Jesus revisited...

A few nights ago, I watched an interesting show on TV that debunked a lot of dogmatic ideas about the historical aspect of Jesus' life. It was the first show in a series, and being based on historical evidence, it did challenge familiar assumptions and conventional notions about the whole story of Christianity.

Twelve scholars -New Testament theologians, archaeologists, and historians – contributed to this fresh view on Christianity and gave the viewer full latitude in reconciling their Christian faith with their iconoclastic approach. I welcomed it and the entire show as it made me thinking that with so little hard evidence about the origin of the large and long-lasting religion, that there was plenty of fuel to blow the whole story of Jesus into a powerful myth.
