The Pagan Origins of Jesus Christ
Were there Christs before Christ?
In a word, yes.
Before Jesus, there were other savior figures whose myths inspired entire religions. The legends of these pagan "savior gods" (such as Attis, Mithras, Horus and Osiris) were clearly in circulation long before Jesus is said to have lived.
In this clip from The God Who Wasn't There, Jesus Seminar fellow Robert M. Price tells us the excuse that 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.
Discover the facts for yourself. See the movie that Newsweek says "irreverently lays out the case that Jesus Christ never existed."
The DVD of this illuminating film is available now.
