Interesting approach to refuting Jesus as part of the Trinity.
The article is titled 'John Dominic Crossan's 'blasphemous' portrait of Jesus'
This is a quote from the article regarding the 'historical Jesus'.
"There's good news and bad news from the historical Jesus. The good news: God says Caesar sucks. The bad news: God says Caesar is us."
Crossan says Jesus was an exploited "peasant with an attitude" who didn't perform many miracles, physically rise from the dead or die as punishment for humanity's sins.
Jesus was extraordinary because of how he lived, not died, says Crossan, one of the world's top scholars on the "historical Jesus," a field in which academics use historical evidence to reconstruct Jesus in his first-century setting.
This approach may have a better chance of getting through people that have some doubt, rather than the mystical Jesus approach, IMHO.
