AwakenereBook - 2014
Who is Jesus? Is he the one described by Paulus and the evangelists in the Bible? Or can a clearer picture of the real person Jesus emerge if one limits oneself to read only what historical data points at being plausible direct quotes? If Jesus, or Yeshua as his name was in his native tongue Aramaic, would have written his gospel himself, how would that book be? This book is a proposal for how His own gospel could have been. It is based on what modern history has revealed about the time of His life, and is also based on the parts of religious scripture that seem to be possible to confirm historically. Because historical data, despite new findings, are still extremely scarce, the book is naturally mostly pure fiction, and it is up to you, the reader of this book, to assess what you are willing to accept and what you feel you must reject. In either case, this book can hopefully inspire you to search for more information about the true Yeshua bar Yosef from Nazareth, the poor wood-worker from an obscure little village in a remote part of the Roman Empire that with his words and deeds has influenced mankind for two millennia.
