O’ Reilly, author of Killing Lincoln
and Killing Kennedy, declared that
Jesus merely started “a philosophy”1 and much of the biblical
narratives are allegorical and symbolic—not in fact real history. He also
suggested that Christians do not worship Jesus Christ but they worship the
“spirit of Jesus.”2 He’s convinced that Christ’s main undertaking
was to teach men how to live properly. I have no doubt that Christ’s moral
teaching is as important as it is profound, yet His primary mission was to die
to set men free. Many other skeptics and liberals have mounted quests for the
historical Jesus and have landed not so far from where O’ Reilly takes his
readers. In the end, the Bible holds, as the skeptics have found nothing. But skeptics
will continue to publish books about their new theories on the life and death
of Christ even though we have an infallible account of Him in the New
Bill O’ Reilly, few disbelieving sleuths believe that Jesus Christ died for the
ungodly (Romans 4:5) and rose from the grave in victory (1 Corinthians 15:1-4).
I do. And not only that, I know with full certainty.
Some contend Christ was a good teacher who died because of a tragic set of
accidents. Still a few others say that Christ never existed, thus He never died.
course, theories abound in cases of history where evidence is scarce. But, there exists not only deep layers of historical data for
the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, there are also potent logical
reasons why such must be the case.[see book that defends the Biblical view of Christ's death HERE]
The theories suggested by skeptics (O’ Reilly, Aslan, Ehrman,
etc.) not only have several faults, but what they pen, especially when it is
inconsistent with the scriptural accounts of Christ, cannot possibly be true. I maintain:

Jesus Christ died. He was crucified. Nevertheless, His illegal execution was
merely the beginning of a comprehensive transformation in history. Since Jesus’
death and resurrection, it often appears that the kingdom of man and the
kingdom of God have traded places. Christ's outlook, however, was a bold and
challenging assurance. The kingdom Jesus launched is the one we still see

extraordinary conspiracy of injustice, cruelty, as well as religious
and political interests sentenced an innocent man to the cruelest method
of execution ever developed. Yet, the target was no mere victim, He was
the Redeemer. Jesus as God and man came to die in the place of
Talmud, Mishnah, and Roman historians reveal that the Son of God was
illegally arrested, tried, and executed. How did such a thing come to
be? Who were the spectators, the authorities, frauds, and scoundrels?
Why was Christ’s arrest illegal under Hebrew law? What was it like at
Gethsemane during the arrest, or in the chambers of the chief priest as
the interrogations of Christ took place? What can an apologetics
approach, using Hebraic sources, tell us about the meaning of the last
words Jesus uttered on the cross? With the massive amount of evidence
for the resurrection of Christ, why can we go beyond probability to full
certainty that Christ is risen? This captivating work will answer those
questions in a way that will keep the pages turning.
InKilling Jesus Christ,
Robinson invites you to experience the most stunning injustice in the
history of civil law, conjoined to the supreme triumph of the power of
God, and the redemption provided by the death of Christ. The author
provides a chronological examination that includes a detailed look at
everything from rabbinical law to Roman justice to Christ's courtroom
declarations of His divinity.This
new volume furnishes a readable examination and analysis of the
indictments, preliminary proceedings, trials, and execution of
Jesus—great for apologetics and the defense of the faith.
With all the skeptical assaults on the meaning of the death, life, and resurrection of Christ,this
innovative volume is a must for every Christian, minister, and
apologist—it will be a book that you will give away many times to
friends. This is so because it is serious (it contains informed analysis
of relevant biblical truths), rational (it is well-argued), potent (it
holds the reader's attention through gripping illustrations), and
spiritual (it will set you ablaze for God).
death of Jesus stands at the very center of Christianity. Still, many
are confused about the reasons for the killing of Jesus, for many
deviant views are saturating the media.

The Arrest of Jesus Christ
The Various Trials of Christ: An Apologetic Approach
The Errors of the Trendy Critics (Bill O’Reilly, Reza Aslan, Bart Ehrman, etc.)
The First Good Friday and Its Redemptive Provision
The Ancient Rabbinic, Roman, and Non-biblical Historical Accounts

indeed an event. What is intended here is an account of the arrest,
trials, death, and resurrection of Christ which does justice to the full
sweep of biblical testimony and the ancient historical sources (the
Talmud, Mishnah, Targums, Dead Sea Scrolls, and Roman archives). What is
accomplished is something on the order of a vigorous defense of
Christian truth—an appropriation of the data, evidence, and facts within
a synthesis of the foundational necessity of Christian theism.
Killing Jesus Christis
a valuable resource for students of the gospels, and a highly
stimulating volume for all interested in Christian truth. The section on
the harmony of the Gospel accounts, regarding the trials and
crucifixion, alone makes this a valuable tool for apologetics. It will
be hard to come away from this book without a feeling of having been
enriched and challenged. This is a book that will be formative for
average Christians and scholars as well as students and pastors—the
author is clear, accessible and passionate.

is a review of Mike Robinson's book entitled, "Killing Christ:
Contesting Trendy Critics Regarding The Death and Resurrection of Jesus"
Mr. Robinson's whole premise in this book is the importance of getting
down to 'The Main Thing' regarding the death and resurrection of Jesus
Christ. Too often, writers give damning slight praise to the facts and
the ascribed meaning of the life, death, resurrection and ascension of
Jesus Christ, but praise disproportionately His so-called philosophy or
example. This is akin to gushing over the dishware on a Food Channel
presentation while ignoring the expert dishes prepared by equally expert
Chefs. CS Lewis said it best, perhaps, "A man who was merely a man and
said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher.
He would either be a lunatic--on the level with a man who says he is a
poached egg--or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your
choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or
something worse. You can shut him up for a fool or you can fall at his
feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing
nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that
open to us." [Mere Christianity by CS Lewis]. All disciplines must of
necessity use philosophy at some level, and they must at some point
exercise or acknowledge ethics, but neither makes them a Philosopher nor
an Ethicist. Why would skeptics, reviewers and deniers exercise such
effort to bypass the obvious import of Jesus' words and actions in order
to make Him symbolic or a mere example? How would such critics feel if
when checking out with their purchases at a Market, they were told what
wonderful symbols of Capitalism they were, and then instructed them to
return their purchases to their respective shelves so that 'real people'
might engage in the real commerce that they so ably exemplified?
Presuppositions and agendas are at play.
Even the most hostile
critics of Christianity admit the historicity of Jesus Christ, and must
contend with the large historical footprint that He personally has made
and that those who have had their lives unalterably changed by his Life,
Teaching, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, and Promised Return. Critics
would place their readers in middle of a sort of Chernobyl without the
benefit of a Radioactive sensing Geiger Counter, assuring them that
their reality is such-and-so, all the while their condition deteriorates
until it is too late to recover. Such is the unkindest cut of all.
Jesus was nothing if not deliberate; His Apostles and the New Testament
Writers have absorbed this same characteristic. Jesus was no accidental
savior. His resurrection was no beneficial after thought. The New
Testament in telling the truth discloses all the facts, not just the
ones that helped make their case. As an example, no one wanting to make
their case for a new religion in the Middle East of the time would have
women as the first witnesses of Christ's resurrection. Their testimonies
weren't often even accepted in courts. The New Testament doesn't play
at this modern invention of pretended neutrality; it has the Truth and
powerfully presents it to those who can't live without it.
will perhaps have to often endure Pop treatments of this weightiest of
all historical and spiritual matters, just as we are regularly bombarded
with advertisements, elections and verbose, self-made experts on every
subject under the sun, but the Truth is ever out there, and Mike
Robinson lets it stand unvarnished for the interested Reader. The Court
and what the Verdict will be in this matter will inevitably be in the
heart of the people who open themselves up to these matters in the
privacy of their homes or in the bustle of the marketplace. In the final
analysis, although the evidence is ample and satisfying in this case,
"only those who have ears, will hear."
For those readers with a sincere
heart who wish to know this most important of subjects, this is an
outstanding place to come and analyse the issues. For those who wish
material for messages and sermons, this is the resource you are looking
for. For those looking for an outstanding addition to their library or a
gift to a special someone, you have found it. And I'm sure the author
would be most pleased if his work found its way to that person to whom
it served as the gateway for the happiest of eternities.
