    One thought on “Dethroning Jesus: Exposing Popular Culture's Quest to Unseat the Biblical Christ”

    1. Awalnya tertarik karena buku ini menyinggung dan membahas isi buku Misquoting Jesus Ehrman yang sempat membooming di buku terlaris New York Times di tahun 2005 yang mencoba mengguncang iman Kristen khususnya kaum awam Ketertarikan berlanjut ketika buku ini juga menyinggung sekaligus membahas tentang ketidaksesuaian isi injil Yudas yang ditemukan tahun 1978 di Al Minya sebuah propinsi di Mesir Tengah sekitar 120 mil di Selatan Kairo.Akhirnya aku memutuskan mencoba menelan bacaan yang berat dikare [...]

    2. NT Scholars Bock and Wallace show that, despite many contemporary, popular challenges to Christianity, Jesus rightful place is that of enthroned Messiah, not mere sage or political pundit.They begin with an introduction that lays the conceptual framework the book is framed in a discussion of Jesusanity vs Christianity The former gives a truncated view of Jesus A Jesus who is sage or teacher Who simply tries to show the way to god, and it is a way almost all religions can accept The latter, conve [...]

    3. In the last few decades, and especially in the last few years, books about Jesus aimed at popular audiences have become quite common The arguments presented vary, but there is a general picture that emerges Whereas classical Christianity tells of a Jesus who as a divine Redeemer heals a broken relationship between God and man, who as Prophet, Priest, and King is properly an object of worship, what the authors call Jesusanity is the modern portrait that has a high regard for Jesus as a teacher wh [...]

    4. If you want a thorough debunking of writers like Ehrman, Crossan Borg, Tabor, and the documentary produced by Cameron on the Jesus Ossuary, this is your book Honestly, it gave me a headache reading it, I didn t find it particularly enjoyable It was an argumentative book However, it was thorough, and probably would be a handy resource if you are talking to people who are attempting to make a case for Jesus having never physically come back to life, or never intended to be made out to be than a p [...]

    5. Mengupas klaim 2 yang mengakui Yesus Kristus hanya sekedar manusia, nabi, ataupun guru yang IMO sudah dinubuatkan di Alkitab sebagai Antikris, yaitu paham yang menolak Yesus sebagai Kristus.Dan perbedaannya dengan kepercayaan pengikut Yesus Kristus, yang disebut Kristen, yaitu bahwa Yesus Kristus adalah 100% Tuhan dan 100% manusia Ini soal Tuhan sendiri, yang nekat lahir sebagai manusia dan merasakan penderitaan dan penghinaan besar, untuk menyatakan bahwa niat Nya menciptakan manusia itu bukan [...]

    6. Anda pernah mendengar tentang, misalnya Alkitab sudah tidak bisa dipercayai lagi karena salinan salinan yang kita miliki penuh kesalahan, telah ditambah tambahi,dsb Pandangan ini biasanya didiskusikan dalam area Kritik Teks Dan menarik bahwa Bock dan Wallace mendiskusikan isu tersebut dari sudut pandang kekristenan Injili Dalam buku ini, Bock dan Wallace juga menggunakan label yang berbeda untuk mereka yang mengakui Kristologi Ortodoks dan yang tidak mengakuinya Mereka yang mengakui doktrin ters [...]

    7. Definately a book for the lay Christian to read as the attacks grow daily on the historical, cultural and theological truthfulness of the Bible grows by its opponents and those who are seeking to dumb down Jesus Christ and the truthfulness of His identity.It has creeped into our churches as the new age, postmodernist become seminary trained pastors and seek to unhinge their connection to the centuries of truth telling for the sake of tolerance and non convictional love Wallace and Bock are on th [...]

    8. Buku ini mungkin akan mengacak acak iman Anda sebagai seorang Kristen Bahasan utamanya adalah perbedaan utama antara Yesusanitas dan Kristianitas Walaupun dua duanya sama menempatkan Yesus sebagai tokoh utama namun ada perbedaan yang sangat mendasar di antaranya Kristianitas yang mendasari iman Kristen mengakui bahwa Yesus adalah Tuhan Mesias Sang Juru Selamat Sedangkan Yesusanitas, yang berkembang belakangan, hanya menempatkan Yesus sebagai tokoh biasa Bukan juru selamat apalagi Tuhan itu sendi [...]

    9. The information contained in this book is very good However, in my opinion, the book isn t very accessible to the audience for whom it was written the average layperson The writers are scholars and though I sense they tried to write outside of their very scholastic norm, the book s language and style just don t flow well for me The content is good, I just feel the delivery of the content could invoke enthusiasm and excitement A better book is Reinventing Jesus which essentially covers the same [...]

    10. This book is not for the faint of heart Please understand, it is an excellent treatment of the subject of Jesusanity the idea that Jesus was a good man Whose message one of living a good life and rebelling against the machine was corrupted by his disciples and the passage of time , but it is a tough read A little technical That said, if you can persevere, you will gain an understanding of the intellectual problems behind subscribing to the above view To sum up, the book is a refutation of a fals [...]

    11. A very well written and well needed book It is obvious that the jesusanity, as they call it, receives the most attention and the public of course enjoy the novelty feel of it However, this books shows that the tradition Christianity with relieance on the four Gospel as much to state for its case People like Ehrman and others clearly make hasty assumptions and this books highlights them well without simply breaking straw men

    12. Drs Bock and Wallace puts the historical Jesus on the public forum for all to read The misunderstandings about Jesus are stripped down neatly, and the real Jesus is exposed Simply an excellent resource

    13. A bit dry, but an excellent expose of the nonsense that is critical Christianity , or liberal theology Debunks most of the myths of the Jesus Seminar and similar bizarre attempts to de religion Christianity.

    14. A well written if dense examination of the scholarly divide between orthodox Christianity and what the authors call Jesusanity While it s designed for a lay audience, it can be pretty intense reading at times.

    15. This is a book for those who may be confused by what is currently being preached in some main line churches.

    16. A fairly quick read but I must admit that I wasn t aware that Jesusanity was becoming a big movement much of the info I ve heard elsewhere but I m glad I read it nonetheless.
