Luke Timothy Johnson on the “Historical Jesus” as Heresy

Luke Timothy Johnson on the “Historical Jesus” as Heresy September 28, 2015

I’ve been reading through Luke Timothy Johnson’s The Creed and found this provocative statement:

[T]he most remarkable evidence for Christianity’s confusion – at both extremes [progressive and conservative] – is the fact that since the time of the Enlightenment, the longest-running of all Christologies heresies has deeply infiltrated the church with scarcely any protest or controversy, much less the calling of a council of bishops to clarify and defend the faith of the church. I mean the replacement of the Christ of faith with the so-called historical Jesus.

I wonder what the guys at The Jesus Blog would say to that?
