Thank you for writing.
I actually discussed the question that you have raised in the comment section of the Skeptical Zone:
- Now let be specific on a few details about Jesus:
A. I do NOT believe that Jesus in 1/3 of the Godhead.
B. I do NOT believe that Jesus in God incarnate.
C. I do not believe that Jesus was conceived through a virgin conception.
D. I do not believe the numerous “miracles” reported about Jesus: embellishment, legendary, theological, natural explanations
E. I do not believe in that Jesus met Moses, etc.
F. I do not believe most of the arresting narratives
G. I do not believe most if not all of the trial accounts
H. I do not believe most of the crucifixion narratives
I. I do not believe the visitation narratives
J. I do not believe the appearance narratives
K. I do not believe the Judas episode
L. I do not believe the martyrdom of the apostles (most) – extensively discussed in Volume 2.
Why do I not believe the above? Well, kindly re-read Justin’s honest review of my text and most important, read my text. The text clearly explains why… And, Volume 2 will further the discussion why.
the reason that this text rejects Jesus’s physical, bodily resurrection is because there is no unequivocal evidence that this historical event occurred.
You wrote: Seems like a fairly low bar.
RESPONSE: Why should anyone accept the resurrection if there is no proof of that purported event?
RESPONSE: Why should anyone accept the resurrection if the resurrection narratives, Acts, 1 Corinthians…are contradictory, embellished works, or works written to fulfill a theological agenda?
RESPONSE: I would be interested to know what you consider to be a “high” bar?
