Géza Vermès - The Changing Faces of Jesus. PDF

PDF Vermes is internationally recognized for pioneering biblical scholarship as well as for the definitive English translation of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Now he takes readers on a journey thru the New Testament to reveal the true historical figure of Jesus hidden beneath the oldest Gospels. How was this Palestinian charismatic transformed by later generations into the heavenly savior elaborated by the Christian Church? Vermes acts as a sensitive, learned & thought-provoking guide. His account presents the fruit of both a lifetime's scholarship & a lifelong quest to understand a solitary giant among Jewish prophets.
