Was Jesus Christ truly the divine Son of God who walked the earth 2,000 years ago? How can we be sure the gospel story is an accurate and infallibly recorded historical account? When the gospels are examined scientifically, can we truthfully uphold them as "inerrant?" Is it possible to assert honestly and ethically that the Bible is the inspired Word of God? The answers to these questions and many more may surprise and shock you! Is the New Testament a "historical record" or "factual biography" of what really happened, or a tool for the priesthood to lay down doctrines and dogma as they were developed over the centuries?Was Jesus the Jewish Messiah? Was Christ the Savior of the World? Was He a Cynic sage or a political rebel? Or was Jesus Christ something altogether different?Subjects in this fascinating "CSI-style" investigation by controversial independent scholar of religious history D.M. Murdock aka "Acharya S" include:Foreword by Dr. Robert M.
