OST is closed for business but its spirit survives on my blog.
Let me be clear, I am not saying that there is no historical basis for peoples’ faith in Jesus. I would say everything has a history.
Faith in Jesus has a history. But I do not think that a person’s faith is founded on an uninterpreted historical fact.
Followers of Jesus are living a story (or narrative), a story that has been told in a number of different ways, by a number of different people, in a number of different places on the earth. In some ways, I would say that faith in Jesus has multiple histories, none of which are reducible to one uninterpreted historical fact.
