Overview

In Jesus The Jew No One Knows D. C. Smith reintroduces history's most misunderstood Messiah. He presents the Torah-observant teacher, accompanied by classical artwork and concise explanations, to show what actually happened to him both before and after Christianity took root in Roman-occupied Judea.

Using a carefully drawn out series of historical segments, Smith peels back 2,000 years of revisionist distortions to uncover the many myths and made-up stories about a local rabbi we now think of as "Jesus," but whose real name was Joshua.

Smith informs us about Christ's birthplace, his mother, father, brothers and Nazarene neighbors, as he describes a peasant existence exalted and overdramatized after-the-fact. He shares the circumstances of a teenage boy growing up in Lower Galilee, noting the race, tribe and lineage he would have belonged to, while explaining the political meaning behind his parables and the baffling behavior of his closest disciples.

The author also considers narcissistic emperors and kings who reigned during those ancient days and recounts the new prophet's religious calling, along with aristocratic "enemies" and so-called "friends" who claimed to have witnessed what was going on.

In the third and final part of the story Smith exposes his hideouts, his last supper, his betrayer, the Roman judge who sentenced him, and the eventual crucifixion, all of which were followed by church doctrines regarding his resurrection and second coming.

Replete with biblical timelines and a comprehensive glossary, Jesus the Jew No One Knows is a visual journey into the day-to-day life of Jesus Christ. It chronicles how the truth about him was either covered up or set aside and how later theological traditions were passed down over the centuries by Greek-speaking ghost writers with suspect agendas.

From start to finish, this remarkable book separates fact from fantasy in reconstructing the historical Jesus and the turbulent times in which he lived. It is a must read for inquisitive people of all faiths and for secular humanists, too!

Meet the Author

D.C. Smith is a former college professor with an intense love of history. Over the decades he has taught many different subjects, including philosophy, literature, rhetoric, religious history, labor union history (and law), plus creative and professional writing. In the early 1960s he attended Mt. San Antonio College, East Los Angeles College, CSULA, CSUF, and the University of Arizona. Not long thereafter he and his wife served in the Peace Corps before settling down to raise their family in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Since then he continued his academic pursuits at UCLA and Cornell University while working for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. This job introduced him to the world of rank-and-file politics, mostly as a community organizer speaking and writing on behalf of pro-union causes. He also served the union in other ways, including appointments as IBEW press secretary, managing editor of a quarterly magazine and lead instructor teaching labor organizations how to implement improvements in membership, education and training. During much of this time Smith taught classes at the following educational institutions: the University of El Salvador; Yuba College; Glendale College; Mt. San Antonio College; and California Polytechnic University. In the 1990s he partnered with show-business entrepreneurs to create SKS Publications. Together they researched, wrote and published a series of historical trivia for Barnes and Noble called BIRTHDAY GIFTBOOKS. Individual works include Layers of Lies, History's Most Famous (and infamous) Humans, "Shakespeare's Superman," "Rebutting the Gospel Hoax," and " Brotherhood Betrayed." More recently, he visited Qumran and several other important archeological sites with the distinguished author and educator, James Tabor. He then teamed up with the eminent historian, Robert Eisenman, to conduct tours of the Holy Land in cooperation with officials of the Israeli Antiquities Authority. Under the leadership of Dr. DeWayne Coxon they have all worked to restore the ancient city of Biblical Tamar located in the Negev Desert near the Dead Sea. It is an active dig going down ten layers from the Roman Period to the days of King Solomon. Professor Smith is also a member of the Biblical Archeology Society and the Society of Biblical Literature. He sits on the Board of the Institute of Anthropological Studies at Tamar Park and currently serves as West Coast Representative for Blossoming Rose.
