Or better yet, read "James the Brother of Jesus" by one of the leading scholars in the field, Robert Eisenman. Be forewarned, it runs over 1000 badly written pages. Yet the carefully indexed conclusion it forces is nothing short of devastating to "an historical Jesus." His central thesis is that James was in fact "the righteous teacher" (of the community of the poor, whom he identifies not as Essenes, but as seditious and revolutionary Zealots), and that Paul was "the man of the lie."

Not yet addressed (but explored in the sequel - which is probably waiting on a posthumous publication given the storm it will raise), is the further conclusion that the "Jewish Jesus" prototype was a relatively unimportant character, with all the significant stories cobbled together from many previous (largely gnostic) sources, overlayed by a confusion with James.

While a difficult read that would greatly benefit from a simplified "cast of characters" and a timeline, this was the book which likely triggered John Paul to say (in Latin) "An historical Jesus is not a prerequisite for Christianity" (1999). If you are at all interested in an historical, as opposed to a mythical perspective, it is a must read.

In great haste, maybe more after the Virian Celebration,

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg, 1999
