Description: The Acts of Jesus is certain to raise questions and stir heated debate everywhere. Drawing on more than a decade of rigorous research, the scholars of the Jesus Seminar have concluded that some of the events related in the Gospels do in fact have a historical basis: Jesus was indeed a healer and exorcist, he did share meals with social outcasts, and he was thought by many -- including his own mother -- to be possessed by demons. But among their many headline-making findings, the scholars have also determined that, as a matter of history, there was no bodily resurrection and no virgin birth.

In pursuit of the historical Jesus, The Acts of Jesus reveals a flesh-and-blood figure, a visionary iconoclast whose intention was not necessarily to start a new religion. With an engaging graphic presentation, the book shows how leading biblical scholars applied the most up-to-date critical tools to study the Gospel texts. Each line of the Gospels is color-coded according to its historical authenticity:
-- Red -- The authentic acts of Jesus
-- Pink -- A close approximation of what Jesus did
-- Gray -- Stories that show minimal historical traces
-- Black -- Stories that are improbable or fictive

The Acts of Jesus is a powerful and highly readable guide to Jesus as he really was, not as a visitor from another realm as suggested by the orthodox creed.
