Jesus The Man – Filmmaker Paul Verhoeven


Filmmaker Paul Verhoeven’s project Jesus of Nazareth – a realistic portrait … The intro in dutch on his fascination for ‘Jesus the man’, study in the Jesus Seminar, and making the book 10 years ago (based on interviews with Rob van Scheers) – a discussion with Paul Verhoeven invited by the Institute of Religious Studies at the Leiden University on March 31 , 2009 in the Lokhorst church in Leiden , Holland – Part 1 , filmed with a Sony T500 compact camera.

NL – 10 jaar geleden – dinsdag 31 maart 2009 – kwam regisseur en schrijver Paul Verhoeven op uitnodiging van het Instituut der Godsdienstwetenschappen van de Leidse universiteit naar Leiden , om te praten over zijn boek ‘Jezus van Nazaret’ …. ‘een realistisch portret’ dat eind 2008 was uitgegeven (geschreven in samenspraak met Rob van Scheers).

Naast cinema kent Nederlands grootste filmregisseur Paul Verhoeven nóg een levenslange fascinatie: Jezus van Nazareth. Na zijn vertrek uit Nederland in 1985 meldde hij zich daarom in Californië aan bij het zogeheten Jesus Seminar, een hoog aangeslagen wetenschappelijke denktank van zo’n zeventig eminente professoren in godgeleerdheid, filosofie, linguïstiek en bijbelgeschiedenis, opgericht door Amerika’s meest vooraanstaande liberale exegeet Robert W. Funk.
Als enige niet-theoloog mocht Verhoeven aanschuiven bij de discussies die tot doel hadden de historische figuur Jezus van de mythische bijbelfiguur Jezus te bevrijden, hem te ontdoen van tweeduizend jaar christelijke inkleuring. Als bijdrage aan dit onderzoek schreef Paul Verhoeven – in Leiden afgestudeerd in wis- en natuurkunde – vele wetenschappelijke papers die vervolgens de basis vormden voor zijn spraakmakende boek Jezus van Nazaret – inmiddels in meerdere vertalingen uitgegeven .

Er werd een discussie gevoerd tussen Paul Verhoeven en een panel bestaande uit Prof. Zangenberg, dr. Hofstee en drie studenten in de Lokhorstkerk te Leiden. Hier een eerste deel van mijn reportage : de introductie door Paul Verhoeven over zijn levenslange project en de totstandkoming van het boek – gefilmd met een Sony T500 compact camera.
