Jesus - A Very Jewish Myth
Did Jesus really exist? There are many views about the origin of the Jesus story. This book makes the case for the Jesus story having developed out of existing Jewish messianic and apocalyptic literature and beliefs, with no historical person at the core of the story.
This is an excellent book for both Christians and non-Christians, and actually takes a very close look at much of the symbolism and meaning of the New Testament scriptures in ways that will be very familiar to Christians.
Readers will be introduced to all of the major points in the discussion of the historicity of Jesus, as well as all of the primary source materials that underly this topic. There is no other book on Jesus historicity that provides as much access to the relevant source materials.
