Great religious writing from the New Yorker

Searching for Jesus in the Gospels.

Great piece on reconciling (or inability to reconcile) the Christian understanding of Christ with the historical Jesus, using the book of Mark and recent publications as a backdrop. As the son of a preacher, I’m not necessarily the first to be vocal with my beliefs. This article comes close to describing the kind of theological detective work I’m used to in terms of creating a “composite” of Jesus.
