9780979963100: Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of the Christ

Was Jesus Christ truly the divine Son of God who walked the earth 2,000 years ago? How can we be sure the gospel story is an accurate and infallibly recorded historical account? When the gospels are examined scientifically, can we truthfully uphold them as "inerrant?" Is it possible to assert honestly and ethically that the Bible is the inspired Word of God?

The answers to these questions and many more may surprise and shock you! Is the New Testament a "historical record" or "factual biography" of what really happened, or a tool for the priesthood to lay down doctrines and dogma as they were developed over the centuries?

  • Was Jesus the Jewish Messiah?
  • Was Christ the Savior of the World?

From the Author:

Please note that this is a new cover and slightly revised edition of the same book with the light-blue cover and solar flare in the center.

I wrote this book, Who Was Jesus?, after many people asked me to produce a simple and easy-to-read introduction to the problems with the New Testament, both in its creation/history and within the text itself. This book has been deemed "kinder and gentler" by one Christian apologist, as it more-or-less gently leads the reader from a neutral recitation of the gospel story according to Matthew, proceeding through the other gospels and showing how they differ, into the problems with the dating of the canonical gospels, as well as the lack of mention of Jesus Christ, Christians or Christianity in the works of dozens of writers during the first and second centuries, and so on.

This book differs from my others in that it focuses on the Christian texts themselves, mainly limited to the four canonical gospels, with only a few, brief discussions relating some comparative mythology. It contains information that was difficult to find and does not appear in my other works, such as the writings of early Church fathers in which they discuss the creation of the canonical gospels as having taken place during what we now call the second century.

The book is also unique in that it uses the works of many well-respected Christian authorities and apologists, as well as New Testament scholars and theologians, revealing a strain of critical scholarship that few laymen are familiar with.

Many people have found it useful to provide copies of Who Was Jesus? to their Christian friends and family members, so they too can learn about the problems with the New Testament that scholars have addressed over the past several centuries into the most modern times.

From the Inside Flap:

In the nearly two millennia since the story of Jesus Christ began to be circulated, millions of people have wondered, "Who is Jesus Christ?" Much ink has been spilled, and many thousands of books have been written about this grandest of gods and men, in the quest to portray the "real Jesus." Practically every personality type and special interest group has been able to find a reflection of itself in Jesus, and countless people have looked to Christ as their example, inspiration and champion. Many millions, in fact, are quite convinced that Christ is indeed the God of the universe who came to Earth in a human body 2,000 years ago. Still others have settled into a comfortable position that Jesus was a "nice guy" and a "great leader" or a "political rebel" who fought for the underdog. These individuals often believe that Jesus was simply a human being, not God, but that his enthusiastic followers added a series of fairytales to his biography after his death. A minority of others have looked at the gospel story with a jaundiced eye and found little evidence to be convinced of either of these two perspectives.
