I recently came across a youtuber known as TruthSurge, who has a series titled Excavating the Empty Tomb:
He basically promotes the Christ myth “theory” but from a different perspective. He uses a book by Dennis MacDonald which says that the Gospels were responses to the Homeric epics and that Jesus is a fictional character.
I am quite skeptical of it, because of two things:
TruthSurge is not a scholar or has any credentials.
I think it is very strange that in almost 2000 no one noticed such a thing. I mean, why didn’t people from centuries ago notice that already? I read in a review that MacDonald strains passages to fit his thesis.
Is MacDonald right or is this just Christ myth nonsense?
