the Jesus of history

jesus-pic1I’m still blogging over at Blue Jean Gospel about the unaltered, unadulterated, and unchanging Jesus—where I am drawing some clearer distinctions between the timeless Jesus presented in the scriptures and the pretend one we here about much too often. 

So these liberals say historical research can’t possibly discover the Jesus of faith, because the Jesus of faith is not rooted in history. He’s merely a symbol. But listen: Jesus is not a symbol of anything unless he’s rooted in history. The Nicene Creed doesn’t say, “We wish these things were true.” It says, “Jesus Christ was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and the third day he rose again from the dead,’ and it goes on from there (Greg Boyd).

There is much to be said about the Jesus of history.
