ELSEWHERE: Is Reza Aslan’s “Zealot” As Revolutionary As It Seems To Be?

I’m sure you’ve seen by now links to the recent Fox interview with author Reza Aslan regarding his new book about Jesus titled Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth. However, according to The American Conservative‘s Alan Jacobs, the real news should be that Aslan’s views are not nearly as new or revolutionary as they seem. Or, as Jacobs puts it, “Reza Aslan’s book is an educated amateur’s summary and synthesis of a particularly skeptical but quite long-established line of New Testament scholarship, presented to us as simple fact.”
