A renowned historian reveals how Jesus was viewed by the people of his time. Smith challenges the accepted Christian view by examining the language of miracles and demons in the New Testament and explaining the actual historical meaning of the mythological world in which Jesus lived.

In this controversial study, Dr. Smith compares in detail the evidence about Jesus recorded in the gospels with the evidence about ancient magicians preserved in magical papyri. Giving full consideration to all existing evidence, Dr. Smith gives convincing answers to such questions as: What did the people of that time mean by "magician"? What was the nature of magic? What facts lead to the conclusion that Jesus practiced this art? A highly sought after book for many years.
