Set in Miller Frontispiece and 12 pages of colour plates The Authentic Gospel of Jesus is a fascinating portrait of the fiery and brilliant preacher who changed the world, Vermes returns to the historical reality of Jesus and his gospel to discover 'the genuine message of the Galilean master'. 'I have simply tried to put the record straight and to reconstruct a genuine likeness of Yeshua, son of Joseph of the Galilean townlet of Nazareth.’ This is the stated aim of Geza Vermes, ‘the greatest Jesus scholar of his generation’ (Sunday Telegraph), in his acclaimed reassessment of the fiery and brilliant Aramaic-speaking Jewish healer who changed the world. How, in the shadow of the Roman Empire, did a humble preacher and his followers spread his message so far and wide? Vermes returns to the preaching of Jesus as recorded in the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke to separate ‘the genuine message of the Galilean Master’ from the ensuing 2,000 years of theology and tradition. In so doing, he reaches the very heart of original Christian teachings and addresses many questions and misconceptions. What is the historical provenance of early Christian doctrine? How did Jesus see his own relationship to God? Was he seeking to preach only to his Jewish compatriots or was his mission to found a broader Church? Format: 26x17x4,5 cm. 468 pages.
