The Nativity is the very heart of the Christian tradition. For more than 2,000 years, the story of Jesus birth has been told and retold, mythologized and sentimentalized. In "The Nativity," Geza Vermes untangles centuries of storytelling and places the birth and the events surrounding it within their historical context.
Vermes examines every aspect of the Christmas story: the prophetic star, the journey of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the miraculous birth in the stable, the arrival of the magi, and the murderous decree of Herod. Delving into all the available evidence including the New Testament Infancy narratives of Matthew and Luke, Jewish documents of the period, and classical literary and historical sources Vermes explains where actual history ends and legend begins.
A masterful work of biblical scholarship, "The Nativity" penetrates the deeper meaning of the New Testament. By clarifying what belongs to real history and what derives from man s hopeful and creative religious imagination, it gives readers a new and more powerful understanding of the events celebrated every Christmas season."
