As the early Church grew in power and control, so grew the gap between the peace, love and forgiveness promised by Jesus and the terror and suffering inflicted by the Church in his name. The distortions of Christian narrative that still influence our lives, moral values and laws have, over time, become more seemingly ‘true’ than the original truth Jesus Christ taught. To this day, the real teachings of Jesus are still dangerous, still forbidden, still very strange sounding to our modern ears and still condemned as heresy.
So, what was Jesus really here to achieve?
This is surely the ‘Who wants to be a millionaire?’ question. For one million pounds, was it:
1.to forgive the Original Sin,
2.to fulfil the law of Moses,
3.to reopen access to the Tree of Life, or
4.to breach the seven seals?
If you’re confused about what each of these even means, let alone which is the correct, life-changing, final answer, you’re in pretty good company. But by the time you reach the last page, with Shakespeare’s invaluable help, you should be a whole lot clearer.
This book has no ending. It is a continuous journey of questions and answers, a conversation between those of us who share a hunger for truth and a thirst for adventure.
