This is an auction for JESUS THE MAN by Barbara Thiering. review:

"FIVE STARS!!! This book and the others in the series are works of great scholarship. It is NOT a work of fiction (as Dan Brown). It is also not a work that struggles to extract some startling "new truth" from the Gospels as they have come down to us through many generations of editing / mistranslation / fraudulent invention by the church orthodoxy. Instead it uses an entirely new approach to uncover the real story of events. If you read the Dead Sea Scrolls you will discover that most of them were written by the political / religious enemies of Jesus. Luckily within them are some documents that are like a Rosetta Stone. They are scripts written in the same style of the Gospels ie flowery and obscure language that can hide many different meanings but included with them is a 'crib' of the real meaning. When the rules of writing this mystery writing are applied to the Gospels there springs out an astonishing array of facts and a story that shattters the myths of the established church. The story revealed is very complex but is totally consistent and realtively easy to check. It will certainly change your view of Jesus. He was a person of great stature but a human struggling with the political and religious problems of the day. Some of it is very funny when you come to realise the real meaning of the 'miracles'. You will see that none of them were supernatural but an "astonishing" breaking of the religious rules by Jesus. No wonder they wanted him dead and the church has been trying to kill the truth ever since."
