An interesting intellectual and spiritual experience is to read The Life of Jesus History of early Christianity; 1 Ernest Renan (1863) (excellent free edition) and just after, Zealot Reza Aslan, which attacks the very origins of Christianity: Jesus, the Apostles, St. Paul, and the birth of the Church made the career we know. Aslan has a theory: Jesus was a political and social revolution, against the priests of the Temple exploiters and colonization of Rome. The ruling class of his time and the Romans agreed to eliminate it. But he has risen from the Greek Jews after the destruction of the Temple and the Christian religion was born, Jesus was never intended.
All that stands and reads like a novel (the author is a historian but teaches “creative writing” to the university, there is a contradiction). This is where we see the vast distance between Renan, who knew all the languages of that time, had read everything, knew the country, and who has written from the inside of his subject, and robust popularize working with documents at second hand, and the world is much simpler.
It’s worth a read. The characters are strong, the situations are clear, the unfolding of the story is easy to follow. It is always good to get back in the lead chronology and part of the drama. But the mystery (how it was able to walk) is more opaque with Aslan, who has simply no explanation, Renan, which disqualifies miracles (including the resurrection) but shows how Jesus inspired the love.
