While Jesus died slowly and painfully on a cross at Golgotha, three men, in a Jerusalem upper room, sat in on a sinister resurrection conspiracy which they never thought would change world history

Who were these men? What were their motives?

Who was the young man in long white garment the disciples found sitting in Jesus tomb on the morning of Jesus resurrection (Mark 16:5).

What happened to the body of Jesus missing on the resurrection morning?

Maverick Professor John Thomas Didymus a creative but sensitive mind unable to find succor in the age-old traditions of Christianity receives, while recuperating on a psychiatric hospital bed on the Isle of Patmos, healing divine visitations and empowering trumpet-call revelations of new Gospel truth. He reviews the historical evidence for a conspiracy theory of the resurrection in a compelling but disturbing alternative historical account of behind-the-gospel-scene political power intrigue and counter-intrigue trailing the ministry of Jesus from Galilee to Judea, Golgotha, the resurrection conspiracy and beyond.

Rebounding, finally, from the depths of mental illness, back to his job at the university, and now succored by his former nurse Mary Magdalene, John Thomas Didymus 's career builds up into an apocalyptic confrontation with his colleagues of the ivory towers who ridicule his alternative gospel his pet Metaphysical Theory of Everything: A theory designed to grasp the entire spacetime fabric of reality in one fell swoop. A theory, the cognitive mutations of a mind functioning precariously, dangerously on the edge of mental chaos, beyond mere genius, bearing his cross, amid hostile jeers and taunts, Christ-like to Golgotha, on a lonely, narrow, ascending cognitive bio-evolutionary pathway to infinity
