4.0 out of 5 stars An Egyptian Jesus Among the Hebrews, Aug. 20 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Jesus: Last of the Great Pharoahs (Paperback)
As conspiracy theories go, this is a humdinger. Ellis draws together unlikely bits of flotsam and jetsam of bible and archeological history to develop a compelling tale of a very human motivation for the New Testament. As he would have us consider, Paul's divine Jesus is the puffed up remant of a the story of a very human but ambitious royal exile. As a descendant of Moses (forget David as revisionist history), Jesus was actually a Hyksos king and of the royal bloodline of Egypt. All the references to the Kingdom were actually him speaking of his shadow nation living in Palestine. And since he was Pharoah, he was God. No wonder he referred to himself as the Son of God as his father, also a Pharoah, was also God. No wonder the Romans let the Jews crucify him - he was a seditious rebel ! For those who like alternative views of accepted history, this is a good starter in a four book series by Ellis. Be prepared to wade through details as he tends to make his case by endless lists of facts. But he makes you want to know more.
