What if everything you think you know about Jesus is wrong? In The Jesus Papers, Michael Baigent probes into the truth about Jesus's life and crucifixion.

As a religious historian, Baigent explores the religious and political climate in which Jesus was born and raised, and the strife within the different factions of the Jewish Zealot movement. He chronicles the migrations of Jesus's family, his subsequent exposure to other cultures and the events, teachings, and influences that were most likely to have shaped Jesus's early years. Baigent also uncovers the inconsistencies and biases in the accounts of the major historians of Jesus's time, revealing their enduring influence in forming our most common conceptions of Jesus.

Baigent provides a detailed account of his groundbreaking discoveries. The evidence he uncovers leads him to make shocking new assertions that threaten the conventional account of Jesus's life and death and shake the very foundation of Western thought. Ultimately, his investigation raises the hope that we may gain a new understanding of Jesus.
