Oh my, a fight between Candida Moss and Bill O’Reilly to determine which one is more ignorant about Jesus Christ. The entire video is cringe inducing to anyone who has read the Gospels. My reaction while watching it was the same one of Henry Kissinger during the Iran-Iraq War: It is a pity that they both can’t lose. The difference of course is that O’Reilly is a TV talking head, one or two steps up from a barker at a freak show. One expects him to be bone ignorant. Ms. Moss, whose lack of academic prowess we have examined here and here as to her The Myth of Persecution, which twists the history of Roman persecutions of Christians for contemporary political ends, is a Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity in the theology department of Notre Dame. That sad fact tells you all you need to know about the standards of scholarship, and sanity, now on display at that university.
