I have compiled the ten posts reviewing Raphael Lataster’s Questioning the Historicity of Jesus into a single PDF file and made it available to anyone interested through Dropbox.
I am looking forward to reviewing next, engaging in similar depth, M. David Litwa’s How the Gospels Became History: Jesus and Mediterranean Myths.
There are several other works in my “to do” basket. One task at a time.
The following two tabs change content below.

Great work Neil. You may be interested in the discussion on mythicism with both Robert M Price and Joe Atwill. Please take this as a goodwill gesture even though I think we agree to disagree on my view, there was indeed at the turn of BCE/AD a formidable, extensive and enduring threat to Roman hegemony by the Jewish religion from which it is reasonable to allow the hypothesis of Roman provenance of the Gospels.
Like a believer giving a bible to an atheist as a goodwill gesture!! 😉
Litwa is interviewed about his book at some length on the New Books Network Biblical studies podcast 19 August.

Please consider an article on Adamczewski’s 2014 commentary on Mark:

It will be a while before I do that. I have certain critical difficulties with Adamczewski’s work.
