By John G. Jackson.
In Christianity Before Christ, John G. Jackson formulates a compelling argument for the universal of what is called the Judeo-Christian tradition. He begins by recounting the many tales of the origin of mankind, outlining the parallels that exist between Tahitian myths and Hebrew fables. From there he examines the many flood myths, from the Old Testament's Noah to the Babylonian Xisuthrus to the Hindu Satyavrata.
With this background, the many savior stories are then investigated, along with tales of great messiahs and deities.
But did the individual called Jesus ever exist? And if so, when? It is with the answers to these challenging questions that Jackson concludes this work.
