Overview

Jesus Was A Palestinian by Katherine Frisk

Jesus Was A Palestinian is a critical analysis of the Bible set against the historical, archaeological and the political background of the Hebrew people both past and present, in the ever changing landscape of the Middle East.

Katherine Frisk explores the influence that the Egyptian, Babylonian and Persian Empires had on a people buffered between East and West. How their literature and religious beliefs were incorporated into the Biblical texts and the influence this had on the diversity of opinion within the promised land.

Two thousand years ago Palestine was beset by turmoil that tore the country apart. The acrimony between the Sadducees, Pharisees, Herodian Kings and the Roman Empire on the one hand and the Galileans, Samaritans and the Essenes on the other, divided a nation along political, religious and tribal lines.

The dawn of the 21st Century is a mirror image of the past where the original twelve tribes of Israel who were scattered have yet again been gathered into a boiling pot of human suffering. What was relevant two thousand years ago is relevant today.
