The general introduction to BORN IN THE SECOND CENTURY, and a reading of the infamous Fragment of Quadratus.
Anyone who listens to this episode can learn about all the difficult problems that come from viewing Christianity as a religion that began after the supposed death of Jesus of Nazareth around 30 AD. Host Chris Palmero presents an alternative view: the Special Paradigm. The theory that Christianity was born out of a mélange of clashing religious ideas nearly 100 years later.
A key piece of early Christian history is examined and found to be spurious: a fragment from a lost book by Quadratus, which claims that some of the people who were resurrected by Jesus lived on into the following century.
Opening reading: Celsus, in the Logos Alethes, describes the MLM-like conversion tactics of Christians in the waning days of the 100's AD.
