Book Description

The legend of the Holy Grail has captured the imagination of millions of people for hundreds of years. It has been sought in the most unlikely places. But like all good mysteries, we only solve it when we look in the most obvious hiding place. The only thing we know for sure is that the grail is something to do with Jesus. So why not look for it it the books that tell us about Jesus- in the Gospels?

The Gospels were written by Jews, for Jews, about a Jew. It's easy for modern readers to miss their hidden agenda- they don’t live in 1st Century Judea, they don’t speak their language and they don’t share their culture. The Gospels are radical, political works, containing many coded messages. The code is based on the ancient literary technique of Midrash. When we decode the Gospels we begin to understand Jesus’s true revolutionary agenda. It was the Holy Grail which gives us the key to his aspirations.

This controversial book from British author Harry Freedman challenges both Christians and Jews to take a fresh look at the political message of the Gospels. It does not diminish Christianity in any way, but it brings a fresh perspective to one of the most hotly disputed periods of history. If you want to know what Jesus was really hoping to achieve, and if you would like to discover the true identity of the Holy Grail, read this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Provocative Book October 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love these outside the book looks at what we know about the bible and what it's message tells us. The author explores some very intriguing ideas about the other agenda of the Jesus Movement using biblical statements found throughout the bible to examine his argument. If you enjoy reading compelling and over the top biblical based research then this is for you.

What do we really know about Jesus and his disciples? What was the mission supposed to have been and how did it become the world religion it is today? Why did Jesus say and do some things that seem to be directly at odds to the Jesus most of us know from Sunday school? This book gives scriptural based arguments that make you think about these questions and more.

I recommend it to all readers whether your a graduate of seminary, a pastor, preacher or just a believer who wants to know more. Caveat emptor,.. enjoy the book but don't take is as gospel!

More About the Author

Welcome to my author page and thanks for taking the trouble to find out a little about me.

My books fall into three categories. There's the Yavneh Trilogy, of which, the first book, Jerusalem Imperilled, was published in November 2011. The trilogy is set in the middle of the 1st Century in the Roman province of Judea, the homeland of the Jews and birthplace of Jesus. The story is fictional but many of the characters are real.

The 1st Century was a time of tremendous political, cultural and religious upheaval in the Middle East, we still feel the effect of its events today. The destruction of the Jewish Temple by the Romans forced Judaism to reinvent itself and had a direct impact on the evolution of the new Christian faith. It was a tumultuous century, marked by extreme violence and profound intellectualism. It is when the seeds of Western civilisation were sown. For better or worse.

I also write factual books about this period. The Gospels' Veiled Agenda looks at the authorship of the Gospels. The writers were Jews, they were steeped in their native culture and the best way to understand their works is to approach them in context. When we do, we discover all sorts of hidden ideas and motifs in the Gospels. Including the identity of the Holy Grail!

Then there are my contemporary novels which will be available on Amazon shortly. Chutzpah's is the story of a restaurant owner in an previous recession. His business is going bust, his marriage is in crisis and he is struggling to come to terms with a mid life identity crisis. We've all been there (unless we're too young)!

The other contemporary novel that I will be publishing shortly is The Raven, a cabbalistic mystery set in the early 1970s. It'll entertain you, and make you think!

Please look at the sample pages available on Amazon. If you like what you see, please buy the books. You'll enjoy them! When you've finished reading a book I'd really appreciate it if you would write a review to post on Amazon, and anywhere else you can. Independent authors like me need as many reviews as possible so as to get noticed. Please also take a look at my blog, and let my readers have your comments.

If you want to contact me you can do so at any time, through my web site, http://www.harryfreedmanbooks.com. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
