    I am just curious. When you stress that the heart of the Christian claim
    has to do
    with the "historical reality of the crucifixion of Jesus" you didn't say
    anything about
    the resurrection of Jesus. Was that intended ? Do you see a historical
    of Jesus as essential too Christianity, or do you limit it to the
    crucifixion ? If you
    don't see a historical resurrection as essential, why don't you do that ?
