ABOUT THE BOOK
30 scandals uncovered in historical sourcesIf tabloid newspapers had existed during the first century, Jesus would have featured constantly in the headlines, linked with scandals of all kinds. Details of these were recorded in historical documents by both his friends and his enemies. They provide insights into Jesus' life and teaching that have been obscured by the centuries. They tell us what his contemporaries really thought. These scandals include:
- his parentage and accusations of alcohol abuse and fraudulent miracles
- the dubious status of his followers - poorly educated, ex-prostitutes and the certifiably mad
- his anti-religious teaching on temple practices, eternal torment, easy divorces and judgement in this life
- his thoughts of suicide, shameful execution and impossible resurrection
Suitable for house group leaders or discussion starters.
