Jesus the Phoenician is a very controversial book but the author has done his research, Karim's thesis is revolutionary but quite possibly true. He use argument taking from the Bible itself to proof that Jesus may not be Jews like everyone assume, his depth analyses said that Jesus maybe was Canaanite/Phoenician. I know many people will have some issues with this theory and it's will likely make some other anger without event read the book. But I suggested that you read it without any apprehensi ...more

I found it highly interesting how Jesus the Phoenician introduces the reader to the historical identity of Jesus - a fact that is confusing and somehow overlooked in the four canonized gospels – yet it strongly endorses His theological identity. Although the argument is controversial, the author managed to support his ideas basing them on a thorough study by referring to ancient maps, etymology, history books, apocryphal gospels etc. which make the work credible and authentic hence worth reading ...more

Highly interesting read. Written as the scientific background of the author's previous book 'The Phoenician Code'. The author peels off layers of accumulated historical inaccuracies to reveal the essence of the mission of Jesus. At the same time, the largely forgotten or 'concealed' history and origins of the nations that arose in the Eastern Mediterranean is explained which is worth knowing for now and the future.

I have recently read “Jesus the Phoenician” by the Lebanese author Karim el Koussa. I have found the book very motivating with some very interesting facts that were written by the author in a scientific logic manner. The book revealed to me the difference between the revengeful dictator Jewish god found in the Old Testament and the loving forgiven Father found in the New Testament. I recommend this book to every true Christian on earth..

A book worth reading, three times.
Once with your mind
And once with your heart
then you will come out with a question 'Are we on the good path back home?'
it is when you want to read it again in Spirit and Truth...
Three times I would say, a book worth reading, understanding and in faith
Thank You Karim El Koussa

Stay Blessed

Will reveal much

Well researched with lots of notes. Explores the true origin of Christ and his relation to the Jews. It will significantly influence your understanding of major religions.

Who was Jesus? Was he the Messia or was he just a Jewish Rabbi or resistance fighter? Getting down to the nitty gritty we start to question if Jesus was even Jewish. Karim Al Kroussa speculates that Jesus was not only a non Jew but that he was Phoenician. While as a reader I am not entirely convinced of Jesus’s Phoenician identity the author does bring up several good points.

The author believes that Jesus was a member of a Phoenician healer sect called the Ashayas. These were the Galilee Essenes

Words fail me. Couldn't/wouldn't finish. I don't like fantasy books wrapped in the mantle of theology.

“Yāwshu (Jesus) is the son of the Canaano-Phoenician Most High God Ēl-Alyon, being the Son of the Virgin Lady Maryām by the Divine Will of the Lord, who blessed this conception of a child that would be named Immanuel. He would live among us as “God Ēl with us,” a Nazarene, sacredly chosen to consecrate himself for keeping the word of God in his heart, mind, and spirit, healing the human race from its many errors and sins. He is the Galilean Meshiha (Messiah) who would anoint the people—who believed in him, his mother, and Father, and who believed in the Great Message he came to deliver, Love and Peace—with sacred water, the purest form of what is considered as the origin of life here on earth. He is the Khristós (Christ) who came and had himself crucified on the altar of life so that we may be clean and have life abundantly. He is the Good Shepherd.” 3 likes
