You be the judge!
Did Jesus really command his followers to “eat his body and drink his blood,” even symbolically? In my book, The Jesus Dynasty, I challenge that assumption historically. Here is a typical “refutation” of this view, by an evangelical Christian, the “Bible Answer Man,” who is no doubt sincere, completely butchers my position.
I might add here that I am more of a “Bible Question Man,” than a Bible Answer kind of guy. Like a good professor, I try to pose good question and clarify presupposition, rather than spout of dogmas and “truth.” However, I do believe that my 40 year Quest for the Historical Jesus had yielded some good results–and I trust, they are at least, in the “direction of the Truth,” as I often say. I don’t trust those who say they have “arrived.” And so, I guess I can classify myself proudly and happily as “ever learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth.”
