    Any thoughts on the Jesus Seminar and the conclusions they come to?

    False prophets who deny the diety of Christ and the Word of God.

    Pandering to liberals and pagans without any hope of reaching Bible believing Christians that are truly interested in truth.

    The group starts by "assuming" its own salient points and then bending back on itself with circular arguments.

    An insult to anyone with half a mind much less to those with a fully functioning one.

    In Christ,

    Bob

    The Jesus Seminar has for its purpose to show that the historical Jesus and the Christ of faith are separate characters - that the Gospels and Epistles are not trustworthy, and that Jesus is not who the Gospels say he is.

    This particular seminar (of Robert Funk) has been addressed by numerous Biblical scholars, who, in my humble opinion, have launched quite an extensive and thorough refutation of the Seminar's conclusions.

    Two of these particular scholars are John Meier and N.T. Wright.

    John Meier doesn't seem to be all that different from Funk. The main difference seems to be that he says it doesn't really matter what the real Jesus did. What we believe he did is most important. His argument seems to be a liberal's counter point to Funk's work.

    I just read some stuff by that other guy too.

    Carson are you as liberal as these guys???
