The second half of the of the Bible, the New Testament is devoted to describe him, his life, his death and what his followers believed about him. The Christian religion was largely developed by the apostle Paul, and other authors, none of whom had known him during his life, at least as claimed by many bible scholars.This book focuses on Jesus the man as he was portrayed by the three synoptic gospel authors Mark, Matthew and Luke.

None of the three had known Jesus during his life. They wrote their respective gospels about 40 to 70 years following the death of Jesus. They based their work on another unknown gospel, known as gospel Q. The three authors also copied from each other. As a result their work overlaps but in many cases is also complementary. This book is based on the work of the three gospel authors.The reader will find that the Jesus the three gospel authors portrayed was an educated and Torah-trained man, who most likely was also illiterate.

The above is based on the fact that from 97 to 99 percent of the population then was illiterate. From the information in the three gospels one can conclude that Jesus was trained in the local synagogues, and as a result was very knowledgeable of the historic Hebrew bible.The book describes many other attributes that were displayed by Jesus according to the reports of the three gospel authors.

They describe his actions and words in such a way that one must conclude that Jesus was also complex, troubled, critical, revolutionary, humanitarian, compassionate, vindictive, cynical and pragmatic.Some readers will view the conclusions drawn in this book as being critical.

They are to some extent but Jesus also had many positive features which probably caused him to be used as the person on whom one of the major religions of the world is based.In the last one third of the book an analysis is presented how Jesus was viewed after his death, and how he, or rather his perceived life was used to establish the Christian religion as we know it today.
