The Historical Jesus

Selina O’Grady of the BBC has written a book “And man Created God”.  Basically it is about the historical Jesus and how that lowly Jewish prophet became a god.  You can tell by those few sentences that of course it a secular (i.e. atheistic) view of Jesus but having known a few of them thanks to growing up in NYC, I can tell you that it is also a popular Orthodox Jewish view:  a good Jewish scholar his adherents made into a cult or should I say that Paul that Jewish zealot made his rabbi into god.  I do think that the reviewer points out an important flaw in the last sentence of his review:  and how did that crazy Paul manage to pull it off?  As the Greeks says, “That is the mystery”.Image
