My friend Ernie has again made some outstanding statements about Jesus. the following is from his latest post at his blog, LRC . Ernie was discussing how the early church "marketed" Jesus for the rest of the known world at that time. It began with Constantine and continued with all the rest of the church councils since.
">Jesus was made into a god- second person of a created trinity.
>He was given traits of previous gods such as virgin birth and resurrection
>Epiphanies were created that were larger than life
>Miracles were developed to show supra-human powers, etc."
Makes good sense to me. These ideas follow the histories which I have researched over the the past ten years.
