This review is from: Christian Beginnings: From Nazareth to Nicaea, AD 30-325 (Paperback)
As always, Professor Vermes presents the history of Christianity and its "evolution" from the Ministry, Cross and Resurrection of Yeshua to the Council of Nicea with insight, wisdom and clarity.
His credentials are impeccable and he writes with a lifetime of rigorous scholarship of his subject.
Every serious Christian should read this book, and consider the story it presents. The question posed is simply: have well meaning people imposed their own interpretation on Yeshua's life and ministry as a Judaic holy man? Or was Yeshua truly Messiah as predicted in the Tanakh (Ol;d Testament)?
