Bringing together recent archeological discoveries and contemporary scholarship, Kenneth Hanson traces the little-known story of the original Jesus Movement, led by Jesus' brother James around whom the Jerusalem church coalesced after Jesus' death. Hanson relates what scholars now believe happened to Jesus' distraught mother, his other brothers and sisters. He recounts how the Church became a powerful force in Jerusalem under James' leadership and follows their migration to Transjordan after the martyrdom of James. Though the Book of James appears in the New Testament, the original Jesus movement was quickly overshadowed by Paul's gentile Christianity. However, this original band of followers of "the Way" did not simply disappear in the late first century. They became a powerful movement within Judaism after the fall of Jerusalem. Most startling is the conclusion of Hanson's original research, that the legacy of these heirs of Jesus continues today within Judaism.
