Not being a Christian, I found this book particularly interesting to read. While treating the matter with utmost respect, the author presented a persuasive argument why Yeshûa the man, became the most honored person in the history of the world. The very last line in the book opens the possibility that he may have become even more than that. Fascinating.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The novel is based on a statement by Edgar Cayce, the late American prophet, that Jesus had visited 'Persia, India, Syria and Egypt to complete His education.' The author has thoroughly researched early Indian and Middle-Eastern history. He illustrates conditions in which such an education might have taken place to prepare Jesus for His ministry. As the story unfolds, Satia, the son of a wealthy caravan owner, meets the twelve-year-old Yeshua (Jesus) as the latter flees in rebellion from his Essene teachers. The two become fast friends and stay that way for the eighteen years not covered in the Bible ¿ the years between the finding of Jesus in the Temple and the beginning of His short ministry. The Montreal Review of Books called it a book of ideas and philosophy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
