Severe bias[edit]

This article reads as an anti Tübingen school apology. I think it needs a top to bottom NPOV cleaning. So I want to sort open this up for conversation to see who is out there in terms of watching this article and what you think. jbolden1517Talk 06:12, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Almost nobody gets excited by the Tubingen School; or, even the Jesus Seminar. Robert Price has been trying to bring back interest in Baur but without much success.71.76.193.38 (talk) 00:42, 14 October 2011 (UTC)

Antisemitism[edit]

Is there any evidence to suggest that Baur's exegesis might have promoted antisemitism in 19th century and 20th century Germany ? The distinctions he commonly made between Jewish Christians and Gentile Christians were probably convenient for German Aryan ideologues who were looking to purify Christianity from its alleged Jewish roots. If anything, Baur's exegesis is a type of continuation with that of Marcion of Sinope, an early Gnostic bishop who was really the first to suggest that there really was such as thing as Pauline Christianity. Most contemporary scholars consider Paul to have been strongly Jewish anyways (cf Paul of Tarsus and Judaism). ADM (talk) 06:05, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
