How Would Jesus Vote?

13/04/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

So the election has been called for May 6th and the next few weeks will see the airwaves thick with clichéd slogans, billboards festooned with glossy posters and armies of canvassers interrupting peaceful evenings. But is there anything worth voting for, and how would a certain preacher from Galilee have acted if he found himself (somewhat bizarrely) in our shoes today? More ...

Don’t laugh, Jesus went by Donkey

29/03/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Said a supposedly humorous car sticker from the 80s, and today is the day that people celebrate the memory of Jesus’ most famous road trip - his journey into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. The symbolism of Jesus’ mode of transport is largely lost on us today. Almost no-one in the west travels on animals today, let alone going by donkey, and even in the middle east donkeys tend to be used to carry goods rather than passengers. More ...

The earthquake in Haiti this week has injured, made homeless or killed up to three million people according to early news reports. How can God allow this to happen? More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 5: Gospel of Judas

25/09/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

Judas is an unusual historical figure. For the last 2000 years he has been considered the most hated man in history, yet we know almost nothing about him. Even the manner of his death is disputed. Matthew’s gospel has him die by his own hand. Acts finds him falling over in a field and bursting his intestines. Some historians even suggest that Judas never actually existed. More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 3: The Gospel of Thomas

01/07/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Perhaps the most famous of the hidden gospels is the Gospel of Thomas. We've known about it ever since it was written, but it has only been more recently when we discovered what it actually said. In 1945 a copy of Thomas' Gospel turned up in Nag Hammadi, Egypt, amongst a collection of other ancient documents, and closer study revealed that a few fragments from it had already been found 50 years earlier.

The Hidden Gospels - Part 1

26/03/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

If you had had asked anyone twenty years ago how many gospels there were, almost everyone would have given you the same reply – “four”. These days things are very different. Dan Brown’s religious conspiracy theory novel, “The DaVinci Code” opened the eyes to millions of people to the fact that there were whole bunch of gospels that they had never even heard of. Suddenly all kinds of people were claiming that there was all sorts of information about Jesus that the general public never knew existed. More ...

Jesus, Hell and the Primary School

15/02/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (19) Comments

Do you go to Hell if you don’t believe in Jesus? That was what one five year old told her classmate recently. When her friend burst into tears, their teacher stepped in and told the girl, Jasmine Cain, that such behaviour was unacceptable. Later that afternoon Jasmine’s mother picked up her from school only for Jasmine to burst into tears as she explained what had happened. More ...

Are Jesus and Dracula the same person? The seven key clues….

02/02/09 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (12) Comments

Once bitten forever smitten. Or so it would seem. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 14 year-old fan of Twilight, a Victorian reader of Bram Stoker, or a medieval French clegyman writing a report of unsettling happenings in your parish. Once you’ve glimpsed the pale and interesting face of vampirism, you fall under its spell. There can have been few things more resilient, more contagious, or more epidemic in the human imagination, you might think, than the idea of vampires. More ...

The Cross and the Thoroughly Pissed Off

09/11/08 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (0) Comments

Today they pretty much crucified Christianity. Buried it. In the place where its founder is supposed to have been crucified, and buried, his followers conspired to betray him all over again. With a Glaswegian Kiss. At the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem, a mass brawl broke out between Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks, who traded kicks and punches at the shrine, until the Israeli Police started making arrests.
