“Killing Jesus” is a book far more interested in glorifying Jesus than presenting honest history. It’s a book attempting to proselytize more than educate.
The surrounding history is done well. When the book isn’t covering Jesus, it provides great information and detail on fascinating characters such as Julius Caesar and Cleopatra.
When it comes to other characters, nothing is held back. The uncomfortable details are shared. But with Jesus he is protected.
It’s hard to recommend a book that’s so biased in its portrayal of history. For anyone who decides to read Killing Jesus, my advice is to be aware of what are true accounts of history and what is selective and sugar coated hearsay.

As Father Helminiak points out, the Bible has no concept of homosexuality, which is a modern concept and word. What one can study is what the Bible says about what we would class as some forms of homosexual behavior. But the biblical authors lacked the concept, and so could not classify anything as homosexual. Therefore, there can be no general condemnation of homosexual behavior (our concept) in the Bible, like it or not. That’s the fact.
a study of the Greek shows that Jesus affirmed a gay couple !
The mega-church pastor insists that God ‘accepts you, he approves of you.’ And when pressed during a recent interview if that included gay people, the televangelist offered a surprising answer.
“I’m not trying to get them to join my religion, I’m just trying to plant a seed of hope in their heart.”
