The prevailing picture of Christian origins does need to be revised… All New Testament scholars are aware of textual material and historical data that cannot easily be reconciled… Some scholars are also aware that the literary and historical bases for the traditional reconstruction are very, very shaky.

The picture itself has not yet budged, however, and will not budge until alternative explanations for the sometimes very curious data available are taken up for forthright discussion and evaluation. I immediately perceived its significance, but put the article aside until more time became available. Now you know why this blog has been so quiet of late.

This series of posts has the following goals: Detering is best known as a Pauline specialist. In the last decade, however, his thought has moved more and more into nontraditional areas. In the Spring of he emailed me a new article in German on his website here proposing that the gnostic Basilides was the author of the Odes of Solomon. Basilides also taught the doctrine hermanh rebirth see Clem.

My eBook Buddhist and Christian Parallels presents hetmann many similarities in teachings and ethics between the two religions. The details of that contact are elusive, but surely they involve Egypt.


Hermann Detering, Falsified Paul: A critique

I believe that seminal event was colossally important for the West and has been greatly underestimated. I maintain that the scenario set forth at the end of my book NazarethGate offers Jesus mythicism a viable path forward. Significant parallels with the Jesus of the gospels are inescapable. I argue that Christianity in fact eetering back to Yeshu as opposed to the invented figure, Jesus of Nazarethwho lived in the early part of the first century BCE.

Detering has not indicated that he ascribes to my theories regarding Yeshu. One should keep in mind that the differences between Buddhism and Christianity are supremely exaggerated by late developments, developments that most scholars falsely view as normative and early. However, when one probes into the earliest strata of these two great religions—before the Christian church councils on the one hand and the various Buddhist councils on the other—then striking resonances in ethics and teaching emerge.

Fundamental similarities jump out—as, for example, that the putative founders of these two great religions were both homeless wanderers. Both even taught the excellence of that radically antisocial mode of life.

The field of comparative religion is old and broad. Until now, however, its investigators have by definition not been New Testament specialists. I believe this is something new and is a significant step forward. The gnostic view of the Exodus 2. Transcendence is foundational to both Buddhism and Christianity 2. In both religions, transcendence hermann expressed through an identical metaphor: Buddhism and Christianity intersect—both historically and religiously—in the Therapeutae described by Philo Judaeus 4.

If the above six points are correct, they arguably represent the greatest single contribution to the study of early Christianity yet dwtering appear in this millennium.


Detering reaches additional conclusions, and those will also become evident in the twenty-four posts to follow. While I agree with the six points listed above, I must admit in advance that I am not in complete agreement with Dr. Detering on all his conclusions. These posts essentially present my views, using those of Dr. Detering as a springboard.

I understand his article has been translated into English, but as far as I know the translation is not online. I plan on uploading 1—2 posts per week. Thus, the 24 posts they have already been drafted should take 3—6 months to upload. In addition to a little bolding and underlining, there will be some color-coding: For those who persevere to the end, your eyes will be opened.
