Did Jesus Die in Outer Space?

Did Jesus Die in Outer Space? October 29, 2014

Over the past several weeks I’ve been reading Richard Carrier’s book, On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt, which The Bible and Interpretation kindly sent me a copy of, asking me to provide them with a review.

It soon became clear to me that a single review with an overview of the book, however useful, would inevitably fail to do justice to the many important details, worthy of detailed discussion in their own right.

To that end, I wrote the first of what I hope will be a series of review articles for The Bible and InterpretationThat article is called “Did Jesus Die in Outer Space? Evaluating a Key Claim in Richard Carrier’s On the Historicity of Jesus.” Please click through to read it, and then discuss it in comments on The Bible and Interpretation website, or here, or both.
