The author is convinced that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to conceal the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah. She solves the mystery by reconstructing the deleted sections. King pieces together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah and shows that the key passages that were tampered with are actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to the New Testament Gospels. Using those passags and the history of the period, she identifies the figures mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

About the author (2012)

The writer, Margaret S. King, is an anthropologist who has studied Middle Eastern societies, both ancient and modern. Certain that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to cover up the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah, she was determined to solve the mystery by reconstructing the sections that were deleted. Using a wealth of evidence, the writer was able to together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah. She shows that the key passage that was tampered with is actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to, the New Testament Gospels. Using the reconstructed passage and the history of the period, she was able to figure out who were the cast of characters that were given symbolic names in the Dead Sea Scrolls. Filling in the missing pieces, the writer clarifies what happened in history. In the process, the real Messiah is unveiled and an explanation is given for the events that led to the development of Christianity.
