The Jesus Sayings
The Quest For His Authentic MessageBook - 2008
Not all of the words attributed to Jesus were actually spoken by him, nor did he teach all of the doctrines taught as part of the Christian tradition. The canonical gospels mix fact and fiction, and many of Jesus' sayings were lost for 2,000 years. So what did Jesus, or Yeshua, as he was known to his followers, really teach? Recent archaeological work has uncovered ancient texts that shed astonishing new light on the teachings of Jesus; moreover, modern scholarship has revealed the source material for the New Testament gospels. Here, journalist Rex Weyler presents an accessible overview of these important new finds, using recent discoveries to give a fresh view of Jesus' sayings and message. Weyler approaches this controversial subject with an open, objective, and thoughtful mind, offering a book that entertains, enlightens, and inspires seekers from all spiritual traditions.
