      Saint Saul: A Skeleton Key to the Historical Jesus

      Today's Price £16.68



      Product Description

      In this work, Donald Harman Akenson offers an account of what we can learn about Jesus by reading the letters of Paul - the only direct evidence of Jesus we have from before the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE.;Akenson dismisses the traditional method of searching for facts about Jesus by looking for parallels among the four gospels because they were handed down to us as a unit by a later generation. Instead, he painstakingly recreates the world of Christ, a time rich with ideas, prophets, factions, priests, savants, and god-drunk fanatics. He insistently stresses throughout the Jewishness of Jesus, referring to Jesus and Paul as Yeshua and Saul, as they were then known. Saul, although he did not know Yeshua personally, knew his most important followers, and wrote immediately after Yeshua's death. Saul's teachings were approved (though sometimes reluctantly) by Yeshua's brothers and other early leaders.
