Reza Aslan on Jesus the Revolutionary
Season 19: Episode 8
You may have seen the infamous appearance Reza Aslan made on Fox News when the interviewer challenged him about why a Muslim would write a book about Jesus. His book, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, has been on the New York Times Best Sellers list for several months. On this episode, Reza Aslan tells the story of the man he calls "the most interesting person who ever lived."
For a video and an excerpt of the book....
The book is an attempt to trace the man - the carpenter - who would become a deity. In Aslan's eyes, Jesus is a political activist; a revolutionary.
