Hagee: Jesus Didn't Come as Messiah

Gentle reader KevinK suggests to us that John Hagee may have surpassed Pat Robertson as World's Most Embarrassing Christian. This video clip may just prove that he has:

Well, we guess that Jesus' saying "I am" to the high priest's question, "Are you the Christ [Messiah]" isn't claiming to be Messiah after all.

Hagee's hyper-idiosyncratic dispensationalism is super-duper embarrassing. We just hope that no one notices.

There's no way you believe that Jesus actually said that. Jesus Smeinar debunked all of those myths years ago!

"destined to generate lively discussions among Christians the world over"

I would guess that "lively discussions" is a euphemism.

I don't know. I'm going to reserve judgment until I have more to judge it on. Perhaps he's entertaining possible arguments for the sake of argument. Believe me, I cannot stand Hagee. His theology is severely flawed on several levels. But this seems unlike him.

A tired joke is appropriate here:

It depends on what your definition of the word "is" is.

I hope that isn't the actually book in the video. It looks to be about 80 - 100 pages. I mean if you are going to dispell Jesus in one solitary volume, at least show some convincing girth. When you have writers such as R.C. Foster that write over 1000 pages on Jesus as the Christ, I would think it would take at least as many pages to disprove that material. (Or is that the point, that you can't disprove it.)

KevinK said... lists the book @ 207 pages. Still not enough to dispell Jesus.

Not having investigated further (life is too short to waste it on the details of nuts like Hagee), we assume that Hagee is operating on a rarefied definition of what it would mean for Jesus to present himself to Israel as messiah. That's why we call this hyper-idiosyncratic dispensationalism, the kind of approach to salvation history that slices and dices it into self-contained units of relatively unrelated rules, contracts and outcomes.

Hi John ,

Perhaps Mr. Hagee "saw the light" and is in the process of acquiring a new respect for the truth? Want some clarifying data from an unexpected source?

Patience and humility...

If you'd like some stunning insights into what's happening with the synchronicity of the recent comet and Nostradamus' Lost Book buzz, then read the article at the following link. I demonstrate significant internal evidence from these Lost Book images that they were indeed dictated by Nostradamus and that they encode much more earthshaking revelations than so far published.
