did Jesus use cold reading to fool simpletons?
Cold Reading. Most of what Jesus did was what is known in the mentalism trade as cold reading, where you literally “read” someone “cold,”–knowing nothing about them. He asks lots of questions and makes numerous statements, some general and some specific, and sees what sticks. Most of the time he is wrong. His subjects visibly nod their heads “no.” But, as noted above, he only needs an occasional hit to convince his clientele he is genuine. Sometimes he gets lucky, and as mentalists note, you always take credit for lucky hits.
