For 1700 years, the concept of Jesus as the son of God was the only one taught in all Christendom. The penalty for entertaining any other view was usually painful death. Not until the eighteenth century, with the Age of Rationalism, did men dare to question this version. A new theological discipline was born, that of higher biblical criticism, a historical examination of the Old and New Testaments. The moment scholars dared to examine Gospel events critically, the evangelists’ accounts began to shatter, as new facts placed old assumptions in jeopardy.

In the heat of this scholarly skepticism, the theological solder, which for eighteen centuries had held the Gospel structure together, melted, and the edifice collapsed.
