Synopsis: Bible scholars dissect the gospels to separate the “Jesus of history” from the “Christ of faith.” This provocative study argues that the biblical characters of Jesus and David should be viewed not as historical figures, but as embodiments of Babylonian, Egyptian and Near Eastern mythology.
From the Hardcover edition.

Book Description Pimlico, Great Britain, 2007. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Light shelf wear. Pages browned with age and have some spotting. No inscriptions. Binding firm.Since the eighteenth century, scholars and historians studying the texts of the Bible have attempted to distil historical facts and biography from the mythology and miracles described there. That trend continues into the present day, as scholars dissect the gospels and other early Christian writings to seperate the 'Jesus of history' from the 'Christ of faith'. But in The Messiah Myth Thomas L. Thompson argues that the quest for the historical Jesus is beside the point, since the Jesus of the gospels never existed. Size: 9.25"/6".
