One thought on “Jesus the Man: Decoding the Real Story of Jesus and Mary Magdalene

  1. Charbel

    I did not like this book for a couple of reasons The first is that I found the writing to be quite insipid, as it took a lot of effort to keep reading it I had to push myself to not give up on it, and when I finally finished it I realized that I had wasted too much of my time on it The second reason is that Barbara Thiering was not able to convince me with her theory I consider myself an open minded person, in fact I m a bit too open minded, yet I found the material in this book to be absolute r [...]

  2. Paul

    This technical, meticulous, expository work of New Testament scholarship is the elephant in the room for all who wish to believe that the gospels are literal documents that portray events that actually happened as described.My introduction to the idea that Jesus survived the Crucifixion apart from seeing Ray Bradbury spitball a scenario for it on a TV talk show in the 1970s was in 1994 when I read The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln, a book subs [...]

  3. Isobel

    I picked this up primarily because Laurence Gardiner cited it as a source so often in Bloodline of the Holy Grail Thiering managed to turn a subject that I find completely fascinating into something I found I couldn t finish Despite really wanting to read this book, it was so desperately boring, I gave it up as a bad job It ended up in a charity donation bag in an international move Definitely not worth shipping If I saw it as a very cheap ebook, or at the library, I might give it another shot M [...]

  4. Stuart

    Not sure about this She is either a very clever academic who has reinterpreted the bible or a complete con She claims to use the Dead Sea Scrolls to decode what the New Testament period really means She has evidence in not only the fragments of writing but also in the remnants of Qumran which she claims was really where most of the events were happening including the crucifixion In her version, Joseph is nearly the king , Jesus got married off to Mary Magdalene and the various Jewish Christian f [...]

  5. Willa Powell

    I have a 1992 hardcover edition published by Doubleday My guess is the listing here is a later edition of same I m not sold on the theory that Jesus was a member of the Essene sect, but it was an interested read, if not compelling.

  6. Richard Worden

    A very detailed speculation by Dr Thiering who follows her hypothesis that Jesus survived the cross This book challenges many ideas about the New Testament.

    Book DescriptionDECODING THE REAL STORY OF JESUS AND MARY MAGDALENE Jesus was the leader of a radical faction of Essene priests He was not of virgin birth He did not die on the Cross He married Mary Magdalene, fathered a family, and later divorced He died sometime after AD 64 This controversial version of Christ s life is not the product of a mind which wants to debunk Christianity Barbara Thiering is a theologian and a biblical scholar But after over twenty years of close study of the Dead Sea [...]

  8. Dr. M

    The author Barbera Thiering was a Bible Scholar who worked for Australian Television She bases this book on the actual recorded evidences in the parchments generally known as Dead Sea Scrolls This book claims that the life and work of Jesus Christ are available in recorded history, and she gives a detailed account of it with references to every claim An unbiased reader becomes a greater admirer of Jesus Christ who was a revolutionary and social reformer, but it would shock those who attribute di [...]

  9. Paul Mannering

    The fun thing about religion is you can convince people to believe almost anything and claim it is truth It s a bit ironic to read a book that says here is the real Jesus I think it s quite likely that he did live in the way described, pursued a career as a political activist and then died in comfortable obscurity in Rome circa 64AD.What upsets people is the simple explanations of supposed miracles, but Occams Razor suggests that things are simpler than we might want them to be so the explanatio [...]

  10. Kathleen Dixon

    I actually found this book very boring The unfortunate thing is that her premise is such old news now that it was neither shocking nor exciting And her writing style is very dull.Who knows She may be right Though there are other ways of looking at the biblical stories that are satisfying and still manage to bring the miracles into reality I ve never had any interest in seeing the stories literally, but I do like to believe that something spiritual rather than political was what happened way bac [...]

  11. Dave

    Makes for interesting reading A well presented hypothesis, which if true puts a completely different slant on the historical accuracy of the New Testament However, I think it fills in alot of information that just isn t there to support itself Still worth a read if you are interested in this kind of thing.

  12. whynnot

    it s a refreshing interpretation of the new testament after years of christian religious indoctrination it takes a while to accept this new view though it makes good work of its subtitle decoding the real story of jesus and mary magdalene

  13. Robert Conway

    This book is kind of hard to get thru, but there are some very interesting elements of evidence and some possibly startling conclusions presented Worth a try if reader is serious in discovering what may have actually accured This work may offend those who are devout in Christian faith

  14. Doğa Armangil

    This one is for scholars, really Too much detail Interesting info, though Jesus didn t die on the cross, married twice, had three children, one girl, two boys, probably died of old age.
