From the Back Cover
EGYPT / ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONSAlthough it is commonly believed that Jesus lived during the first century A.D., there is no concrete evidence to support this fact from the Roman and Jewish historians who would have been his contemporaries. The Gospel writers themselves were of a later generation, and many accounts recorded in the Old Testament and Talmudic commentary refer to the coming of the Messiah as an event that had already occurred.Using the evidence available from archaeology, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Koran, the Talmud, and biblical sources, Ahmed Osman provides a compelling case that both Jesus and Joshua were one and the same--a belief echoed by the early Church Fathers--and that this person was likewise the pharaoh Tutankhamun, who ruled Egypt between 1361 and 1352 B.C. and was regarded as the spiritual son of God. Osman contends that the Essene Christians--who followed Jesus' teachings in secret after his murder--only came into the open following the execution of their prophet John the Baptist by Herod, many centuries later. Yet it was also the Essenes who, following the death of Tutankhamun and his father Akhenaten (Moses), secretly kept the monotheistic religion of Egypt alive. The Essenes believed themselves to be the people of the New Covenant established between their Lord and thenselves by the Teacher of Righteousness, who was murdered by a wicked priest. The Dead Sea Scrolls support Osman's contention that this Teacher of Righteousness was in fact Jesus.AHMED OSMAN was born in Cairo in 1934 and is the author of Moses and Akhenaten, Out of Egypt, and The Hebrew Pharaohs of Egypt. He lives in England.

The link that Osman makes between Yuya and Joseph is quite brilliant. They are the only two people in history that are described as being "a father to Pharaoh" also Yuya is the only Egyptian mummy to have his hands placed under his chin rather then across his chest and has Semitic features. This information is easy to find. If anyone thinks this theory is "wacko" then they clearly have their own agenda.
The other reviewer seems to completely ignore that fact that Jesus Christ is, in all probability, an invention. He also ignores the fact that Moses and Joshua are probably invented characters also. However, what we do know is that Akhenaten and Tutankhamun where very much real. We also know that Akhenaten was the grandson of Yuya and that he controversially introduced monotheism into Egyptian culture. Akhenaten and his followers where forced out of Egypt and this, along with the Hyksos explusion, has to be the exodus described in the bible.
Considering there is zero evidence for the biblical exodus i do not understand the resistance to accept these theories. As for Jesus/Joshua - these characters must be based on someone and Osman explains his theories clearly and makes them easy to understand. If you are interested in these subjects then i can only recommend this book as an informative and excellent read.
Osman presents his case with facts based on etymology and archaeology comparing them to scriptures. I read this book in between Lawrence Gardner's "In the Shadow of Solomon" and "The Lost secrets of the Sacred Ark" , I felt that all three books went well together and they are rich in facts and historical accounts, I thoroughly recommend all three books.
Whatever the true story of Christ may be, there certainly had to be a very influential movement by important people to gain popularity and support, so much so it has lasted to this day. Enjoy the revelations!
Ahmed Osman wrote:
"Some of the ideas put forward in this book --- and certainly the conclusion to be drawn from them --- will undoubtedly prove startling (even distressing) for readers who have not encountered them before. However, the purpose has been to try to identify the historical figure of Christ, not to argue about theological interpretations of his life and teachings that developed subsequently."
"The paths trodden in this book are not by any means new paths. Other scholars have been down them, only to turn back because they were leading to disturbing territory that challenged accepted wisdom or clashed with their own beliefs."
How true. Ahmed Osman would have been declared a heretic, to be stoned to death, or burned at the stake by Judaists, Christians and Followers of Islam had this been written even a century ago. But with the full acceptance of the Freedom of Speech by the majority of the Peoples of the world, and with access to freedom of information on the internet, we are today fortunate to have access to information that had been locked away for thousands of years because of religious bigotry. Even so, the majority of readers, (here I refer mainly to evangelical Christians) will automatically condemn and reject the views in this book mainly because they have been so deeply indoctrinated with orthodox Christian memes that, on this topic of, "the quest for the historical Jesus" the version in the New Testament is the only story of Jesus that is acceptable.Read more ›
