Just for once, you can and should judge a book by its cover. Blazoned on the front of The Jesus Papers is the pugnacious claim: 'exposing the greatest cover-up in history', while on the back, there's a daft, but fundamental, question: 'what if there is incontrovertible proof that Jesus Christ survived the crucifixion?

What exactly 'the cover-up' is, even after ploughing through Baigent's gormless prose, I am none the wiser, unless it is his allegation that the Vatican has been suppressing various documents relating to Christ's origins. As for the notion that Jesus survived the crucifixion, this, as the author himself admits, is not exactly a new theory, and one that's already been well rehearsed in some other books.

You know you're on to a stinker from the very first paragraph. Being of Huguenot stock, I always enjoy a bit of well-researched and justified Catholic baiting, but The Jesus Papers is neither of these things. Piling speculation on conspiracy theory on dodgy dealings, Baigent, who lost the recent court case against Dan Brown, becomes increasingly desperate to undermine the basic tenets of Christian faith, though to what end remains a complete mystery.

His daftness reaches its apotheosis on page , when he baldly states: 'All history is a myth. You shouldn't judge proper historians by your own lamentably low standards of rigour and research. Topics Books The Observer. Society books reviews. Reuse this content. Most popular.

The mystery of 'The Jesus Papers'

Michael Baigent is investigating a grisly crime. Sara James, Dateline correspondent: You believe that much of what we think we know about Jesus is a lie? Hard to imagine? Brown and his publisher strongly deny they did anything wrong. A decision is pending in the case. While he considers himself an investigator bent on exposing the truth, scholars say the tale he weaves is fiction— fantasy, rather than fact. For more than 20 years, author Michael Baigent has kept the trail warm, chasing secrets from London to Jerusalem.

The Jesus Papers

Providing his detailed history of Jesus' life and crucifixion; using papers that, according to the author, were covered up. The book documents the political context of Jesus' birth, and then goes on to examine the history of the migration of the family of Jesus, the chronicles of his teachings, and his death. In The Jesus Papers , author Michael Baigent claims that after having been taken down alive from the Cross, Jesus was removed from the tomb at night by Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus , then smuggled away to Egypt along with his wife, Mary Magdalene. They moved to Narbonne in the south of France in AD 38, following unrest in Cairo, close to where they had settled in or near the Temple of Onias. Other Jewish families had settled in Narbonne claiming descent from King David. Michael Baigent claims to have seen two papyrus documents - the "Jesus papers" - written in Aramaic , discovered in the Old City of Jerusalem during the s. Baigent claimed these documents dated to AD 45 and were letters to the Sanhedrin from bani meshiha "the Messiah of the Children of Israel" , defending himself against the allegation that he claimed to be the Son of God.
