Description & Features+
*** Jesus discovered in the historical record ***
This is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1700 years. This is the book that will rock the foundations of Christianity as we know it - for the biblical Jesus has at last been found in the historical record.
We now know who Jesus was, where he lived, and who his family were. Visit his city, see the ruins of his citadel, gaze upon his statue, handle his coins. In reality, Jesus was a son of King Abgarus V of Edessa, a princeling with a small realm, a large treasury, and even bigger ambitions. But the wise prince of northern Syria came up against an intractable Rome and his many plans for revolution crumbled to dust. As readers might imagine, the true history of this region undermines much of the biblical fairy-story that the gospel authors crafted, and so Christianity will never be the same again.
The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. Jesus was crucified wearing this same crown, because he was a king of Edessa. In fact, Jesus was crucified in the Kidron Valley along with two other leaders of the revolt, but was taken down early and survived, just as the history of Josephus Flavius relates.
This is a scholarly study of all the available historical evidence, including the Tanakh, Talmud, Josephus Flavius, the Roman historians, and venerable Syriac historians like Moses of Chorene and Yohannes Drasxanakertci.
This is the final book in a trilogy, and so we suggest that readers start with 'Cleopatra to Christ' and then 'King Jesus'. The wait before arriving at the last episode in the trilogy will be worthwhile, for if a book could be valued on its 'eureka moments' then this final book would be priceless.
Sequel to: 'King Jesus'
A message to readers from the author:
A review of this book by Thomas Verenna is now on many web-pages. Please note that Thomas Verenna is not an academic, he is a failed student with a religious axe to grind. Verenna has admitted that he has not even read this book, and created his poor review from hearsay and rumour. Some of Verenna's many errors include:
Verenna says that Ellis absurdly conflates four kings into one. Yet in reality, the book does not even mention two of the kings that Verenna cites.
Verenna says that Ellis does not realize and does mention, the fact that Adiabene and Edessa are two separate locations. Yet in reality, the juxtaposition between Adiabene and Edessa is the central topic of the entire book.
Verenna says that Queen Helena was never the Queen of the Jews. Yet Queen Helena was a Jewess who saved Judaea from famine, furnished the Temple of Jerusalem, and owned the largest palace and tomb in Jerusalem. Was she not, perforce, the defacto Queen of Judaea?
Verenna says that King Abgar bar Manu VI could not be the biblical Jesus, as Ellis claims, because he lived in the wrong era. Yet in reality, Ellis never mentions King Abgar bar Manu VI - not once.
As readers can probably see, the so-called review of 'Jesus, King of Edessa' by Thomas Verenna is a travesty, designed to undermine scholarly research into the life of Jesus. The reality is very different, for 'Jesus, King of Edessa' can and does prove that the biblical Jesus was actually a well-known monarch of Edessa, whose real life and times have been effectively erased from history by Josephus Flavius and a succession of later Christian chroniclers.
