This review is from: The Changing Faces of Jesus (Paperback)
The late Geza Vermes spent a lifetime researching into life in first-century Palestine in general and the Dead Sea scrolls in particular. In this book he compares the different images of Jesus in the New Testament, beginning with the Christ-man presented by John, through to Matthew and Luke and finally to Mark, the earliest gospel and apparently the closest to being an eyewitness account. Written for the non-specialist, it is a riveting account if one is already familiar with the New Testament.
