Director of "Basic Instinct" writes Jesus biography
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - "Basic Instinct" director Paul Verhoeven has written a book that contradicts biblical teaching by suggesting that Jesus might have been fathered by a Roman soldier who raped Mary.
An Amsterdam publishing house said Wednesday it will publish the Dutch filmmaker's biography of Jesus, "Jesus of Nazareth: A Realistic Portrait," in September.
Verhoeven is best known as the director of blockbuster films including "Basic Instinct" and "RoboCop," but he is also a member of "Jesus Seminar," a group of scholars and authors that seeks to establish historical facts about Jesus....
Davey is right; this is nothing new. And it won't be the last either. Minnow is also right; if you want to have your sin, you will find a way to discount a Creator that holds you accountable. (Romans 1)
The thing I found amusing (amusing if it weren't so pathetic) is that this guy is considered a scholar! And I quote,
"Verhoeven is best known as the director of blockbuster films including 'Basic Instinct' and 'RoboCop,' but he is also a member of 'Jesus Seminar,' a group of scholars and authors that seeks to establish historical facts about Jesus."
Not that being considered a "scholar" means much anyway, but this paragraph had me laughing out loud! Directing "Robocop" should be an embarrassment, not a credential.
Then we are told by a professor of religious studies that, and I quote, "they are real scholars â€” you have to deal with them."
Did anyone proofread this aricle before publishing it!?
