"Jesus Who's Other Name Was Joash" is an exceptional book. It deals with the true story of Joash/Jesus, a historical personage and tragic ruler who according to the Hebrew records was the only surviving descendant of King David and Solomon. Fate was kind to him once but never more; for after he narrowly escaped the murderous hand of his grandmother Athaliah who used the death of her son Ahaziah to carry out her bloody crime known as the 'Slaughter of the Innocents', he became the tenth king of the Jews in Jerusalem - at only seven years of age. But forty years later he fell victim to the hostility of his house servants who accused him of killing the prophet Zechariah/John the Baptist and so participated in a conspiracy against him. Nevertheless they buried him in the city of his tribal patriarch David. This situation became the prototype for another event! After more than a thousand years Joash/Jesus awoke from his long sleep and returned to this earthly world again. In fact, one might say that he 'was given a head long after [his own head] had been cut off'.
