Horus Manure

Horus Manure July 15, 2015

I’m not sure how I missed it, but a few years ago, Catholic apologist Jon Sorensen came up with a very clever title for a post about alleged Jesus-Horus parallels: Horus Manure. Whatever you think of the post, that’s a pun that was too good not to share.

More up to date, Gakusei Don (who is a regular commenter here) updated his review of Richard Carrier’s book, On the Historicity of Jesus.

Also of interest, Matthew Ferguson proposed the Certamen of Homer and Hesiod as a parallel to the New Testament Gospels. Mythologized biography is not unique to early Christianity by any means.

I also have meant for some time to mention Daniel Gulotta’s series of posts about Dennis Macdonald’s work: his SBL presentation, Jesus and Odysseus, and a review of The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark. I also meant to mention a while back David Hayward’s post about Richard C. Miller’s book, Resurrection and Reception in Early Christianity.

And in case anyone wants to chime in, I’ve somehow ended up talking with a mythicist on one of my YouTube videos
