Jesus Christ: Magic Man?
by Ian McCoy
In this fascinating study Mr McCoy examines the life of Jesus of Nazareth through the miracles he performed. How did he do them? This is a question often asked of skilled magicians and the author addresses the possibility that the humble carpenter may have used the techniques of magicians and hypnotists to produce “magic” which were then labelled “miracles”.
Next he examines the concept of miracles from a philosophical perspective before going on to examine the miracles of Christ.
But what claims did Jesus himself make? They are really quite startling and lead to a conclusion which makes many uncomfortable. Jesus Christ: Magic Man was either very bad, very mad – or who He claimed to be.
Some “New Age” concepts with regard to Christ are discussed. Perhaps Christ was an enlightened being like the Buddha or like a Hindu guru? Was Jesus unique, or simply like the rest of us?
Next the author has an in depth look at two of Jesus’ greatest miracles, The Raising of Lazarus, and the Resurrection of Christ himself.
Finally he draws together the pieces to discuss the Universal significance of Jesus Christ – the Magic Man and concludes that he was not a god – like man nor was he was a man – like God. He was God – man: the most magical being ever to grace planet Earth.
