Jesus Project(s)

There's been a bit of discussion of the Jesus Project on the blogs and articles on Bible and Interpretation, including one by me (vaguely propagandist but who cares?). Sadly, I wasn't able to attend the big meeting so here are my suggestions for ways in which the Jesus Project can develop:

Jesus Projects and a Different Kind of Minimalism (Perhaps)

Here's where the historical and scientific-minded among them are eventually, inexorably, headed:

I thought we had had experts in Aramaic on the job for many years with little avail.

Maybe an expert in the writings attributed to Josephus who is prepared to read between the lines with some reverse engineering would be more revealing. There are not many, if any, such experts around. There are only memory men who have gained their Ph.Ds in Sunday school with their litaralistic regurgitations - just about the whole lot of them. The only person I have come across who comes anywhere near the truth about Josephus' writings is Robert Eisenman, and I suspect even he is somewhat hampered by being Jewish.

So who is the "great man" in the writings attributed to Josephus, if not Judas coming as he does just before the so-called testimonium to Jesus? Doesn't he stick-out like a sore thumb?

James,

From henceforth you shall be known as:

"Guido, the prophet of an Aramaic approach to the Gospels standing before the guild of the only unbiased, genuinely objective, and truly scientific Jesus scholars of the world".

Does anyone out here think that the Jesus Project is going to be any less ideologically driven than the Jesus Seminar? Not the same agendas, but ideologically driven all the same!

Yep, you won't find me disagreeing with ideology throughout the discipline!
