J. P. Holding deals with the cults of Mithra, Orisis, and others in this clip and how they are falsely utilized by “Jesus Mythicists.” Here’s the YouTube description of the clip.
Craig Johnson interviews JP Holding on the existence of Jesus. Holding has written a more comprehensive and scholarly book on the existence of Jesus (author of “Shattering the Christ Myth” ) than Bart Ehrman (author of “Did Jesus Exist?” ), although Ehrman (who is NOT a Christian) would agree with Holding that a historical Jesus existed. Unfortunately, the Internet is filled with conspiracy theories about Jesus’ existence. Some radical atheists actually believe that Jesus did not exist.
