Jesus ⟶ Christ or Christ ⟶ Jesus?

Post by Giuseppe »

Dubourg claims that the early Christians found Jesus as consequence of their interest to give an name to Christ.

The Barabbas episode, from the other hand, per criterion of embarrassment, reveals that the resistance was very old, against the claims that Jesus was the Christ.

If Dubourg was correct, then we would have the challenge between two rival Christs, and not between two rival Jesuses.

The Barabbas episode is evidence, at contrary, of an embarrassing old rivarly between two Jesuses.
