O'Reilly Addresses Critics of "Killing Jesus"

Bill O’Reilly’s newest book “Killing Jesus” was released today, and the Factor host is already receiving criticism. “I’m getting mail telling me I’m going to Hell, which I thought was apparent. Why bother to tell me?” O’Reilly joked on tonight’s show.

O'Reilly said the main problem secularists have with the book is that he doesn’t proclaim Jesus to be the messiah. Pastor Robert Jeffress, who has read the book, defended O’Reilly. “People have to understand this is not a theological book, it’s a historical book.”

Pastor Jeffress said, “What you do and what’s going to drive the secularists crazy, Bill, is you let Jesus tell the truth about himself and you don’t sugarcoat the fact that he claimed to be God.”
