Frontline: From Jesus to Christ
« on: December 16, 2009, 12:26:51 PM »
Anyone ever watch the Frontline (PBS program) entitled From Jesus to Christ?  A friend of mine who is a Krishna devotee watched it and found it very informative.  If you have watched it, is it worth checking out, or is it full of the stereotypical History Channel-style claptrap that makes exceptions the rule, so to speak?

I saw it a long time ago (its not new).  I'd advise some discernment:IIRC it has the St. Paul changed Christ's teaching bit, but some informative moments.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
