Similary to Bishop's book, the chapters in KILLING JEUS are titled according to time and place i.e. the first chapter is captioned "Bethlehem, Judea March, 5 B.C. Morning" and the final chapter (before the Afterward) is "Jesus' Tomb, Sunday, April 9, A.D. 30, Dawn). There are three books within KILLING JESUS entitled Book I The World of Jesus; Book II Behold the Man; and Book III If You Are the Son of God, Take Yourself off This Cross. There are also a few black-and-white drawings, maps and pictures of famous portraits as well as an Index. It is obvious quite a bit of research was done to write this book and, as a Catholic, I appreciate the fact that Bill O'Reilley, also a Catholic, was the principal author.
If I have any heartburn at all about this book is that Mary Magdalene is again erroneously identified as a prostitute (as she was in Joyce Meyer's book APPROVAL ADDICTION:OVERCOMING YOUR NEED TO PLEASE EVERYONE). In fact, as noted in an issue of U.S.Read more ›
Every history book in the world is consistent as to when the gospels were written: Mark = no earlier than 70AD; Matthew = no earlier than 85AD; Luke = no earlier than 85AD; John = no earlier than 95AD.
Though we don't know when the gospels were written, we know they could not have been written before these times as each of the gospels mentions historical events which had not happened until these dates. For example, the Gospel of Mark could not possibly--barring the paranormal--been written before 70AD because it speaks of the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem in past tense, an event which occurred in 70AD.
That O'Reilly claims to be an authority on the history of the gospels and does not know the order in which they were written tells one he has only read the gospels. He has never read the history books.
There are scores of this kind of historical vs. biblical inaccuracies in `Killing Jesus'. O'Reilly claims the Gospel of John was written by the disciple John who walked by Christ's side. According to the gospel he is correct. John describes himself in the first line of his gospel as `the disciple who Jesus loved.' Yet, as a matter of fact, O'Reilly is wrong.
The gospels place Jesus' death prox 30AD (his ministry beginning in the 14th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar or 28AD).Read more ›
A pity more research was not done into Mary Magdalene , the authors continue to foster the belief that the 3 different women called Mary are the same person - Mary Magdalene , Mary the prostitute and Mary the servant ,a myth that has been encouraged by the church as a means of demeaning women and diminishing their roles in the early church ,wake up gentlemen ,Mary Magdalene was one of the most important people in the early church ,this myth ( of her been a prostitute ) has been used to suppress women and confine their roles to that of mere helpers
The cover of "Killing Jesus " says " The story of Jesus crucifixion as its never been told before " but Thomas Jefferson wrote a similar summary of the life of Jesus with most of the miracles stripped out, it is known as " The Jefferson Bible ". Read about it on Wikipedia.
The most surprising idea in this book is at location 2683 were O'Reilly suggests that it was a Jewish custom to examine the body after 3 days after apparent death to check if the body really was dead. Can this really be correct ? I will need to do some research. Perhaps resurrection was so common back in those days that it was important to check, after all Matt 27v52 says, " that the moment after Jesus breathed his last the tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people ", though no one wrote it in their diary. Maybe just so common that they never raised an eye brow ?
In Sources,location 2928, O'Reilly mentions the book, " Will the real Jesus please stand up " which is a debate between William Lane Craig and John Dominic Crossan of the Jesus Seminar.
I'm looking forward to " Killing History, Jesus in the no-spin zone " by Bible Geek, Robert M. Price which is his reply to " Killing Jesus ". It is due September 2014. Price was one of The Jesus seminar team.Read more ›
