Abstract:

This work addresses the issue of what the New Testament actually teaches, and it's not what most people think. The author, a Bible expert demonstrates that the New Testament is riddled with contradictory views about who Jesus was and the significance of his life. He reveals that many of the books were written in the names of the apostles by Christians living decades later, and that central Christian doctrines were the inventions of still later theologians. Although this has been the standard and widespread view of scholars for two centuries, most people have never learned of it.
