The Jesus the Jews Never Knew

$20.00

Description

The ancient Jews never heard of Jesus of Nazareth. That is the startling conclusion of a comprehensive investigation of Jewish records surviving from antiquity. Every literary source ever advanced by serious scholars as being a reference to the historical Jesus is examined and found to be nothing of the sort, except for the latest layers of the Babylonian Talmud. Clearly, those references were reactions to Christianity, not to Christ.

The Jesus the Jews never knew provides a fascinating look into the world in which the gospels were invented. Every literary source ever advanced by serious scholars as being a reference to a historical Jesus is examined and found to be nothing of the sort.
