With page-turning suspense, Lena Einhorn details a new first century chronology that resolves many persistent mysteries about the historical Jesus and makes her conclusion impossible to ignore. Intrigued for most of her life by the mysteries surrounding the historical Jesus, Einhorn uses all her scientific skills to bring together New Testament writings as well as texts from contemporary Jewish and Roman historians, legends that survived within and outside Christianity during the first centuries after Jesus’ death, and, not least, psychology. The story starts from the beginning, with the basic question of whether Jesus really ever existed. From there it takes us to Jesus’ and childhood, ending with the crucifixion and the question of what happened afterwards.
