on the well-researched 1965 book by British Bible scholar Hugo Schoenfeld,
here is the controversial theory 'Jesus was a man instead of divine'
thus, suggesting an alternate version of the birth of Christianity.
This blasphemous film insists that Jesus prepared for his crucifixion
by taking a drug which would stimulate death. After his unconscious
body was placed in the tomb, a religious sect known as the Zealots stole
it and spread the rumor that He had risen. In addition to this obvious
'religious heresy,' the movie paints Christ as a delusional rebel
who experimented with hallucinogenics and mass manipulation.
author, professor Hugo Schoenfeld was no quack. He was respected as
the world's authority on the Hebrew language after publishing The
New Hebrew Typography in 1932 which introduced a significantly revised
version of the Hebrew alphabet. Throughout the years, Dr. Schoenfeld
became a highly respected scholar and researcher (responsible for The
Authentic New Testament - translated from the original Hebrew in
1955 - and was a member of the team who translated the Dead Sea Scrolls).
Paul Schoenfeld died at age 87 in January 1988.
