Three of these gospels--Matthew, Mark and Luke--are known among scholars as the Synoptic Gospels- meaning simply that they are very similar in their content. It was by stitching together assorted bits and pieces of these gospels that Christianity was able to cobble together a standard model--the Synoptic Jesus so familiar to us today. From a miraculous virgin birth in Bethlehem--to his final glorious ascension to a heavenly throne- early Christianity was able to present the world with a magical, mythical super-sized demigod--truly worthy of the title Christ! The Fourth Gospel, however--the Gospel of John--stands apart from any of these traditions.Johns Jesus was not born of a virgin, not born in Bethlehem, not the messianic son of David, and was not lifted up to heaven after his resurrection. This, of course, presents a significant challenge to accepted Christian catechism. Consequently, if it were found that Johns description of the Jesus narrative was actually the correct version--the impact and consequences to established Christian beliefs are simply too vast to comprehend. The Crown of Joseph: Jesus, John and the Greatest Story Never Told is the first investigation to re-examine the Jesus story strictly from Johns unique perspective.
