From Wikipedia: The novel provides a narrative attempting a demythologized account of the events surrounding the life of Jesus and the origin of Christianity. Written from the viewpoint of Nathan, the Thirteenth Disciple, the heavily footnoted book presents an adventure and romance storyline against the backdrop of the 1st century Roman Empire. Nathan's travels lead him to Rome to fight as a retiarius, and on his return to Palestine to become involved with the Apostles, the Zealots and the Essenes. He loves Shelomith (the disciple Salome, depicted in the novel as a prostitute), who does not return his affections due to her unrequited love for Yeshua (Jesus).Always!
