In Plain Jesus, The Events on Nisan 14, N. Micklem goes behind the New Testament to excavate the facts about what happened shortly before – and shortly after – the death of Jesus. The alternative historical account presented here is based on fact.
This is a book about Jesus for those who cannot attach any sensible meaning to the words ‘he came down from heaven and was born of a virgin,’ and have only the haziest idea about what is involved in resurrection. In his letter to the Galatians, the Apostle Paul makes the claim on oath that he did not receive his gospel from any human source, but from the risen Jesus. In Plain Jesus, The Events on Nisan 14 the author explores what the history of the early church might look like if that claim were accepted at face value.
Taking account of the long neglected evidence outside the New Testament which shows that Jesus was crucified before the pilgrims in Jerusalem that year ate their Passover feast, N Micklem brings to light a picture of Jesus authenticated by those who knew him best.
