Book Review - The Samaritan Jesus

Full disclosure, the author, John Munter, is my cousin!

"The Samaritan Jesus" explores the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Gnostic Gospels, and the writings of Roman historian Flavius Josephus, and concludes that Jesus was Simon Magus, and Mary Magdalene was Queen Helen of Adiabene.

For me, the most interesting source was the Slavonic Josephus, who translated Flavius Josephus before the Roman gospels were written, and mentions a Roman massacre just prior to the crucifixion, which coincided with a Roman massacre of Samaritans at Mount Gerizzim.

I have not had time to verify the sources, but if proven accurate could shake things up a bit. There is still a spiritual side to Simon Magus, but it involves a psychomanteum technique to access the higher self. As always, I will keep an open mind and take it with a grain of salt!
