    Based on the controversial work of biblical scholar Dr. Barbara Thiering, this video examines the historical background to the bible and its portrayal of Jesus. Thiering's interpretation of the Dead Sea Scrolls tends to strip away the supernatural elements of the Bible, explaining the miracles in human, rationalist terms, and arguing that Jesus was not a supernatural being with divine powers but an ordinary man with an extraordinary message of universal love who became fatally embroiled in the religious politics of the time.
