    I’m excited about this Tony. Almost as much as I like your dog.

    And then Jesus came upon his disciples and said, “Brethren, I’ve heard it said that I am to be a human sacrifice for your sins. May I asketh, who in the goddamn hell came up with that Neanderthal bullshit!!!???

    Blood sacrifice!!!???? Are you all fucking insane!!!!????

    Brethren, listen carefully as I tell you something of great importance.

    The idea that the blood of a savage human sacrifice will drift up to the heavens and unleash magical powers of atonement from the invisible deity living there is, without a doubt, the most absurd, preposterous, revolting, sickening, evil and idiotic pile of Cro-Magnon donkey shit that the human mind has ever concocted in our entire history on planet Earth!!

    Blood sacrifice!!!!! Do you hear what you’re fucking saying!!!????

    Brethren, thou can all take your dying for sins lunacy and shove it straight up thy fucking asses!!!!!”

    And the disciple whom Jesus loved the most said, “Well shit, man!! Maybe we can get Billy Ray to die for our sins.

    Anybody got Billy Ray’s phone number?

    I saw this after a Google search: “Did God Kill Jesus? Why the Cross Is All About Love and Grace, Not Perpetuating Shame and Guilt.” Is this the working subtitle?

    The whole “mystery” of sacrifice was Paul’s sycretism of Greco-Roman mystery religions onto Judaism. Jesus would be aghast at the Bible story of him being a Platonic Redeemer.

    Just a hint at the difference between Jesus the Jew, and Paul the Platonist:

    Jesus: He is not the God of the dead, but of the living… [LK 20.38]
    Paul: “Lord of the dead and the living.” [RO 14.9]

    Note that Jesus rejects Platonic atonement “at service of the living and the dead,” while Paul embraces Platonic notions, as follows:

    […] they perform their ritual, and persuade not only individuals, but whole cities, that expiations and atonements for sin may be made by sacrifices and amusements which fill a vacant hour, and are equally at the service of the living and the dead; the latter sort they call mysteries, and they redeem us from the pains of hell, but if we neglect them no one knows what awaits us.
