Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A shoot has risen from Eisenman, and as his mentor, Wahler uses the same disorderly enthusiasm making his demonstrations at times difficult to follow.

Having my own standpoints, I can't agree that the best proof of Jesus' existence is that he had a brother James and that James was "THE" Master of Justice. But he was certainly "A" Master of Justice in the line of his predecessor.

With these disclaimers, lets look into what I consider as very positive aspects of this book.

Wahler recognizes that the Gospels display at least two masters, Jesus and his precursor John the Baptist from whom Jesus learnt. The author uses the Hebrew Matthew to show to what extent the original text underwent changes under the ideological pens of later scribes. This is an important aspect of the book for many commentators reject the very idea of an original Hebrew regardless the evidence found in the early church father's writings. I'm sure that many readers are unaware of Hebrew Matthew.

The author is also very keen in developing Eisenman's views supporting that James, the real follower of the traditions, was cleverly obliterated in Acts and later documents that set Paul in pole position. The controversy between the two men is a strong moment within the book. Paul is accused of inventing themes palatable to the Greco-Roman audience, betraying the real teachings of a Jesus who had no intention to create a new religion.

Jesus is also subjected to controversy as seen in the light of the Nag Hammadi collection of manuscripts. The author shows that normative Christendom was a choice between different understandings of Jesus' message.

This is a book for wide-open minds that shows that the struggle between tendencies was recorded within the gospels and apocrypha.

Capitalization doesn't exist in Hebrew, and "savior" in context relates to those in exile who are to be delivered back to Israel - Jerusalem and the Negev (south).

Format: Paperback
This is a great read. I found it absolutely delightful how the author didn't divorce the background understanding of the scriptures, the more esoteric and mystic approach, which is what proves that you have moved beyond the literal-historical approach which could be considered basic. The debates over John the Baptist, James the Just and Jesus are continuing. It is pretty obvious that the author is influenced by Robert H. Eisenman, one of the most reputable scholars and also one of my favorites as well. The focus on Qumran and the Nag Hammadi find, has dramatically changed the way we see the scriptures. And the audience relevance factor, which is something being completely pounded over and over again amongst the believers in realized or fulfilled eschatology (the belief that Jesus returned at the end of the Old Testament age in the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70), which is given a fresher new meaning. Who was Jesus talking to and who were his teachings for primarily? There is no secret that the scriptures have a more cryptic meaning, and this author gets right down too it. Love this book and looking forward to future books.

More About the Author

I am a Satsangi with the Radha Soami Satsang Beas Philosophical Organization of Beas, India. The current Master is Baba Gurinder Singh. www.RSSB.org

My book, newly rewritten under new title, "The Bible says 'Saviors' - Obadiah 1:21" will be available soon. It contains a description of the most important revelation concerning the New Testament scriptures since the gospels were written and canonized. The gospel "Betrayal of Jesus" story is actually a cover fiction for the installation of James the Just as successor savior. I am actively looking for an agent to publish this through a major publisher. Ultimately, there is a possible multimedia documentary planned. Any help with this, or the dedicated blog (now at: sitehttp://thebiblesayssaviors.wordpress.com/2012/09/26/13/) is actively sought and appreciated.
