The Christ Files: A Search for the Real Jesus

There is a documentary on Jesus that looks absolutely brilliant. It is called The Christ Files and it is by John Dickson (an excellent NT scholar, pastor, and evangelist in Sydney Australia and associate in the department of Ancient History at Macquarie University). Generally I tire of endless documentaries which usually regurgitate the same theories, the same cohort of "experts", and the same prosaic overstatements. But this one looks genuinely good. Anything that Dickson writes is worth reading. The section rugby is great too!

I find Charlesworth's assumption of Essenes at Qumran old-fashioned.
And have I been looking at a dying breed of experts?
