Could it be possible that Jesus was not Jewish? Delving into the history of the Canaano-Phoenicians, El Koussa searches for the true identity of the Christian savior and challenges conventional thinking about his origins. Using historical, geographical, archaeological, cultural and theological findings, he shows that Jesus was born in the Bet-Lahem (Bethlehem) of Galilée and not in Judea, and that the etymology of the name ‘Jesus’ raises questions and reveals the true lineage of the family of the Messiah. He discusses the disparity of the relationship between the Great Annunciation and traditional Jewish practices, and compares ‘God the Father’ in the New Testament to the ‘Tribal God’ of the Old Testament. He also re-examines the validity of typically dismissed sources such as the Apocrypha, the extra-biblical Gnostic and non-Gnostic Christian texts that support the theory of Jesus the Phoenician.

Karim El Koussa is a bestselling and award-winning Lebanese author. His works reflects a combination of religion, history, philosophy, spirituality and esoteric inner insights, with a special focus on the Canaanite/Phoenician civilization. Among his books are “Jesus the Phoenician” (2013), Phoenician Code” (2011), and “Pythagoras the Mathemagician” (2010).
