This book presents a compelling argument that Jesus was never "crucified by the Romans" but slain and hanged from a tree, under Jewish law, as a heretic and blasphemer. It shows that behind the Virgin birth story lurks a darker tale of Mary the adulteress whose "divine child" was rejected by her husband, Joseph, as a bastard. And finally, it traces the accounts of Jesus' Resurrection to reveal that the earliest gospel (that of Mark) contains no actual sightings of a risen Jesus. With time, however, Christianity's claims of a Resurrection gradually evolved, progressing from "vision" to "established fact" -- the result of purposeful embellishment and mythologising.
