-Easter Attacks on Christianity in the Media

by Dr. D ~ April 10th, 2012

Jesus Resurrection 1778

Its Easter season which means it’s time to seriously attack Christianity in the media.  Magazine articles, documentaries on TV, books, pseudo research into Christian origins and the Bible. All stacked heavily against traditional teachings about Jesus and the origins of Christianity. Each with a variety of professors supposedly exposing the real Christian origins as myths coming down to us from pagan traditions. Just to make it ‘fair’, they always throw in a couple of uneducated preachers to support the Bible and then add some liberal Bishops that support the ‘re-interpretation’ of historical Christianity.

First it was the new ‘patio Tomb’ by James Tabor and Simcha Jacobovici who brought us the supposed ‘Jesus Family Tomb’ a couple of years ago. The Patio Tomb supposedly supports Christian teaching of the resurrection but according to Tabor it is nothing like what the New Testament teaches. These are the same two which ‘proved’ Jesus was married and had a family with Mary Magdalene because of some names they found on a ossuary. Of course they rush their research to make the deadlines in printing their book and finishing their documentary for the Easter season and then complain about scholarly reviews that show up on websites.

Next a book by Thomas de Wesselow: "The Sign: The Shroud of Turin and the Secret of the Resurrection." Who claims that Jesus never appeared to the Apostles but that it was the sight of the burial shroud after the crucifixion that convinced the apostles to believe that Jesus came back to life. Therefore, the resurrection as recorded in the Gospels is nothing but an illusion. Wesselow’s theory is all conjecture with no real historical evidence to support it. He would have you believe that the Apostles spent their lives preaching a lie and went to their deaths all because of an image on a cloth? Ridiculous!

Finally, on the CNN Belief Blog there is a debate on whether Jesus was even a real person or only a myth: The Jesus debate: Man vs. myth

You know that your side is in trouble when the strongest argument for Jesus is made by an agnostic anti-Christian professor. Yet the CNN debate is as close as you can get to a fair hearing in today’s secular media.

Can you just imagine the outcry if Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran received similar attacks during Ramadan? Easter is the holiest time of the year for Christians and yet every year at this time we are subjected to anti-Christian propaganda in the form of ‘new’ discoveries that turn out later to be far different than originally presented after all the facts are in.

If you really want to know the facts surrounding the resurrection of Jesus, here is one of the best short and concise articles I have ever found on the issue:
