Historical biographies[edit]

I came upon an interesting theory, perhaps it could be mentioned in passing in this article ( I just don't see where ). There are many contradictions between Matthew's and Luke's stories about birth and childhood of Jesus. According to Matthew, Jesus, grandson of Jacob, was born during the time of Herod ( i.e. before 4 BC ), received gifts from the Magi, his family fled to Egypt to escape the Massacre of the Innocents, and then a few years later moved to Nazareth. According to Luke, Jesus, grandson of Heli, was born during the Quirinius census ( 6 AD ), taken to Jerusalem and then returned home to Nazareth. There's no mention of the Magi, massacre or Egypt. The theory goes that these two passages refer to two different Jesuses, both sufficiently important to Jewish people at the time. Later these two got confused. One of them is Jesus Christ; the other - an insurrectioner who planned to overthrow the Roman government in Judea - is no other than Jesus Barabbas. Let me see if I can pull up some links. --8.4.80.163 01:40, 15 Apr 2005 (UTC) --66.99.3.143

Conflicting details in speculative biographies of historical figures are not usually harmonized by claims that there were multiple persons. --Wetman 00:49, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Unecessary Paragraph[edit]

I removed the following text because it contributes nothing new (Barrabas related) to the article.

"It appears inconsistent that the same crowd that demands the freedom of a violently anti-Roman insurrectionist is supposedly the same multitude that cries out, 'We have no king but Caesar!'"

Irrelevant and Disputed Interpretation of Matthew 5:39[edit]

I removed the following clause : "– which means not submission but strong and courageous, though nonviolent, defiance and resistance." It is irrelevant, original, uncited, and disputed among different Christian denominations. Apollo (talk) 16:08, 29 March 2014 (UTC)
