Great post, Mountn Man.

One thing I would like to add:

If one were trying to dispute the Gospels it would be extremely difficult to overcome the fact that the eyewitness accounts of women were allowed to remain given that women’s testimonies were deemed unreliable and unbelievable at that time. If they were attempting to gain believers by giving fraudulent accounts, that would have been the last thing they’d have done.

I don’t doubt you are correct about the fraudulent Josephus texts....however, that does not make the Resurrectcion untrue.

Why not prove that Mohammed was not risen into the Heavens on a horse? Kill. that sacred cow.

My thought exactly. Our intrepid elites must investigate every single Biblical account of Jesus to the furthest extent that archaeology and science will allow. But Islamic miracles? Oh, that's their culture, we have to be sensitive.

IOW the MSM is trying to attack faith because as long as there is a right and a wrong they can never impose homosexual marriage, outlaw the concepts of mother and father, and just have relative morality.

Big Brother Lovers you, the MSM told us so.

“Naw...It’s a big neo-con / Karl Rove scam to trick the Godbags into supporting Bushitler Rethuglican policies.
Hey...I’m starting to get the hang of these reflexive hare-brained lefty talking points.”

OK, good for you. Now go wash your brain out with peroxide. ;)

and alongside every pro easter movie is some anti-christian or jesus insulting hollyweird production.

Event the History channel attempted to get in on the act with documentaries with left wing preacher types.

"Almost all scholars consider the passage you quote to be a fraudulent insertion into the original text,.."

I learn something new everyday. Thanks!

"If one were to believe the tripe on the History channel: Jesus had brothers"

Since the Gospels themselves tell us that Jesus had both brothers and sisters, I think you can take that one to the bank. The rest of the stuff IS tripe, but it's clear Jesus had siblings. His brother James was the top Christian in Jerusalem until the Jews threw him off the top of a building an killed him.

This is a pointless crock.

The real question is, can the Post and the remainder of the MSM come back from the dead?

Cheers!

Yes, and He is coming back to tank all the lefty wing media outlets who keep asking this nauseating question.

"...Davis believes in the bodily resurrection, though he acknowledges some seemingly contradictory New Testament accounts."

There are seemingly contradictory accounts of what happened in the presidential motorcade in Dallas in November 1963, too.

---But that doesn't mean John Kennedy wasn't shot dead.

...you beat me to the punch with the redacted Josephus material...that said, in no way does it detract from the truth...as was mentioned, people are not eager to die for nothing but metaphors...

Yes, certainly that fraud would have been necessary, because none of the other numerous accounts or external historical evidence would have been enough to convince anyone. /s
