    I'm unfortunately in between academic institutions right now and can't read reviews of the commentary you're referring to. The issue is one that I...

    Going off Ehrman's How Jesus Became God, the last book he wrote with this specific issue in mind, he believes that the body was taken off the cross,...

    Crossan and Koester are the two most prominent. There's another scholar who contributed to the Anchor Bible Dictionary who thinks similarly, but so...

    That is very unlikely. It's very difficult to believe that Jesus was left on the cross for days at a time. I can't think of a single scholar...

    I'm quite aware what Mark's account says. What I'm saying, and what many scholars also say, is that it's implausible for the Sanhedrin to be convened...

    If you follow the Markan account (i.e. the one most likely to be tied to history), the entire Sanhedrin finds Jesus guilty. I don't find an...
