Personal story segment -- -- killing Jesus a book arrived in the marketplace today heralded.
By a full page ad in the New York Times already I'm getting mail telling me I'm going to hell.
Which I thought was apparent why bother to tell me.
Anyway we anticipate much reaction to the book was out to men who have -- -- Jesus Fox's contributor father John -- And pastor Robert Jefferson a Baptist minister and author of the book.
How can I know.
Answers to -- seven most important.
Questions are -- -- -- getting heat from evangelicals to begin with you -- basic thesis is I'm going to -- because I don't proclaim Jesus to be the messiah.
In the pages I don't I don't say yeah okay and you say.
People have to understand this is not a theological -- it's -- historical book but what you do and what's -- -- -- secularist crazy bill.
-- you like Jesus tell the truth about himself and you don't sugarcoat the fact that he claimed to be god.
And that he wasn't just running around telling people to turn the other cheek the reason he caught himself crucified -- because he claimed to be god.
And that was side -- -- -- federal Roman and he was confrontational about it at particularly -- -- -- that -- let the reader decide and evangelicals ought to love this book because you don't follow the same secular net.
That Jesus was a good guy who never claimed to be god that's just not historically accurate.
And as far as the secular -- are concerned.
What we're seeing now is not an attack on Jesus -- that there may be I mean you lead the -- forces in America may start that but they haven't yet.
It's marquis stuff like added that there.
-- -- Because they don't want people to read the book.
You know the anti Christian people don't want people's greed killing Jesus I think that's what -- -- It's just beginning what's going to happen is that they're going to be people.
Who are going to be speaking -- from the basically reiterating in nineteenth century late eighteen century.
-- viewpoint of a reconsideration of the historical Jesus in which they took cook but they took out.
Any any source that actually believed in Jesus as messiah and son of god as.
Not trustworthy and that began to look at.
Jesus of Nazareth without any possibility that he was actually we once and he would have people writing and there -- major publication saying.
You know -- -- got it totally wrong.
Why because he actually believes that Matthew Mark Luke and John were written by either the apostles are people very close the apostles.
People actually hadn't experienced -- -- Jesus I mean John for example was written by the apostle that the -- on the island of patents.
In an and that's it -- historic fact it's document -- -- 1818100.
Years after the fact.
Too bright people got very Smart and -- actually.
These gospels were not written written by anybody but -- -- in the new America will we don't even bother with that it is -- art and I'm under the article.
We -- unlike the other books there -- footnotes and everything is -- you see what we -- -- comes from go ahead.
Pastor bill your book fits a bigger narrative you've been telling for a long time and that is that secularist are out to destroy christianity.
Because it's the last barrier between GM and the secular on moral society where they want to create.
How do you destroy christianity you go after the credibility of the founder Jesus Christ they have to be careful though because Jesus so well I do so well -- lot.
So what they do -- it's this insidious attack that would Jesus was in mid -- and would never claimed to be god that was something that was added on.
Many years afterwards you blow that secular.
Yeah well into an end and we did it by using Roman history yes because the discourse between pilot.
And Jesus was well documented and Jesus said to pilot after -- had to use the son of god he goes you -- it.
And saying yes so that's where we use it but we never pastor.
Use the word Christ in the book did you guys understood we noticed that we just Christ connotes messiah so do -- -- and I never you we use the mastery though how treating it.
-- I -- to argue with you.
Yeah I know -- I don't know why did I don't know what it is about Gillette stops went on or off the air I went to argue with -- and quite honestly I was I was thinking -- how can I get this guy how -- -- back.
And -- you know it's not exactly as I would write it.
But it is -- as you would -- it and you learn anything I learned a lot.
So yeah Jesus god that I haven't -- Jesus guy you've got and you -- a lot I learned a lot it was a it was there was heavy focus on the Roman.
Element -- -- and -- -- absolutely I think that's something new and something different not something I would have focused on -- of the new and different learn from that.
And you where you did a good job and a good service to the people of god into.
Into the society good what you learn anything I did Allen say something to make my evangelical.
Friends who are watching this program feel great about this book in the very last chapter you -- CS Lewis and mere christianity.
And Lewis said given the fact that Jesus claimed to be god means he was either a liar a lunatic or -- And actor reading killing Jesus readers can decide may yet get this guy that can accept -- claimed they can reject -- priority injected but no intelligent person can afford to ignore his claims and the depth is there an -- -- and I gotta -- I appreciate you guys read a book -- brought together anyway I know I was very.
-- all right guys thank you --
