[left][font=Arial]How would you respond to the charges made on the website below??? Thanks and God Bless.[/font][/left]
*“Now, there was about this time, Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man, for he was a doer of wonderful works; a teacher of such men as received the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was the Christ; and when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day, as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him; and the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.” *(Antiquities XVIII 63f)
The following quote is from the homepage:"
To have Christian “scholars” write on the history of Christianity and the biblical Jews is comparable to having Soviet Communists write on the Russian revolution and their form of socialism. What follows is the work of scholars without faith. "
Does anyone else see a tinge of hypocrisy in the statement??? Please correct me if I am wrong. I strongly doubt the author would want secular history written by Christains as secular writers would be biased by his analogy. Thanks and God Bless.
