Yeshua of Nazareth (a.k.a. Jesus Christ)

Menu

Were events in Jesus' life copied
from other saviors/god-men/heroes?

Sponsored link.


Overview:

There are not many religious topics that are more controversial than that covered in this section.

bulletMost conservative Christians believe that God inspired the authors of the Bible to write material that is inerrant -- without error. Thus the Gospels and other books in the Christian Scriptures (New Testament) are completely accurate in their description of Jesus as Lord and Savior, 100% God and 100% human.
 
bulletMost progressive Christians believe that much material in the Christian Scriptures is actually folklore -- myths that grew up around the memory of Jesus during the 40 to 70 years between his execution and the writing of the Gospels. During that interval, stories about Jesus' magical powers, his supernatural origins, etc. accumulated to produce a mixture of Yeshua, the itinerate teacher / native healer and Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior.
