Sometimes when dealing with historical figures and translations over time from other languages, we lose the true, intended meaning. all things read from the past must be read within the context of their time and their audience.

This article describes how the author went back to re-evaluate the texts and interpretations of the ancient texts and has found, he believes, information that could put the man Jesus into context...and explain some things that were questioned as possible by an "iternerate preacher" of lower class

Brings to mind okams razor...the simplest explanation is usually the correct one...

"First century historian Dr Mark Whitters, of Eastern Michigan University, believes that The Jesus Discovery gives a proper insight into how Jesus was able to become such an important figure.

He said: 'Bradford brings to bear his formal training in medicine and psychology on a topic that requires some 'outside the box' thinking.

'This is a fresh perspective on the life of Jesus based on first century sources.

'Bradford asks some common-sense questions that these sources provoke but are rarely asked by modern biblical commentators.

'The book is consistent and provoking for anyone who wants to understand why Jesus shook up the world of Palestine in the first-century.' "

Jesus was son of an architect, book claims

If Jesus had been a notable figure during the period of time he is alleged to have lived, there are a host of regional historians that would have made note of him in their writings.

They never did.

This suggests that either he was a very ancillary character at the time, and that his fame can be attributed to Paul (primarily) as one of the greatest salesmen of all time, or that Jesus never lived as a human being on earth at all, and is actually the latest incarnation of the reinventable God-Man hero archetype that has been with us since before recorded history, featured in sevral significant runs at civilization.

Either way, Jesus wasn't a big deal when he was alive. Not even by Judean standards.
