Crossan on the Nativity

Beliefnet has this story:

The Nativity Story's True Message
John Dominic Crossan on the characters in Jesus' birth story--the Magi, shepherds, angels--as anti-Roman protesters.
Interview by Deborah Caldwell

One thought that amuses me about the major new stress in Crossan on Paul and early Christianity as anti- Roman Empire is that this brings Crossan closer to Wright than ever before, does it not?

Don't miss the links to other interesting material from Crossan on the same page.
