This is something I posted yesterday on the Internet Infidels discussion board:
Several months ago, I wrote a rather long post on Debunking Christianity which defended the idea that Paul never clearly speaks of Jesus as a man on earth. I just had a look at chapter 6 of JP Holding's book "Shattering the Christ Myth" which you can view here.
Holding says that the silence in Paul isn't all that surprising, given the fact that Paul lived in a "high context" society (one which assumed lots of insider knowledge in communication) while we live in a "low context" society (which is the opposite of the former).
So I'm posing the question: What do we make of Paul's silence?
