    A 4 page research paper that which addresses traditional Christian dogma that asserts that the Bible is literally true and that the story of Jesus' life, death and resurrection are unique. However, examination of ancient myth and Jewish tradition shows that this is not the case. Early Christians not only drew heavily on Hebrew scripture in describing the life of Christ, they also borrowed heavily from the pagan religions that they presumed to abhor. It seems reasonable to presume that this practice gave the new religion a ring of authenticity with various populations as it was not very different from the religions that preceded it. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
