Guiding us via a wealthy tapestry of latest discoveries and historic scriptures, The Jewish Gospels makes the strong case that our traditional understandings of Jesus and of the origins of Christianity are flawed. In Boyarin’s scrupulously illustrated account, the arriving of the Messiah used to be totally imagined within the historic Jewish texts.

Jesus and his fans, Boyarin indicates, have been easily Jewish. What got here to be referred to as Christianity got here a lot later, as spiritual and political leaders sought to impose a brand new non secular orthodoxy that used to be now not current on the time of Jesus’s life.
In the vein of Elaine Pagels’s The Gnostic Gospels, here's a outstanding new paintings that might holiday open a few of our culture’s so much adored assumptions.
