Frank R. Zindler, Author, The Jesus the Jews Never Knew -Back cover. From the Inside Flap.

With a Foreword by Frank R. Zindler. The Myth of Nazareth: The Invented Town of Jesus invalidates a central element of Christian tradition.

Their exact number is debatable, because it will be shown (Chapter Five) that one or more exist under the venerated area, and that several tombs (such as those under the Sisters of Nazareth convent). may in fact be a single tomb with subsidiary chambers. These tombs are all of the kokh type, which we have seen postdate c. 50 CE. The kokh-type tomb gave way in Roman times to other forms of burial-such as the arcosolium and trough grave. All these types of burial are represented in the Nazareth basin.

The Hellenization and René SALM: The Myth of Nazareth . The Invented Town of Jesus. This indicates that the fair assessment of the archeological of Nazareth (the deception is attributed to Christian archaeologists). evidence from Nazareth is not of great interest here (see the titles of Salm proceeds further in wanting to undermine the credibility of the the chapters). He sug- to different means. Salm does not give us more speciic information on why the church However, Salm’s book is also not free from linguistic error (repeating created the town of Nazareth.

The Myth Of Nazareth presents convincing archaeological evidence that the town of Nazareth was not settled until after the First Jewish War, around 70 CE. Exhaustive reconsideration of ALL artifacts from present-day Nazareth shows that the site was not inhabited at the time Jesus of Nazareth and his family are supposed to have been living there. In this book researcher René Salm proves that a core element of the Jesus story was an invention of the evangelists who wrote their gospels towards the end of the first century CE -- as it turns out, at the same time the village of Nazareth was coming into being. Requiring eight years of painstaking research, The Myth Of Nazareth surveys the archaeological record of the Nazareth basin from the Stone Age until modern times. It guides the reader through a stunning odyssey of discovery -- one which exposes not only the true history of the site but also a scandalous history of evidentiary suppression reaching back into Early Christian Times. The here-established fact that Nazareth is a literary invention puts Jesus of Nazareth in the same class as the Wizard of Oz and implies that Jesus too is a literary invention. Coming shortly after the claim of Israeli archaeologist Aviram Oshri that Bethlehem in Judea also was uninhabited at the time Jesus is supposed to have been born there, Salm's research seems to be delivering a one-two knockout punch to the character known as The Historical Jesus.

This is an excellent book about a very hard topic: Nazareth and the problem of its real existence as a town in times of Jesus. In brief: Did it exist at that time or not? In doing that, Rene Salm, the author, reviews both primary and secondary sources of highly recognized archaeologists and scholars and analyzes it with deep and conscientious scope. In his own words: "This work has not presented new material, but has brought a radically new analysis to material long know."

The theme is not an easy one because of the consequences. If Nazareth didn't exist at Jesus time, then where he came from, and, more interestingly, why do the evangelists mention the town in the Gospels?

The book is divided basically in two halves: the first one is the analysis in itself, and the second one is the catalog of sources and additional information for the reader. The interesting part for the common reader is the first one. Here, Salm gives us the data, the analysis and the conclusions he draws from them. In this field, Salm is very convincing without recurring to traps or twisted interpretations to get to the point.

This is not the first time that a very small (actually very small) collection of handicraft remains gives raise to an entire city with buildings and streets and temples and so on and on. I know archaeology is a highly developed science, but what we learn in this book is a very different thing: science guided by faith rather than truth. As long as you read the book you begin to think about that and after reviewing some definitions in parallel even from Wikipedia you discover that the author is not a radical one (or an outsider) but someone who just put the topic at issue. Nothing else.

Maybe you will read the other reviews and decide not to read "The Myth..." My advice: in any case read the book, do not let it pass. That's what I did despite the differences among reviewers and didn't feel dissapointed by the consequences. Quite the contrary, I felt that the chance of creating an empire starting from a little spoon is not far fetched at all. It's humanity at last and maybe at its best. Do we create myths to believe in them or believe in them precisely because they are myths? Here, Salm gives you an answer, a very disturbing one because is based on real stuff.

You don't need to believe me, you just need to read the book and draw your own conclusions.

Finally some clear, documented evidence that illustrates the full extent of the protective cover up surrounding the creation of the Jesus of Nazareth myth. One more well illustrated example of the items in that fiction that cannot possibly be true. If you want careful documentation, this is the book for you.
Ironfire
Well researched and reveals the extent the lengths the religious "scholars" go to fake evidence for their preconceived beliefs. What else can they do though, if they looked at all the evidence for their religion they wouldn't be believers anymore. I guess making up stuff is their only hope for maintaining this cash cow. I can't wait for R. Salm's next book.

The paperback version of this book demonstrated convincingly that Nazareth was not inhabited during the first century BCE and the first century CE, at least up until the time of the first Jewish revolt and destruction of the Temple of Yahweh (70 CE). Surprisingly, after re-examination of all evidence from all primary reports published up to 2008, it also showed that almost no artifacts at all had even been specifically claimed to date from that precise period! Rather, imprecise terms like "Roman Period" were employed to deceive the public into thinking the place had been inhabited at the time of Pontius Pilate et al.

This new digital version of the book, however, contains new information concerning claims made after publication of the paperback edition, especially claims relating to the so-called Nazareth Village Farm Report, a work associated with the notorious Nazareth Village Farm enterprise, a Disneyland-like commercial venture having no scientific credibility whatsoever and dedicated to making money from Christian credulity.

The fact that "Nazareth" was not inhabited at the time the "Holy Family" should have been living there is surely a serious problem for Christians who believe in the literal inspiration of the New Testament. In combination with Israeli archaeologist Aviram Oshri's discovery that Bethlehem in Judea also was not inhabited at the proper time, Salm's discoveries pose the greatest threat to fundamentalist Christianity since Thomas Paine's "Age of Reason."

Worth the money. A little hard to understand for me at times but then I'm not a historian or archivist. Great read.

While not a professional archaeologist Mr. Salm is very good at bringing to light the fact that for so many years letting scholars who are religious excavate religious sites the biased scholarship that has been put out into the public sphere. Mr. Salm patiently guides you trhough the history of Nazareth and looking at all available shards of pottery, lamps, etc. shows that the fore-mentioned scholars have "fudged" the dates to provide evidence that Nazareth was inhabited at the time of Jesus. Reviewing this evidence without religious bias secular scholars have come up with a more reasoned dating.

Very good information. Authorative, Written in an easily readable style. I will recommend this book to others.
Good evidence but really technical
