Jesus is not just an object of faith; he also was a figure in history. In his New York Times best-selling study, Zealot, Reza Aslan draws imaginatively on centuries of scholarship to present a portrait of Jesus as an unlettered Jewish peasant who emerged as a political revolutionary, a rebel against Rome and its representatives in Palestine, including the Temple priests. Dale Martin, a scholar of religion at Yale, calls the book "a serious presentation of one plausible portrait" of the person at the center of the New Testament story.
