'Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them,' exclaimed Jesus. In The Dionysian Gospel, Dennis R. MacDonald offers a provocative explanation of those scandalous words of Christ from the Fourth Gospel, employing mimesis criticism to argue that these words would have been instantly recognizable in ancient times as pertaining to the Greek god Dionysus in Euripides's play The Bacchae. MacDonald asserts that the earliest evangelist not only imitated Euripides but expected his readers to recognize Jesus as greater than Dionysos.
