Stephen Fry on God | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Stephen Fry on God

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided to report this because as of today, YouTube has disabled comments on this video. I discovered that when I went to reply to a comment left by Brother JJ Hallen, which was, "Hey mike you have an informative show but you dont know the truth until you know the ultimate truth which is Jesus Christ is Lord and God is real brother, the KJV bible is the true word of God, for someone who knows how corrupt things are in this world and you also arent afraid to criticize israel i cant believe you havent even opened up a bible and read it to compare it to this world and your life, you cant save yourself and when you pass away its not like you probably think that you just rot in...",P.Had YouTube not disabled comments, this would have been my reply.

So, in your view, all of science is wrong, all of geology is wrong, all of paleontology is wrong, all of archaeology is wrong, all of physics is wrong, but a bunch of Bronze Age goat herders got it all right! That being said, I am convinced there was an historical person who is the foundation for the legend of Jesus, but the story has been "modified" and rather severely over the last 20 centuries to suit various political and economic agendas. Even his name got changed along the way, as the English version of "Yeshua" is "Joshua." The name "Jesus" is the result of a less-than-perfect translation from Aramaic into Greek, followed by a less-than-perfect translation from Greek into Latin. Much of the popular image of Jesus, including his divinity, was the creation of the Council of Nicea in 325 AD, more than two centuries after he died; two centuries without benefit of modern information preservation, when the story was passed by word of mouth with everyone embellishing the tale as they went along. The historical "Joshua" was not the son of a Carpenter, but heir to the House of David (the Bible even has his lineage) who married the princess of the House of Benjamin at Canaa to form a dynastic paring that gave Joshua a legitimate claim to the throne of Judea superceding the installed Roman puppet Herod. It was for that challenge to Rome's authority that Joshua was crucified.
