1Sahil Badruddin = ""Two thousand years later, the Christ of Paul’s creation has utterly subsumed the Jesus of history. The memory of the revolutionary zealot
who walked across Galilee gathering an army of disciples with the goal of establishing the Kingdom of God on earth, the magnetic preacher
who defied the authority of the Temple priesthood in Jerusalem, the radical Jewish nationalist who challenged the Roman occupation and
lost, has been almost completely lost to history. That is a shame. Because the one thing any comprehensive study of the historical Jesus
should hopefully reveal is that Jesus of Nazareth—Jesus the man —is every bit as compelling, charismatic, and praiseworthy as Jesus the
Christ. He is, in short, someone worth believing in."-Zealot, Reza Aslan "
