The Jesus Mysteries

National Geographic

Jesus Christ is one of the most famous names in the history of mankind.  He is the core of belief for millions of Christians worldwide and his story has provided rich material for thousands of books and films. But what has been overlooked is that the Gospel writers don’t tell us much about his life. It is shrouded in mystery and has been obscured by layers of myths and legends. Crucial events like the Nativity, the Miracles and even the Crucifixion have been adapted, embellished and rewritten over the course of hundreds of years to satisfy our thirst for knowledge. The Jesus Mysteries will re-examine the crucial elements of his story and question the basic assumptions to reveal some surprising and often shocking details about his life and ministry.
