COMPLETE INTERVIEW Sr. Rose interviews Reza Aslan on controversial best seller “Zealot: the Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth”

About two weeks ago I had the opportunity to interview Reza Azlan author of the new best seller “Zealot: the Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.” Now with the Reza Aslan interview trending on Fox News, here’s my complete interview in nine parts!

Today, August 2, 2013, The Raw Story published an article about my interview with Raza Aslan with a partial transcript of one of the segments.

I think my favorite segments are when Reza talks about the new pope and the preferential option for the poor in Part V and what he learned by going to a Jesuit university in Part VII

    Well, I have seen a few unflattering reviews of the book. I am curious to see your interview. Will a transcript be available as well?

    The Septuagint was the Greek translation of the Jewish scripture, so there were many Greek speaking Jews during the time of Jesus. The Gospels being written in Greek doesn’t necessarily mean that their primary audience were pagans.

    Well, I watched them all. Thank you Sister for providing them. I don’t see any malice in the man, but I think the criticisms leveled against the work are fair. I’m not even sure how good a scholar he is. Lots of scholarly points of his are dubius, as Kim just below points out.
