This book is a fascinating study in search of the real Jesus. The author concludes that scripture is essentially a collection of prophecies, not a record of past events. Jesus did not say, "Blessed is he who heeds the words of the history of this book," but rather "Blessed is he who heeds the words of the prophecy of this book." Thus, the current tenets of Christianity with regard to the origin and advent of Jesus are based on fundamental misconceptions. The book´s argument is that Christ´s visitation has not yet occurred in the world of time, since it is a future event, and that his origin will be derived from the Greeks, not the Jews, when he does appear.
Eli of Kittim is a published author and an expert on Bible prophecy. Under his real name he has published articles in numerous prestigious journals and magazines such as "The American Journal of Psychoanalysis," the "Aegean Review" (which has published work by Jorge Luis Borges, Lawrence Durrell, Truman Capote, Alice Bloom), and the "International Poetry Review" (a literary translation journal), among others. He is the author of the recently released book, "The Little Book of Revelation: The First Coming of Jesus at the End of Days." This is a well-supported, twenty-year study of the Bible that attempts to substantiate the truth of Christ's visitation and origin. The author concludes that the biblical story of Jesus is prophetic rather than historical. He argues that the first coming of Jesus is yet to come!
