Following Philo: The Magdalene. The Virgin. The Men Called Jesus Reviews
If you are interested in a contemporary analysis of the history of the Judeo-Christian tradition from the Nazarene perspective, this is the book for you. Now, not everybody enjoys a philological analysis of their traditions. But if you have an open-mind and like looking at history from a different perspective, this is a very well done analysis.
This is an extraordinary book, unique in the field of bible interpretation and understanding in my opinion. It needs time to digest and get the gist of the methodology. For those who have gone into some depth, and I mean Hebrew not English, you may well know that the original parchments were written continuously, no/all capitals, no breaks between letters. Therefore other interpretation is possible from the original graphs, let alone all the proceeding translations. This book was a difficult read for me, partly because my relationshipal understanding is pretty poor anyway, in this the relationships and characters keep multiplying exponentially. But the good thing is that there is an end in sight. The characters (focusing mainly on the NT) are actually much fewer than commonly believed, because one person adopted, or is referred to, by several names, plus of course there are translation errors which add to the difficulty of sorting these relationships out out. Nevertheless progress is being made in Gott & Lichts’ new Philocentric method.
The book was interesting.
