Overview



This is the book that the Catholic Church has been dreading for the last 1700 years. This is the book that will rock the foundations of Christianity as we know it - for the biblical Jesus has at last been found in the historical record.

We now know 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 V 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 for revolution crumbled to dust. As readers might imagine, 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 again.

The jacket image shows Jesus wearing his Crown of Thorns, the ceremonial crown of the Edessan monarchy. Jesus was crucified wearing this same crown, because he was a king of Edessa. In fact, Jesus was crucified in the Kidron Valley along with two other leaders of the revolt, but was taken down early and survived, just as the history of Josephus Flavius relates.

This is a scholarly study of all the available historical evidence, including the Tanakh, Talmud, Josephus Flavius, the Roman historians, and venerable Syriac historians like Moses of Chorene and Yohannes Drasxanakertci.

This latest edition also contains many rebuttals to the criticisms of this book that have been made by academia. Scholars confidently thought they could defeat these bold claims and arguments in a trice, but then discovered that they actually knew very little about these events and their many criticisms were shown to be baseless. In fact, most of these so-called scholars then deleted their comments on the internet, to conceal the ignorance that they had displayed.

This is the final book in the King Jesus Trilogy, and so we suggest that readers start at the beginning of this fascinating series. The wait before arriving at the last episode in the trilogy will be worthwhile, for if a book could be valued on its 'eureka moments' then this final book would be priceless. v8.8

Meet the Author

Ralph Ellis has been touring the Mediterranean and researching Egyptian and biblical history for over 30 years, and his comparisons between the two have greatly assisted our understanding of biblical history. It would appear that much of biblical history was derived from Egypt, and this includes: the history of the patriarchs, the Santorini-Exodus event, the United Monarchy of kings David and Solomon, and the New Testament accounts as well. Jesus, as readers will recall, went to Egypt for his education, and this educational exile was neither coincidental nor made through necessity.
This gradual uncovering of the Egyptian history of the Tanakh and the Gospels has finally delivered the the ultimate in theological discoveries - the real identity of Jesus in the historical record and the location of his palace and small kingdom. But this is a story that should be savored rather than rushed, so readers should start with 'Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs' and then progress to either:

New Testament history:
Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs.
Cleopatra to Christ.
King Jesus.
Jesus, King of Edessa.

Old Testament history:
Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs.
Tempest & Exodus.
Eden in Egypt.
Solomon, Pharaoh of Egypt.
Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots.
