reworked the first one?
Why is every detail in the Gospel story of Jesus' trial and crucifixion drawn from passages in the Old Testament?
The answer to these and other questions surrounding the New Testament will come as a shock to those who imagine that the origins of Christianity and the figure of Jesus are securely represented by Christian tradition and the Gospels.
