Unoriginal Christ.
So I strolled across a debate the other day between good ole Dan Barker and a dude named James White. I was struck by one part of the debate in which Dan is comparing the story of Jesus to The Odyssey. His opponent countered with a convincing round.
White argued that the comparison of Jesus to all of the old pagan religions and myths wasn't a strong argument because most scholars agree that different interpretations of the original texts were done to twist the story to parallel Jesus' tale. He went on to say that this type if argument was shot down decades ago and the internet had brought about a new resurgence of this tactic.
I would hate to be giving a weak argument unknowingly if I can help it.
Can anyone here direct me to a non biased source for a good honest take on the comparison of Jesus to the earlier pagan religions?
