Description

This book is an extraordinary and provocative explanation of one of history's great unsolved mysteries: who - or what - was Jesus? The Gospels provide no direct answers, and both the life of Jesus as it has been recorded for us. and the teachings and activities of the Apostles, are surrounded by extraordinary contradictions and baffling inconsistencies. Salibi invites the reader to join him on a voyage of historical discovery to determine tile true identity of the founder of Christianity. Where did Jesus really come from? Why do the Gospels pass over the greater part of his life? And, what of the principal founders of tile Christian Church - St Peter and St Paul? It is known that after his conversion Paul went directly to Arabia rather than journeying to the apparent source and seat of the Christian movement, Jerusalem. Why? What did Paul discover in Arabia? What was the real source of tension and friction between Paul and Peter? What did Paul know about tile real Jesus story, which Peter at all costs wanted to keep hidden? What deal was eventually struck between them?

No reader can fail to he carried along by the tantalizing search for clues as Salibi attempts to unravel history's best-kept secret - the true identity of Jesus.
