    • Ed , surly a man of your education could have recommended something more intelligent that Maccoby’s latest. Sandmel is a better choice to take the opposing position . Maccoby has serious flaws in this book .

      1.he says that Jesus was a Pharisee . not true . Jesus shared the Phariseen paradigm of an afterlife as opposed to the Sadducees. but he was not one of them . Hnas Kung in his amazing work ”Judaism ” puts Jesus in 2 categories –love of God , love of man .

      2.Paul was not a Pharisee. another boo-boo. there would be no way he could have gotten letters from the high priest to persecute the early Messianic Jewish believers in Jesus , if he was not a Pharisee.

      3. The Jews saw nothing wrong with Jesus ministry ? what ? totally out of context . though the creed says ”he was crucified under Pontius Pilate”, as an echo of what Roman historian Tacitus states ..someone had to deliver him up to Pontius Pilate.

      the whole idea that Paul made up Christianity is the same old rant . Neitzche fell for it and so did Shaw. and Paul was no myth maker or syncretist. he did use the language of the day depending on who he was talking to. but the message was always the same . blood sacrifice of messiah for sin .

      now –this blood sacrificial motif was nothing new in Judaism . it was around with animals and became a theme in the intertestamental era during the non violent Maccabeen revolt in 135 A. D. as laid out in the 2nd and 4th book of Maccabees , where the seven sons and the old priest viewed themselves as human sacrifices for the sins of the people Israel when the temple was occupied by the Syrians . and that is how Christ viewed himself , and the Apostles viewed him when under Roman occupation . this is something that Maccoby does not bring up . all this was way before Paul was even converted.

      and .. there were a lot of texts that said the same thing that Paul had nothing to do with . This is what the early Christians that knew Jesus stood for , and publicly died for , as well as him being the SON of God . ..instead of Caesar being the Son of God .

      no mythology even matches the claims of the early Christians . not Prometheus, Osiris, nor Midthras. close but no cigar. none of this proves it is true . but it does prove that it is utterly unique. and that Paul did not make it up .
