The Christs Before Christ
Before Jesus, there were other savior figures whose myths inspired religions. These early "savior cults" came into existence long before Jesus is said to have lived.
In this clip, Jesus Seminar fellow and author Robert M. Price (The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man) tells us the excuse early church fathers offered for this very inconvenient fact. Price is a former fundamentalist Christian who, upon investigating his religion in seminary, became convinced that Jesus Christ most likely did not exist at all.
