The Jesus Project vs The Jesus Seminar

"The Jesus Project" which began in 2007 is yet another liberal attempt to find the "real" Jesus. It attempts to correct the errors of the old "Jesus Seminar.

For an excellent analysis of both The Jesus Project and The Jesus Seminar from Bruce Chilton, a member of both, see his article "Plus ca change... 'The Jesus Seminar' and 'The Jesus Project."

I wish these critics would be even half as critical of their own assumptions and methods as they are about Jesus and the Gospels! Their entire endeavor is the desperate search for a Jesus who is not like the Jesus to whom the Gospel writers proclaim.
