“Fake News Jesus” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward


There was a great teacher whose truths ushered in… no… revealed… a new paradigm… or, actually, a reality that always is but was heretofore unseen.

His followers noticed, after his execution, that the essence of his teachings and the ethos of their community lingered.

The spirit of who he was and what he revealed remained.

They spoke and wrote about it with the only language that seemed to suffice… theirs.

    It is a great question: what is pure fact, blended fact and story, and pure story in the accounts of Jesus’ life.

    As I’ve aged, I have moved more and more away from believing that the miracles were pure fact, and that the parables were indeed spoken by Jesus, and repeated among his followers.

    Yet, because I became a believer as a teen, I remember the incredible ‘conversion’ I experienced. Something happened very deep. My mind forever changed.

    Even if Jesus did none of the miracles, that one encounter deeply moved me.

    And I enjoy the sense of his presence to this day.

    I have learned kindness, gentleness, humor, and appreciation of other human beings — all from Jesus’ words.

    If it was all fake news, it has been worth it.

    What other words would you prefer the Apostles, etc to have used? Just wondering.

  4. No other words except their own. I do not say this as an insult.

    Oh, ok, I didn’t know the angle you were going for. So, what is an example of what Jesus thinks is fake in the Bible?

  6. The virgin birth might be a good place to start.
