Customer Review

Attention drawn by "Amazon" and a history buff as I am, I did not hesitate to make the purchase of this book.
The first chapter of this book, "The Jesus of history and the Christ of faith" left me speechless! Where does the Christ of faith in a written dedicated to the History ???
First, at the outset of this chapter, I have not gone unnoticed the charges against Frédéric Lenoir and especially against his colleague Jacques Duquesne, JOURNALIST as the author Jean Sévillia ...
We first look at the comments of the author Frédéric Lenoir and his book "How Jesus became God." Sévillia Lenoir says that is free to join or not to Christianity but ... "as the plane HISTORY, his assertions are facing an obstacle." Sévillia then presses a priest Bernard Sesboué that meets Lenoir HISTORIAN because there is a field goal: "the history of the faith." Excuse me, sir ... but Sévillia faith is faith, and the history of this faith can be compared to the History with a capital H ...
After Lenoir, go to Duquesne which "claims to slay the" legends told by the Church. "According Sévillia" expeditious tote justification "that challenges ... original sin, etc.etc. Staying on original sin ...
Sévillia is based on the "scholars" (to see), biblical scholars would be better, Pierre Grelot and Charles Perrot. Bell, peremptorily concludes by talking about Duquesne: "I dare to question its authentic Catholic faith" But what has the Catholic Faith in a history book ???
Moreover, beyond Grelot, Perrot, we could also rely on the Jesuit Teilhard de Chardin and his book, "How I believe" and specifically chapter: "Christ évoluteur" written in Beijing of 8-12-1942: "The original sin is not locatable at a time or in a specific place" ...
After original sin, turn to "the Mother of Christ", seen by Duquesne and commented by Sévillia ...
According to "investigation" Duquesne, it appears that Mary could remain a virgin and that Jesus had brothers and sisters ...
Read it think that a EXEGETE as JP Meier author FOUR books entitled: "A Jew Jesus." In the first volume of these four books, Meier discusses the "problem" of the virginal conception of Mary throughout the pages 141 to 144. Finally, it discusses Jesus' brothers and sisters on pages 189-202.
The brothers and sisters of Jesus, Meier concluded, pages 202 and 203: "Leaving aside the faith and teaching of the Church LATER, if asked the historian or exegete to make a judgment the New Testament and patristic texts examined, the most probable view is that Jesus' brothers and sisters were REAL siblings. Thus, Duquesne is not alone in this opinion, reinforced in this by the Roman historian Flavius ​​Josephus who in his Jewish Antiquities evokes "Jacques the Brother of Jesus Christ says" ...
Finally, 224 pages Meier concludes: "A brief glance at the summary that we have just revealed a gap to appear glaring to any reader with some historical sense true history is not limited to the timeline. but there can be no history without chronology which is one of its bases "...
Let's move on the timeline that we book Matthew and Luke in their Gospel "tells" of childhood, texts properly INCOMPATIBLE relative to another. Abridge ...
For my part, I conclude by pointing to Mr Sévillia that on these issues original sin virginity of Mary, Jesus' brothers and sisters: "This is the teaching of the Church that considers historical sources sources that have nothing to do with the HISTORY and exegesis ... "
Mr. Sévillia Speaking of History would have done better to refrain from writing her first chapter in "historically incorrect" on the "Jesus of history and the Christ of faith", subjects that have nothing to do with History with a capital H ... ...
