Despite thousands of books written on Jesus very few have fulfilled the need for an objective book about real life, flesh and blood Jesus. The 1984 Jesus: The evidence was a book that anyone, whatever their religious perspective, could respect. This new edition continues in this tradition - a compelling and dispassionate appraisal of the facts surrounding the founder of christianity - but is updated to draw on the past decades stunning archaeological and scholarly revelations. These include a Galilean fishing boat from the first century, discovery of houses of Jerusalem's priestly aritstocracy whom Jesus railed and the probable tomb of Caiaphas, the High Priest who instigated his death. Ian Wilson also examines D Barbara Thiering's controversial argument that Jesus did not die on the cross but in fact went on to marry Mary Magdalen and father a family.
