The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.5 stars; 20 reviews)

The New Testament describes the life of Jesus, but nothing is said of his life between the ages of 14 and 29. Notovitch, like so many historians, tries to find evidence of what happened to Jesus during those years. He claims to have found the answer in an old document describing the life of Saint Issa. "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ" is a copy of the manuscript along with Notovitch's reflections on his findings. It will take you on a journey to an unexpected land, linking people, cultures and religions you wouldn't dream of linking. (Summary by sailormoon) (4 hr 0 min)

(4 stars)

Good read. Interesting indeed. Starts off slow the first and second chapter, but picks up as the author begins to touch on the reason why I picked the book in the first place. I highly suggest it to every Christian or just any person intrigued with a slightly alternate Jesus story.

very Interesting

(4.5 stars)

this very interesting and a good listen...but from my research there is no physical evidence to verify Nikovitch's claims. Its interesting even if it's not true.

(3 stars)

Well-read but not the Gospel according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

Interesting, thought provoking read...Definitely different look
