NPR : historical Jesus

NPR's Fresh Air interviewed John Dominic Crossan today. Crossan is one of the leading scholars of the "historical Jesus" and has a new book out about Paul. He has some interesting things to say; most provocative are his thoughts on the Second Coming. Does a Christian's belief in the Rapture reflect an admission that the peaceful Jesus is a failure? That for God to really "win" he has to destroy--violently--the wicked? Just as interesting are Crossan's thoughts on his own religious beliefs.
