Did he rise from the dead, and if not why do Christians believe that he did? Did he have a plan and, if so, what was it? Did he accomplish his purpose or did the plan fail? If it failed, what were the consequences? Steuart Campbell, a scientist, is seeking in Popperian fashion to test such evidence as can be got about Jesus from a critical reading of the Gospels. He applies the mind of a rationalist to the problem of Christian origins as no previous writer has completely solved the riddle of Jesus. He sets out a hypothesis, one that explains Jesus' Jewish sect which believed that it was fulfilling a divine plan revealed in the Scriptures. This plan required the Messiah to die and rise again to become the King of Israel, throwing the Romans out of Judea and even replacing the Emperor as ruler of the known world! Read how Jesus expected to accomplish this. The author displays immense knowledge of the Bible and the history of the Jews and he explains many mysteries. It is an excellent review of the many attempts to solve the mystery. He builds on the work of many other authors and constructs what may be the ultimate explanation for the origin of Christianity. 'Taking up the torch from where Albert Schweitzer's "The Quest of the Historical Jesus" left off, Campbell offers a provocative, and what for many will be a deeply disturbing, account of the life, mission, death and "resurrection" of the historical Jesus...[it] is also a good read...it has some of the merits of a good detective story'...
