The Trinity isn't particularly Christian. It comes from Plotinus.

Jesus was a great teacher. Cut out all the mythology, and there's a lot that is valuable. I often think Christianity would be better if they stuck to the words of Jesus and got rid of the dogma.

Something to consider. Did Pontius Pilate really say he found nothing wrong with Jesus and washed his hands? And "the whole people" say that his blood was on them. And their children? That sounds like a later addition to justify centuries of slaughter.

"Zealot" by Reza Aslan is an excellent and well-researched book. Well worth a read.
