Quotes | By
The following are quotes by Fitzgerald:

Christianity before the gospels were written, worships a Jesus that’s very different from the Jesus or ‘Jesuses’, if you will, that came after the gospels were written towards the end of the first century and the beginning of the second century. That was one of the red flags that got me, when I first got interested in the subject [about 10 years ago].”

“Biblical scholars, being predominately Christian Biblical scholars, are not just dependent upon him [Jesus] for their salvation, they are dependent upon him for their salaries.”
— David Fitzgerald (2015), response (4:15-) to query about why Jesus mythicism is not taken seriously by the academic community [2]
