About The BookAn upshot of scrupulous and painstaking research, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth contrasts the entrenched dogmatic theology and describes the life of Jesus as a man rather than a Messiah. This alluring, picturesque work promises a delectable read to both the believers and agnostics. The evocative description of the world in which Jesus lived and the role he played are convincingly woven into a fine masterpiece with quoted evidences.In the first century, many Jewish peasants and lower classes in Palestine were impoverished by the atrocities of Roman and Jewish upper classes.This book recreates the society, politics, economy and religion at the time of Jesus in an enthralling and steady pace. Jesus is described as a violent revolutionary, passionate man, â€œZealousâ€ visionary, faith healer who urged his disciples to keep his identity a secret and a common man who couldn't free his people from the early Roman brutality in his brief lifetime.The author asserts that the Christian church and in particular, St. Paul obscured the real image of Jesus of Nazareth and reinvented a holy figure of Hope and Salvation. While the author brings in a different perspective to the story of Jesus, he also lets the readers appreciate Jesus as the zestful ideologue, for his efforts in restoring peace in his country.Read up to know more about the age of Zealotry and the author's say on the resurrection three days after crucifixion.
