Description - Christian Beginnings by Dr Geza Vermes

A revolutionary account of one of the most famous and influential figures in world history

The creation of the Christian Church is one of the most important stories in the development of the world's history, yet one of the least understood.

With a forensic, brilliant re-examination of all the key surviving texts of early Christianity, Geza Vermes illuminates the origins of a faith and traces the evolution of the figure of Jesus from the man he was - a prophet in the tradition of other Jewish holy men of the Old Testament - to what he came to represent- a mysterious, otherworldly being at the heart of the official state religion of the Roman Empire. Christian Beginnings pulls apart myths and misunderstandings to focus on the true figure of Jesus, and the birth of one of the world's major religions.
