Who’s funding the latest Jesus hit piece?

The media is in love with Reza Aslan’s new book Zealot, which claims to provide a ‘historical’ look at the life of Jesus. NPR called it ‘Christ in context,’ while the Seattle Times wrote, ‘Zealot looks at the age Jesus lived in to expand what’s known about this historic figure.’

Over the last week or so, the book shot from obscurity to number one on the Amazon bestseller list. It is always curious when the media decides to trumpet a book based on Jesus, and the situation becomes even more suspect when you begin to uncover who Aslan really is.

“The name of the book is Zealot. The guy who has written it – in no way controversial. There’s no controversy attached to this at all in the mainstream media, which is strange,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

Aslan is Muslim, and while that has little to no impact on his ability to write a book about Jesus, the media and Aslan have sought to minimize that fact. During an awkward interview with Fox News, religion correspondent Lauren Green attempted to broach the subject with mixed results.

GREEN: Well, this is an interesting book. You are a Muslim, so why did you write a book about the funder of Christianity?

ASLAN: Well, to be clear, I’m a scholar of religions with four degrees, including one in the New Testament and fluency in biblical Greek, who’s been studying the origins of Christianity for two decades, who also just happens to be a Muslim? It’s not just I’m a Muslim writing about Jesus. I’m an expert with a Ph.D. in religions, but I have been obsessed –

GREEN: It still begs questions why would you be interested in the founder of Christianity.

ASLAN: Because it’s my job as an academic. I am a professor of religion, including the New Testament. That’s what I do for a living actually. So it would be like asking a Christian why they would write a book about Islam; I’m not sure about that, but honestly, I have been obsessed with Jesus for really 20 years. I have been studying his life and his work and the origins of Christianity, both in an academic environment and in a personal level for about two decades. Just to be clear, this is not an attack on Christianity. My mother is a Christian, my wife is a Christian, my brother-in-law is an Evangelical pastor. Anyone who thinks this is an attack on Christianity has not read it yet.

In reality, a little bit of research into Aslan and his past shows that the motives behind him writing this book have very little to do with religion.

Zealot is the latest in the progressive attempt to rewrite history,” Glenn said. “The amazing thing is, it’s working. It’s working… It’s not that he’s a Muslim. It’s the fact he’s a liar and a progressive.”

Aslan went out of his way to emphasize his academic background in order to claim authority on the subject, but there has been very little said about the nature of his education.

“Okay, he has four degrees and here they are,” Glenn said. “1995: BA in Religion from Santa Clara University. 1995: Master of Theological Studies from Harvard. Then in 2002, he got Master of Fine Arts in Fiction from the University of Iowa. Then in 2009, he got his only Ph.D. He’s a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. So where is the Ph.D. in the history of religions? He doesn’t have one.”

“Well, the problem is, he’s not a historian. At least according to his credentials,” he continued. “He does not have a Ph.D. in the history of religions. He has a Ph.D. in Sociology. What he does for a living? He teaches creative writing. That’s what he does. He teaches creative writing.”

Considering how much pride he seems to take in his degrees, it is surprising to learn that Aslan’s credentials are not exactly as he described. On tonight’s Glenn Beck Program, Glenn will take a deeper look at some of the passages in Zealot that contain fairly obvious factual errors to anyone who has read the Bible, in addition to some of Aslan’s affiliations and funding.

“This is a rewriting of our history. This is a shedding of our traditions and our beliefs and our history. That sounds familiar. And the press is doing it and most of America is going gleefully down that road,” Glenn said. “Why? Because nobody’s pointing it out. And even when we point it out, the rest of the media is not going to pick up on this. [They] won’t make a big deal out of it.”

“Tonight we are going to do a half hour on this guy that you don’t want to miss,” he concluded. “Facts on this man that the media is not going to give you. And when you hear and you will ask, ‘Why? Why haven’t I heard that?’”

    Your approach is phony GB . . . hey,  is not that he is a Muslim, but a liberal/progressive intellectual . . . you conservatives are funny as hell. One day is one thing, the other day is something new. Please, just read the book and you might find something interesting to elevate your mind and information. By the way, I, personally, did not like the book much, because I am a Christian since I can remember, but if we starting to block or put barriers on a book just because a conservative or liberal pundit say so, we are doomed . . . for real folks!!

    “Aslan is Muslim, and while that has little to no impact on his ability to write a book about Jesus, the media and Aslan have sought to minimize that fact”  We all know how Beck hates Muslims. He did a REAL hit piece on a Saudi student last April, accusing him of terrorism and then being a bag man for terrorists and all kinds of things – all false it turns out. But Beck’s audience gave him a pass on this major and damaging fumble, which is no surprise. They’re really not the brightest lot. I’ve probably blown more intelligent things into a hanky.

    I keep this handy to disprove idiots like you.
    Things Jesus and his disciples said that show that they are not Socialist and speaks out against what Socialist do in order to gain power and take money that does not belong to them.
    1. Holding people at gun point and stealing their money in the name of fairness.
    2 Corinthians 9:7
    Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
    2. He wanted people to give money not of feeling guilt but out of love.
    Mark 12:41-44
    And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.”
    3. He wants people to give in secret and not boast but socialist countries can’t help but boast about them steeling from the rich.
    Matthew 6:1-4
    “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
    4. Jesus own brother said that faith without works is dead but yet you want us to believe Jesus was a socialist who believe it is the governments job to do works for the poor.
    James 2:14-17
    What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
    5. Paul the guy Jesus picked after his death said if you don’t work you don’t eat but yet socialism breeds laziness because socialist tell the poor and lazy it is ok we will take care of you for life.
    2 Thessalonians 3:10
    For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat.
    6. Paul also said this which sounds like he was talking to one of you occupiers.
    2 Corinthians 8:12
    For if the readiness is there, it is acceptable according to what a person has, not according to what he does not have.
    7 you take bible verses out of context like Matthew 19:23-24 “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Put it into context it talks about following God and giving up everything for him when he demands it. The rich man didn’t fail because he was rich he failed because he would not do what Jesus said to do and in context you can see that.
    16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”
    17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”
    18 “Which ones?” he inquired.
    Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’[a] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”
    20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
    21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
    22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
    23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
    25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”
    26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
    27 Peter answered him, “We have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?”
    28 Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, at the renewal of all things, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife[c] or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and many who are last will be first.

    Matthew 6:25-34 therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at how the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
    And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass in the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying “what shall we drink?” Or “What shall we drink? Or “what shall we wear? For the pagans run after these things, and you heavenly father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for, tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.

    Sam Fisher I want to see is I follow your and really Beck’s sheeple’s logic its not ok for Aslan’s to write about Jesus cause he a Muslim and doesn’t believe Jesus is god’s son but its ok for you guys to call Mohammed a pedophile and a servant of Satan?

    The guy never said he had four Phds, he said he had four degrees–four more than you and the three talking heads on the Glenn Beck program combined. He has a BA in religion from a fine institution, an MA in theological studies from arguably the best college in the world, all of which are enough credentials to write such a book. PhDs in the social sciences and humanities are largely about learning research and critical thinking methods, not about learning ‘facts’ and more ‘facts.’ Anyone with this guy’s training(even people with less training) can write a sophisticated and learned book on religion.

    You can’t even spell and construct basic sentences with any consistency, yet you trash this guy’s academic credentials. Beck relies on the historical interpretation of a minister and political ideologue with no advanced degrees in anything. Go read a book.

     Sorry Pachy but your lack of understanding of having all things in common is not socialism as it was voluntary and it was self regulated and involved no government agency or representatives.  Communial living has been tried by religious and nonreligous groups through out mans history, even the first pilgrims in America, but has failed because so few of us are honest or self motivated enough to make it work.

     Glenn never says Aslan can’t write a book. If you look at what he’s saying, he’s simply calling into question Aslan’s credibility, using Aslan’s own words, and research into Aslan’s actual education.
    You can write any book you want, but don’t claim scholarly legitimacy on the subject and lie about your credentials. That’s why the guy who wrote “A Million Little Pieces” went down; he misrepresented himself and lost credibility.

    Where to begin? Beck’s “historian” in Beck U is David Barton who does not have a degree in history.

    That’s having double standards, the least of Beck’s problems.

    Aslan has two degrees in religion, and Glenn Beck has one course at Yale. Chances are good that Aslan is more historically accurate than what Glenn Beck, college drop-out believes about Jesus.

    That’s subtle anti-intellectualism, one of Beck’s fortes.

    Then, there’s Glenn Beck, proven liar, pointing his finger at Aslan for claiming that he was “an expert with a PhD in religions,” which addresses Aslan’s dissertation rather than his department in the university. 

    That’s hypocrisy, and there’s more of it. Historical revisionist (toward false narratives) is calling Aslan a historical revisionist, which he is (toward greater accuracy). 

    In the newsletter linking to this, Aslan is accused of “smearing Jesus.” It’s Glenn Beck smearing Aslan. The “factual errors” that Beck is accusing him of compare with the Bible, which was not written until two generations after Jesus died!  Oral traditions ingrained inaccuracies that Aslan is correcting as best as he can as a scholar.

    Finally, the “awkward” interview at Fox most people are calling embarrassing for Fox because Green was do bad at it.

    Bias. Beck’s reactionary bias does not allow him to perceive Aslan, Jesus, Obama, Soros, the Koch brothers, history, religion, etc. etc in an accurate and balanced manner. Outside of far right circles, Beck is perceived as a buffoon at best. 

    Glenn Beck is a freak of media.

    Jesus was not a socialist, He was the Son of God, who revealed The Father to those who followed, and still follow Him. Jesus did not hate the rich, He exhorted them to not put their faith in the temporal gain, but to lay up treasure in heaven. The point was about idolatry. As far as the early church, there was no compulsion to give to the common good, but when the Holy Spirit rearranged their priorities, property and other forms of wealth were given out of love for each other and a holy desire to see those with need, satisfied. Only when people do those things to be seen of men to gain approval, or out of fear of being judged by others, does this present problems.

  • Anonymous

    Pachy, the Bible wholeheartedly opposes anything approaching Socialism.  Here is an explicit passage from the Apostle Paul:

    6 In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us. 7 For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example. We were not idle when we were with you, 8 nor did we eat anyone’s food without paying for it. On the contrary, we worked night and day, laboring and toiling so that we would not be a burden to any of you. 9 We did this, not because we do not have the right to such help, but in order to offer ourselves as a model for you to imitate. 10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”11 We hear that some among you are idle and disruptive. They are not busy; they are busybodies. 12 Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the food they eat. 13 And as for you, brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is good.14 Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed. 15 Yet do not regard them as an enemy, but warn them as you would a fellow believer.
    -2 Thessalonians 3:6-15
    You see, the Lord wanted EVERYONE who was physically able to work to do so.  God also was against food stamps because God wanted everyone to EARN their own food.  Everyone was supposed to have an independent work ethic and not strain the body of believers in Thessalonica.  THAT is not communal living.  The onus here is on work being a civic duty and a moral obligation.  THAT is CAPITALISM.  Elsewhere in the Bible it states that it is the obligation of those who CAN earn money to help those who CAN’T.  But it does not say that the state can compel you to do so.  Love compels you to help those in need.  God’s command is to do what is right out of love, NOT because you HAVE to.

    He said it in the interview with Lauren Green.  Look back to Glenn’s link “Muslim Professor writes book about Jesus.”  Dr. Aslan said it several times.  Those of us in these Glenn Beck threads watched him tout his 4 Phds over and over.  I hate to quivel over something small but just look back to the video posted on this website last Monday.

    Besides the overwhelming biblical evidence to the contrary, why do Socialists always despise religion?  Karl Marx: “Religion is the opiate of the people.”  And Vladimir Lenin issued a decree on December 25, 1919 that any Christian who took the day off to observe the holiday should be SHOT!  There is historical documentation of this.  Go look it up for yourself if you don’t believe me.

  • Anonymous

    Actually strike that.  I know you are going to ask me to post proof and do all the work for you so here is the quote:
    Lenin especially detested Christmas. On December 25, 1919, he issued an edict directed at all levels of Soviet society: “To put up with ‘Nikola’ [the religious holiday] would be stupid — the entire Cheka must be on the alert to see to it that those who do not show up for work because of ‘Nikola’ are shot.”

     Sam, this is in reply to the guy who replied to you (it won’t let me reply to him/her).
    Dude, do you even read the Bible, or do you follow someone else’s “research” and talking points?
    John 10:36 “Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the SON OF GOD?” (emphasis added).
    That is just one of the places Jesus calls himself the son of God. He ALSO calls himself the Son of Man (specifically in Luke), which is the phrase “huois anthropos” in the Greek, meaning offspring of human (i.e. his mother Mother was human). In this context it does not contradict because he was both the Son of God (because God directly caused Mary to conceive him), and the “Son of Man” (because Mary was a human being).
    If you would actually spend some time reading the Bible to UNDERSTAND what it says, rather than just to have a talking point to attack it, you may actually get it.

    Salman Rushdie writes a book about Islam and the Muslim clerics issue a Fatwa (religious order) for him to be executed on sight. Aslan writes a book about Christianity and Christians read it, discuss it, point out the factual errors about it, research the author, find out he lied about his credentials (or at least misled everyone) to establish credibility, and challenge him on it.
    So which one is the religion of peace?

    While Mr. Aslan is mostly correct about Jesus not proclaiming himself to be God(Christ and God are two different things)he does himself a disservice by saying he is fluent in biblical Greek so he’s is able to be a Bible scholar. The fact is, the Bible written in Greek and then translated to English is a traslation of a translation. Meaning an awful lot of it is like the telephone game, eash traslation loses it’s original meaning. If he wanted to write about the historical Jesus he would need to read an English traslation from Aramaic. Both the Gnostic gospels AND the Dead Sea scrolls would be available to him that way. The best thing about the Gnostic gospels that none of the four Bible gospels have is that they are directly from some of the disciples including Mary Magdeline(yes, she was a disciple)and Thomas. They couldn’t write but hired scribes to write for them. It’s not known WHY those accounts never made it into the Bible everyone knows but an awful lot of books got left out. Probably because of the commitee who oversaw what got into and left out of the Bible due to politics.

    While everyone is criticizing this professor for lying about his credentians and debating on if Jesus got smeared didn’t anyone catch what this guy’s last name is? Aslan. He writes a book about Jesus. It might be coincidendence or irony or something but wasn’t the lion is “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” named Aslan and he was portrayed in the Narnia books as Jesus? The other problem about this guy writing thisparticular bok at this particular time ishe claims to be fluent in Biblical Greek. Which may be true but the Bible written in Greek is a traslation of a translation. When it was translated into English it lost even more of the original text. Which was Aramaic. Then translated to Hebrew, then Greek and finally to English. If Professor Aslan read from the original Gnostic Gospels(written by scribes from some of the actual disciples)and the Dead Sea Scrolls he would been able to find out just what the differences between the historical Jesus and the Christ Jesus really were.

    Double standards much?

    I didn’t think that you had the intellect to respond with anything but an insult. That’s your way of conveying to the world (wide web) that Beck’s loyal and ardent followers are not smart enough to debate points of criticism.

    Every time, you make my point better than I can.

    You conjoined a question and a statement with no question mark, and you think you should be taken seriously?

    Please, make me LOL some more.

    If you would criticize Beck for his hypocrisy, you’d be standing on firmer ground than the quicksand of one distorted claim by Aslan.

    His dissertation was about religion; his department is moot.

    Beck’s dissertation was…oh right. He dropped out of college, like other reactionary propagandists.

    Soros actually made money via currency black markets, and also committed currency manipulation. That is why he is “evil”, not for the fact he made money, but how he made it, as well as the associated actions. Watch the link, get a better idea who Soros is.

    I don’t need every post of mine to be a blatant attack on Glenn Beck. I have disagreed with his stance or was skeptical of his views on quite a few matters, but that is not what this discussion thread is about. This is not the “I Hate Glenn Beck” thread. The discussion is about Aslan, his book, and the assertion that he is misleading people about his credentials, and that his book contains misleading information or outright falsehoods.
    As for Glenn Beck dropping out of college, what grade did Henry Ford complete again? Look it up; Ford didn’t even finish High School. There are many people who have become successful in the US, AND who have contributed to society, who didn’t finish public school educations or got a degree. So what if Beck is a college dropout? That doesn’t mean he can’t do intelligent research, or look things up. Just like with Aslan: his degrees deal with a general study of religion, “creative writing”, and the SOCIOLOGY of religions (sociology is the study of human interaction and behavior). None of Aslan’s degrees are a PhD in History of religions (as stated, his PhD is the Sociology of Religions). He MAY have taken a class on religious history as part of his curriculum in any of his degree paths, we don’t know. Nor does the fact he doesn’t have a degree in HISTORY or HISTORY OF RELIGIONS, prevent him from doing research. As he said himself, he’s been “studying” Jesus for 20 years or so. The problem arises when he lies or misleads people about his credentials in order to bolster his credibility, and that he makes claims that are easily disprovable by the layman (such as his assertion that Jesus never said he was the Son of God; read John 10:36).

    Instead of listening or reading Beck’s distorted claims about Aslan, listen to the author himself explain what his credentials are in this interview:

    Stuff it Vicky, you are a proven liar and a hypocrite. Speaking of double standards, you are always in Becks smearing him, personally attacking him, yet if someone does that to you in the slightest way on your bugsite, you have a hissy fit and erase their post or don’t allow it to post at all. You are the biggest crybaby bully I have ever met.

    “Hit piece?” The American Conservative writes:

    There is nothing remotely new in Aslan’s book. Its general outlines very closely follow the story told by John Dominic Crossan in his 1994 book Jesus: A Revolutionary Biography, which was itself a kind of summation of work Crossan and his colleagues had been doing for the previous quarter-century. (Aslan is more prone to see Jesus as a consciously political revolutionary than Crossan, who writes of Jesus’s message, “It did not invite a political revolution but envisaged a social one at imagination’s most dangerous depths” [196]; but in other respects Aslan’s picture of Jesus so closely resembles Crossan’s that it’s peculiar, at least, to see the earlier book go barely acknowledged in those notes.) Aslan makes no new discoveries, and makes no arguments that haven’t already been made — in some cases very long ago.

    I guess Jesus being “hit” by Christians is fine; just can’t have the words repeated by a Muslim.

    It was a retorical, something you obviously have no clue about. The only thing you have is my use of period instead of a question mark. You are a moron.

    another false teacher. Jesus  said watch out for these people. for  they will come in my
    name and teach my word but do not believe them because they are false teachers of the word.
