Crucifixion of the Jews: Book 2

Historian Wellhausen on Jesus

“Jesus was not a Christian: he was a Jew. He did not preach a new faith, but taught men to do the will of God; and, in his opinion, as also in that of the Jews, the will of God was to be found in the Law of Moses and in the other books of Scripture.”1
