9780060674137: Jesus the Magician

Professor Smith compares in detail the evidence about Jesus recorded in the Gospel accounts with the evidence about ancient magicians preserved in magical papyri. Giving full consideration to all existing evidence, Smith offers convincing, detailed answer to such questions as: What did the people of the time mean by "magician"? What was the nature of magic? What facts lead to the conclusion that Jesus practiced this art? He also marshals an amazing array of data from collateral sources to describe what was said of Jesus by "outsiders," those observers of his life and ministry who were not necessarily disciples or believers. Jesus The Magician strips away the cultural veneer surrounding Christianity since the days of Constantine and confronts Christians with the flesh-and-blood person of their ultimately enigmatic Savior.
