 [No title]
In spite of all this, Renan, willing to soothe the prejudice of his time, takes the ground that the four canonical gospels are authentic, that they date from the first century, that the authors were, generally speaking, those to whom they are attributed; but he insists that their historic value is very diverse.
Undoubtedly Renan gave an honest transcript of his mind, the road his thought had followed, the reasons in their order that had occurred to him, the criticisms born of thought, and the qualifications, softening phrases, children of old sentiments and emotions that had not entirely passed away.
Renan was a man of most excellent temper; candid; not striving for victory, but for truth; conquering, as far as he could, the old superstitions; not entirely free, it may be, but believing himself to be so.

 Ernest Renan’s Assessment of Jesus Christ : Christian Courier
Joseph Ernest Renan (1823-92) was a philosopher, theologian, and orientalist.
In a sentimental, rather theatrical fashion, Renan argued that the post-resurrection “appearances” of the Lord were merely the result of ardent expectations, combined with excited nerves, on the part of Jesus’ followers.
Second, Renan’s assessments of Jesus are at variance with a recently concocted notion that Christ “plotted and schemed” to feign his death so as to convince his peers that he was the Messiah (Schonfield, 155).

According to Renan, the raising of Lazarus was a trick, planned by the subject of the pretended miracle with the aid of Martha and Mary.
His father Joseph and his mother Mary were people in humble circumstances, artisans living by their labor, in the state so common in the East, which is neither ease nor poverty.

The crisis came as the time approached for his ordination, and disregarding the grief of his mother and the entreaty of his teacher, he left the seminary on Oct. 6, 1845, firmly convinced that he could remain true to Christ only by separating from the Church.
The great mistake of Jesus with Renan was to forget that the ideal is fundamentally ever a utopia and in conflict with the material for realization loses its purity.
The life of Renan was essentially twofold; he was, on the one hand, the serious and accurate scholar, on the other, a wit and a dillettante.

It was also on this date, February 27, 1823, that French scholar Joseph Ernest Renan was born in Trier, Brittany, to a Breton father and a Gascon mother.
Although Renan was a Pantheist with Agnostic tendencies, he would still refer to "God" and the divinity (in the Romantic sense) of Jesus in his writings.
While decrying his skepticism with the vehemence of the intellectually vulnerable, even his detractors had to admit, "Renan's personal life was irreproachable."** Renan died in Paris on 2 October 1892 at age 69.

In one tomb were found the names of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, another Mary (suggested to be Mary Magdalene), a Matthew and a Juda son of Jesus.
Joseph was the second most common male name and Mary the most common amongst women, this in itself is sufficient evidence to throw doubt on the recently found tomb of 'Jesus, Mary and Joseph', as it is like finding the gravestone of Mr and Mrs John Smith!
In passing, it is worth noting that we do not know for sure if Jesus was born in a stable surrounded by animals, only that he was laid in a feed trough.

David Friedrich Strauss, another 19th-century German theologian, in his 1835 book "Life of Jesus Critically Examined," called the Jesus presented in the Gospels little more than myth intended to further a religious viewpoint.
Joseph Ernst Renan, a 19th-century French historian and biblical scholar, added to this radical redefinition of Jesus by describing him as a gifted preacher, but nothing more.
But the scholar who is generally thought of as having brought the 19th-century quest for the historical Jesus to a close was, in fact, more a man of the 20th century.

 The Harbinger. The Phenomenon of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
In this respect, he was not in step with those modern thinkers who offer a truly cosmic perspective in which humankind is merely a fleeting event in this material universe.
His mysticism reminds one of the cosmic visions of Joseph Ernest Renan (1823-1892) and Miguel de Unamuno (1864-1936).
With bitter irony, it was the silenced Teilhard who had committed himself to the fact of evolution as well as the indisputable powers of science, reason and free inquiry.

That is hardly correct, for we have a modern analogy to Koheleth (as Renan himself suggests) in Heine [Heinrich Heine 1797 - 1856 (German poet and essayist)], who looks upon the world in the same smiling manner.
While thoroughly assimilating the culture and surroundings of his age, Heine's humor and general type of mind are characteristically Jewish.

At one time, those who allowed any distinction between Jesus and the Christ were thought to be tainted by Modernism.
The studies of David Friedrich Strauss (1835), Joseph Ernest Renan (1863) and Albert Schweitzer (1906) saw little or no continuity between the Christ of the Gospel, seen as the risen Lord and proclaimed as such in the Church, and the itinerant prophet, Jesus of Nazareth.
The Catholic response rejected such a distinction because, it was believed, the two are one and the same.
