There met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who lived among the tombs; and no one could bind him anymore, even with a chain…. And Jesus asked him, "What is your name?" He replied, "My name is Legion, for we are many." --Mark 5:29 

The Secret Disciple offers a riveting and plausible alternative version of the advent of Christianity, based on a close reading of the gospels. This religious mystery story comes to the startling conclusion that the risen Jesus was in fact Legion (Jeremiah), the “secret disciple.” 

If you are among those who have always questioned the story of the resurrection or wondered about the family of Jesus, this book is for you. 


The Secret Disciple retells the Christ story in beautiful language, demystifying the resurrection miracle and envisaging Jesus as a true prophet of his times whose demon-haunted follower, Jeremiah, becomes his most devoted disciple, with startling consequences.  Readers also meet narrator Mary Magdalene, thick-headed Simon Peter, and James the younger brother of Jesus.  A magnificent and fascinating read. --Bill Schubart, author, The Priest
