If Jesus did not die on the cross, as Dr Barbara Thiering has maintained in her two previous books, 'Jesus the Man' and 'Jesus of the Apocalypse', what was his role in the years following 33 AD, and what part did he play in the religious movement we now call Christianity?
In 'The Book That Jesus Wrote' the author takes yet another bold, controversial step in her unravelling of the New Testament, suggesting that the Book of John was the work of Jesus himself, assisted by his Gentile friend Philip. His sense of humour, the recollection of his own life and his struggle to move away from strict Judaism and to open the door for a new religious philosophy and structure all emerge as clues in his writing.
The result is a clear and rational explanation of how Christianity came into being, and how Jesus himself was an active and inspirational figure behind its emergence both in the Middle East and in Western Europe.
