My Depiction of Jesus of Nazareth

In CS Lewis’ famous “trilemma” he argued that Jesus must have either been deluded, evil, or actually divine. I believe that if the fellow existed at all then he was deluded. This is as I am near certain he wasn’t who he said he was, and I doubt he did what he did out of malice, because if that were so, I think he  would have avoided getting himself killed.

In my book, I give a fantasized account of just how deluded Jesus really was. However, by no means is he intended to be seen as stupid. He wouldn’t have been able to wiggle out of the types of verbal traps the Pharisees set for him without being exceptionally clever (I’ll detail this use of “third options” in a further post). If I have succeeded with “The Gospel of the Rauschmonstrum” the readers will laugh at the absurdity of the story-line, while saddened by how the Rauschmonstrum manipulates Jesus off to his bloody end.
