Is the Old Testament too old to be of any use today? Reading the Gospels in light of the prophets of old such as Elijah and Elisha, Anderson's third volume offers a fresh portrait of Jesus (Yeshua) as a wise man who surpassed his predecessors because he was deeply versed in the Scriptures of his time. Like flowers, religions last if they have strong roots. Yeshua's Bible was deeply rooted in Ancient Near Eastern religions. A must-read to prepare the future of monotheism, beyond the parochial debates between religious groups today.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Looking for a fresh understanding of the New Testament, rooted in world religions, Ancient Near Eastern cultures, in particular the 'Old' Testament? This book will not disappoint you. You will discover Jesus as a smart Jewish rabbi, equal to Buddha, and as powerful as Elijah and Elisha put together.”

—Philippe Guillaume, lecturer at the University of Berne (Switzerland), staff member of the current Jezreel archaeological expedition (Galilee)
