Jesus the Socialist: Candida Moss vs. Bill O’Reilly

Jesus the Socialist: Candida Moss vs. Bill O’Reilly October 3, 2013

Mark GoodacreChris Skinner, and Chris Keith all shared the above video and offered some comments on it.

O’Reilly seems not to be aware of Luke 14:33: “those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.”

I love that O’Reilly doesn’t know the word “anachronistic” and yet thinks he can discuss history. It explains why he can nonchalantly assert that Jesus disliked the Soviet Union.

All of the above reflects very much an American perspective on these things. And so for those in the UK, here is Anglican Memes’ reworking of a recent politicians’ statement on your side of the Atlantic, depicting the Daily Mail as accusing Jesus’ Father of being a Britain-hating socialist.

UPDATE: See also the treatment of O’Reilly’s 60 Minutes interview on the Colbert Report.
