It is a quest which encompasses millions inside and outside the Christian church, including Jews, Muslims and the many 'post-Christians' who became disillusioned. Jesus is seen as a man/god, a teacher, a rebel and a Jew, as Jesus and the origins of Christianity are examined in the light of crucial new discoveries about his world, including new gospels.
