Jesus of History

God became flesh, and went among the Jews, for they were His Chosen. But their leaders rejected Him, in favor of their worship of mammon. They had Him killed, and brought upon their people a horrible curse. Christ then chose the 'next most favored' nation -- WESTERN MAN, and bestowed His favor upon him. Unlike the Jews, Western Man embraced Jesus Christ, and gradually triumphed, under His providence. This isn't the Jesus butchered by Marxist scholars, or by politically correct churchmen, or ignorant Biblicists, who hide from reality, behind their literal interpretations of Scripture. No............this is the TRIUMPHANT, CONQUERING CHRIST, leading the charge, at the front of His thundering army -- an army of holy, Western warriors. This is The Jesus Christ of History.

There's nothing 'historical' about this conception of Jesus.

It's theology in story-form, and that story is one of Jesus leading His New Elect Nation to victory. One can't know this story without studying history. That makes it historical.

Actually, we rejected him because he wasn't the messiah.

That's exactly right. :peace He wasn't. He was the Real Thing, unlike the Messiah (the Antichrist), which is soon to emerge and try to enslave the world.

Your understanding of 1st century Israel/Judaism is woefully lacking.
