What can we really know about Jesus of Nazareth, the founder of Christianity? Two thousand years after his death the answer is that we know a great deal, probably more than has been known about him at any time since he walked the hills of Galilee. This book, based on the BBC series, reconstructs all we know to date about the historical Jesus, through written sources, archaeology, science and the ingenuity of computer graphics. This very state of the art account examines all the claims made about Jesus, his existence, his strange birth, his background and parents, his life and death. Reading this evidence really brings this elusive figure to life and supporting computer graphics add unique, fresh insights.
