[quote=Brian_C]My omission wasn’t accidental. I moderate a couple of forums. Rabbi Jesus An Intimate Biography is a book by Bruce Chilton. I can give a link to Amazon if that helps: amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0385497938/qid=1105924490/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/102-4730768-5717750?v=glance&s=books&n=507846
Anyway, it’s an iteresting book where Chilton (an Anglican Priest) and New Testiment scholar gives his understanding of what the scriptures misunderstood regarding Jesus life and it’s meaning.
The book makes sense but I’m not giving it an endorsement or anything as (being an archaeologist) I realize how much of scholarship is interpretation where things get sketchy.
he endorsement on the back cover from a Catholic news source caught me by surprise as it would seem Chilton’s conclusions are against Church doctrine.
Hmmm, it may well be interesting, but, there are oh so many Catholic writings I want to read, sorry, I’ll get to it in its turn.
