Ralph Ellis brings us his new book, which he asserts is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1,700 years. Ellis' latest research reveals who Jesus was, where he lived, and who his family were. Visit his city, see the ruins of his citadel, gaze upon his statue, handle his coins. In reality, Jesus was a son of King Abgarus of Edessa, a princeling with a small realm, a large treasury, and even bigger ambitions. But the wise prince of northern Syria came up against an intractable Rome and his many plans crumbled to dust. As readers will discover, the true history of this region undermines much of the biblical fairy-story that the gospel authors crafted, and so Christianity will never be the same. The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. Chapters include: Antioch, Edessa, Amida, Arbela and Palmyra; Adiabene and Palmyra; The Babylonian Jews; King Monobazus-Izates and Adiabene; Abgarus the Locust; The Parthian Sun-spot; The Doctrine of Addai; Silk Diadema and Tassels; Jesus and Mary in the Talmud; Emmanuel; Manu the Fish; Sarcophagus of Helena; The Fall of Edessa; more. This book is the last in the Trilogy begun with Cleopatra to Christ and King Jesus.
