He shows readers that the Jesus who presented Himself in history can be correctly known only through the documents written by eyewitnesses of the Christ and by those who were disciples of those eyewitnesses, documents that were attested by the early church and became a part of the New Testament canon.

Overview

Biblical scholar Wayne House uncovers the various depictions of Jesus in the unorthodox communities within early Christianity, in other religions, and within Western civilization today. He shows readers that the Jesus who presented Himself in history can be correctly known only through the documents written by eyewitnesses of the Christ and by those who were disciples of those eyewitnesses, documents that were attested by the early church and became a part of the New Testament canon. Among the false Christs exposed by The Jesus Who Never Lived are:



the good but powerless Jesus of world religions
the less than fully God Jesus of the cults of Christianity
the mystical and even sensual Jesus of Hollywood and popular media

To believe in these false Christs is to believe a lie. But as readers discover the real Jesus, they will find the One who is the truth and the life and the only way to the Father.

    Who is Jesus┬┐

    This is a very special book and one that all Christians should read. Scripture clearly states that there will be false Messiahs. ¿My desire is that the reader will receive knowledge of the real Jesus amid the current contention that there are a number of equally legitimate understandings of Jesus.¿ The Jesus Who Never Lived is written for the layman, but I think I know some scholars that would benefit from this book. Wayne House discusses the various imagines of Christ, ¿from the early church, through the eyes of other religions and through the eyes of Western Civilization today. He discusses: ¿ The good but powerless Jesus of world religions ¿ The less than fully God Jesus of cults of Christianity ¿ The mystical and even sensual Jesus as presented by Hollywood and popular media¿ Readers need to know who the real Jesus is to be able to identify false prophets. Can we recognize a false prophet if we do not know the true Messiah? I do not think so. It is too easy for people to attempt to mold Jesus into what they want him to be rather than allow Him to mold us into His plan. House is a talented communicator. He writes in terms simple enough for all lay people to understand and yet well documented. I like this book and think it would benefit both believers and non-believers.
