Who is the man Jesus which the tales of the New Testament speak of? In this momentous book, finally translated in to French, Geza Vermes strays far from the beaten track to carry out a rigorous investigation. He invites us to wind back the clock to the origins of Christianity, to delve into the writing of the first Christian communities, starting at the most complex and later representation of Jesus proposed in John’s Gospel, through to that offered in Mark’s Gospel. This journey back in time through the history of texts introduces us to several versions of Jesus, and beneath the layers of divinisation presents one of a charismatic Palestinian prophet, a miracle worker, as were many at his time, the victim of a faction of priests and the Roman occupation. But how did the figure of this Galilean hero transform into one of a divine saviour? The investigation of this master of intertestamental literature and Dead Sea manuscript specialist, offers new hypotheses on the identity of the man Jesus. TABLE OF CONTENTS • John: an evangelist like no other • John’s Jesus: messianic figure or stranger returned from heaven • Paul, the apostle who never met Jesus • Paul’s Christ: Son of God and universal redeemer of humankind • The Jesus of the Acts of the Apostles: Prophet, Lord and Christ • The Jesus of the synoptic gospels: healer and charismatic master, in the fervour of the eschatological expectation • Hidden behind the Gospels, the true Jesus • The true Jesus at the dawn of the third millennium
