More Jesus shows today
- Today on MSNBC was actually kind of a double header. Besides their
rebroadcast of the
Dateline special report: The last days of Jesus,
watched most of their Gospel of Judas offers contrarian view of Jesus:
Controversial manuscript authenticated as early Christian writing
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12186080/, which includes a link to the NBC VIDEO.
Did Jesus ask Judas to betray him?
April 7: NBC's Natalie Morales reports on the unveiling of the Gospel of
MSNBC staff and news service reports. Updated: 5:00 a.m. HT April 7, 2006
The MSNBC reports include a lot of footage of re-enactments. For example,
the Gospel of Judas apparently describes Jesus as laughing a lot, and they
showed a laughing Jesus with audio track as well as video.
I thought the MSNBC double header is worthwhile, especially for the general
public and underclassmen at the university level. The lineup of scholars
for The Last Days of Jesus was good.
