The sifting through centuries of myth-making, Reza Aslan casts a new light on one of the most influential and enigmatic figures by examining Jesus in the context of the era in which he lived: the age of fanaticism, of an era filled with apocalyptic fervourThe balancing of the Jesus of the Gospels against historical sources, Aslan describes a complex figure: a man of peace who exhorted his disciples to arm themselves; an exorcist and of the healing faith who exhorted his disciples to keep his identity secret; and a seditious “King of the Jews”, whose promise of the liberation of Rome became vacant in his life.Aslan examines the reasons why the early Church prefers to promulgate an image of Jesus as a peaceful spiritual teacher rather than a politically conscious and revolutionary one, and grappling with the enigma of Jesus’ own self-understanding.The result is a reflection, elegantly written biography with the pulse of the rapid evolution of the novel, and singularly superb portrait of a man, an era and the birth of a religion.
