The Hidden Story of Jesus

Published on 26th February 2016 by

In 2004 a controversial documentary by theologian Dr Robert Beckford, Who Wrote the Bible?, explored the origins of the bible and concluded that much of the contents are complete fiction and that some of the other content was likely highly spun.

The Hidden Story of Jesus is a 2007 follow up in which he further explores the stories in the bible and finds amazing parallels between the story of the birth of Christ in other religions, some of which predate the apparent date of Jesus’s birth by thousands of years. Buddha, for example, was said to be the result of a virgin birth and visited by wise men bearing gifts.

Beckford asks which of the stories is the original one, and whether the story of Christs birth was stolen from other religions, was it the result of a centuries long game of Chinese whispers?
