The Jesus Discovery - Another Look at Christ's Missing Years
"I went to the seminars that Dr Adam Bradford put on at Detling 2014 and I found each one fascinating.
They really were so interesting and I learnt so much. I have bought most of the books that he has published as
I can carefully read them in my own time and pass them to others. His books are very easy to read - you won't be able
to put them down. Dr Bradford is so passionate about knowing what is written in the language of the time.
The correct translation puts a whole new perspective to what is written in the bible"
E Margrave, Kent
"I bought a copy of your book "The Jesus Discovery". I found it to be quite
brilliant. I can only begin to understand how this information has been hidden for so long, buried under our
traditional view of Jesus as the Christ only. What Jesus really said about so many things is often buried and
distorted by the poor English translation of the original text. Your book has greatly enhanced my understanding
of his life and work as described in the gospels and, I feel, brought me much closer to him personally. Jesus
had a big job to open people's minds from their entrenched tradition and culture, as you have shown. I feel you
have opened the door here to a much greater understanding of him, not just intellectually but personally
John Chandler, Cardiff
"Mind blowing. It stimulates the intellect."

"I bought a copy of your book 'The Jesus Discovery' and I found it so very interesting
and wonderful. Years ago I spent 10 years working in a boarding school for gifted musicians and I can truly
understand the idea that the Jewish authorities would not have let Jesus, that bright clever young man at 12 years
of age, slip through their fingers. Thank you for all your work and the pleasure you have given me and many other people."
Mrs F Cleaver, Warwicks
"A paradigm shift is nothing on this"
N. Robinson (Dublin)
"This book really helps make the Scripture come alive, as you begin to understand Jesus better"
T. Turner (London)
"A well researched book and very easy to read, making some very interesting points"
Agnes Crandall (Michigan USA)
"I thought your seminar was outstanding. There was so much new material in it. Many people were
blessed by it."
Rev A Afriyie (London Network Church)
"'I'd like to say how much I enjoyed reading Dr Bradford's book. I had bought it following hearing
his teaching tapes (from the Detling Conference, 2011). His ideas are completely new to me, but make a lot of sense."

"Extremely helpful in understanding more about the life and times of Jesus."
C Hickey, Australia
"The insights and details of Jewish life are very illuminating and helpful. It will prove invaluable
to me in future study and ministry."
Pastor W Smith, Dorset
"I appreciate the work you have done in helping us understand the humanity of our Lord."
Dr David Shibley, Global Advance
"I loaned your books out and am having trouble getting them back. Everyone must think they're good.
I do too. And challenging."

"I've been a Christian since 1999, but after reading "The Jesus Discovery", I feel I've met
Christ for the first time. When I first learned of this book, I was skeptical. Overcoming the perception of who Jesus was in His
society is not easily done -- it requires overturning centuries of teaching. For someone who is quite orthodox, that's not easily
done. But, from the interviews I'd heard with Dr. Bradford, I thought the book was worth investigating. And it was.
Dr. Bradford does not come to this radical view of who Christ was without evidence. And the evidence is of the best sort -- scripture. I never saw what was plainly in front of me. Jesus was consistently, by his enemies, afforded the respected titles of Doctor, Master, Teacher, Rabbi. These are official titles that required a high level of education -- just as they do today -- an education on par with university professors who have obtained the doctorate level of education. Why would such bitter enemies of Christ consistently use such titles of respect? Why did they never dismiss Jesus as an uneducated peasant? The answers become clear in "The Jesus Discovery."
I suppose I shouldn't feel too bad about never seeing what was right in front of me all these years -- no one else had either. Not until Dr. Bradford, that is. Hats off to Dr. Bradford for a brilliant work and for restoring to Christ what had been stolen from Him -- His education and the important position He held in the Jewish society of His day. As Dr. Bradford points out, it's an extreme insult to call someone uneducated who has reached the highest level of education possible -- even to the point where one has surpassed all the teachers and has climbed to a level no one has ever reached before. How could we expect anything less from the very Son of God?
There were questions and objections along the way, but Dr. Bradford addressed every one of them, and did so brilliantly. I highly recommend this book. Who Christ was, and is, on ALL levels, should be of greatest importance to all Christians. (And to everyone.) Don't miss out on this book because of blind preconceptions. It's eye opening and inspiring."
D. Kennedy (Colorado)
"For me slotting in this alternative for Jesus' background was easy. What's more it was like throwing a
switch and have all the lights come on at once."
Geneida, Brisbane, Australia
"Might I say how much your book has impacted me - changed my thinking completely. Thank you."
Pastor Breeanna Rennie, Australia
"Until I read your book "The Jesus Discovery" going on 7 times now, researching and your e-mails, and God,
Jesus and the Holy Spirit opening up my mind, I would have had a blank look,. too!
Even Christmas cards have Jesus as homeless, carpenter. Too much brain washing over the centuries"
Richard Williams, Carlsbad, New Mexico
