Supported by archaeology and non-biblical sources, in his book, ‘How History Created the Bible’, author, Antonio Sebastian, looks at the events which shaped the men, who created history and wrote the Bible.

About the Author
Antonio Sebastian is a child of the lost Colonies and belongs nowhere. Only half joking, he describes himself as "Eurotrash." As a commercial Diver, Subsea Inspection Engineer, and Technical Author, his career has blessed him with the freedom to pursue his studies unencumbered by tenure or faculty. He is an Independent Scholar and Student of Anthropology and Religion. For many years, he was a serious student of Soto Zen Buddhism. But after twenty-five years, a personal crisis in Vietnam and a brush with Radical Islam in Algeria brought him to a study of Early Christianity and Judaism. Having concluded that the teachings of Jesus could not be understood outside of their Jewish roots, he began a study of Kabbalah. This study has changed him radically. Like a Hollywood "Road Movie," the journey to personal transformation brought with it an undying gratitude to the teachings of the Jewish Rabbi who had the courage to love his enemies. Antonio's debt to the Rabbi and his story gave him the determination to give the Jesus of History back the voice so long denied him. Antonio intended to write a scholarly work on the relationship between first century Nazarene Judaism and modern Kabbalah but, after ten years of research, concluded that the teachings must be experienced in order to be understood. The Nazarene Chronicles are his attempt to facilitate that experiential understanding. He can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
