Yeshu'a: An Account of a Master's Journey Eastby Patrick Gallivan
While this book is basically a novel chronicling the life of Jesus's so-called lost years, it contains many truths that have long been forgotten or seriously ignored. However, a great deal has already been written about His life in sources other than Christian. It must be stressed that the master Jesus is revered by most religions and has joined the ranks of the ten Celestial Avatars, who have come to assist mankind throughout history: e.g., Malseini, Rama, Krishan, and now Kalki, in His triple incarnations as Sai. It was from these "other" that I have sourced a great deal of my research for this book.
Down through the ages, it has been repeated that the Jews crucified Jesus. I dispute this, as Jesus never had reason to feel in any danger from His own people-the Jewish people. He was a Jew and not a Gentile. Neither was He a Nazarene, for that is a name given to one not of the Jewish faith, or one who had converted from Judaism, and not taken to be from a place called Nazareth.
The danger came from the Roman authority of the time and their fellow travelers-wealthy Jewish merchants-for the latter had protection under the Roman/Jewish treaty. That treaty also allowed for the Romans to put on trial and execute criminals on behalf of the Jews, for Jews were not allowed, by their own laws, to perform the act of killing except in the form of sacrificial animal slaughter as offerings to their God.
The Jewish people became the scapegoats for centuries to come by those who chose to sidestep the responsibilities for their actions and blame others. The truth is that the Romans exercised a brutal regime throughout the Middle East. But it was when Jesus overturned the tables of trade and banking, which were being practiced within the confines of the temple in Jerusalem, that His fate was sealed.
While Jesus is known today by that name. He was called by different names at different times and cultures-e.g., Yessu, Yusa Asaph, ISha Natha, Issa or Isa in Tibet. Asaph denotes that He healed lepers. At birth, He was Immanuel, later Joshua. In Aramaic as Jesu, in Urdu as Yusu, to the Greeks as Iesous, and the Romans as Iesus. I chose to call Him Yeshus, the Help of Yahveh.
