Title: A Shift In Time
Sub-Title: Finding The Real Historical Jesus
By: Lena Einhorn
Size covers (front and rear): 6.1875" x 9.25"
Front and back Flap: 3.5"x 9.25”
Spine = .625”
Bleed elements must extend beyond the document size (final trim) by 0.125" on all 4 sides
Allow: .25" between covers and flaps to allow for flap wrap
On Spine: allow room for publisher’s logo 1” from bottom
Description on front flap: [allow for 250 words]
On back cover: [allow for portrait author and 150 words]
Please design as one cover, then on approval, I will need a separate psd for each:
1. the front cover with all fonts,
2. a copy of the spine with all fonts,
3. a copy of the flaps with all fonts and
4. a copy of the back cover (no text except for back logline).
All these separate elements are needed to complete the InDesign final files and allow for adjustments later please. However, if the front image wraps around to the back, that is fine, it can be one image (one psd) for the front, spine and back (not flaps).

HAVE WE FINALLY FOUND THE HISTORICAL JESUS?
The main problem facing those who try to find proof of Jesus is the dearth of historical evidence. We have only one undisputed first century source which mentions him: the New Testament texts. This is strange, since the period was very well documented. Indeed, the kings, chief rabbis and Roman emperors mentioned in the New Testament are all found in many other historical texts written at that time. But Jesus is conspicuously absent.
This discrepancy has led most scholars to conclude that although Jesus from Nazareth probably existed, he must have been much less significant in his own time than the New Testament suggests. A minority consider Jesus an entirely mythological character. But have these scholars really kept their eyes fully open?
In the process of doing a project on the historical Jesus, former medical researcher and current author and film maker Lena Einhorn stumbled upon a surprising finding: When she compared the New Testament with the narratives of first century historian Josephus she discovered a large number of parallel events – involving a messianic leader very similar to Jesus. But nobody had previously made the connection. How is this possible? Well, the likely reason is that in the texts of Josephus these events consistently occurred twenty years later than in the New Testament. Twenty years, with precision, every time.
Could there have been a conscious effort among those writing or compiling the New Testament to move the actual occurrences to an earlier period? And if so, would the reason have been to eliminate alternate, and even contradictory, accounts of the life of Jesus?
