"In Jesus the Man, Barbara Thiering presents her landmark research into the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament. She provides a radically different history of the life of Christ which sweeps away the miraculous and superstitious elements associated with the origins of Christianity.
The Dead Sea Scrolls give us a new definition of scripture - that it is written on two levels. in her studies of the Scrolls over a period of 20 years, Barbara Thiering became aware that this approach could be used in understanding the New testament. Through detailed research and a process of scrupulous comparison she has applied this interpretive key to the New testament to reveal that the real history of Jesus is "...In the place where, ironically, he has been thought to be least likely to be found - in the gospels and Acts of the New Testament.""
