This book is the result of a decades long search for the historical Jesus. It is an attempt to create a consistent narrative of his life and thoughts, resolving Biblical inconsistencies and showing by character interactionwhat questions cannot be answered. Did he abolish the Law? Did he think he was one with the Father? It is fictionally based on an alleged memoir of Joseph of Aramithea, in whose tomb Jesus was placed. By tradition Joseph was a cousin of Mary and Jesus. In the great Glastonbury legend he fled to Britain with the Grail after the crucifixion and founded the first 'above ground' Christian church. The narrative is written from the point of view of an older man in exile for many years in Somerset and telling his memories of the Passion to a wise Druid who knows something of Hebrew traditin but hears Joseph in a Celtic that knows of many mothering virgins and resurrections.
