Latest News: Jeffrey Bütz to appear in groundbreaking film on Paul and James: INFO

The Rev. Jeffrey J. Bütz, M.Div., S.T.M., is an ordained Lutheran minister and adjunct professor of World Religions at Pennsylvania State University.

 

His two critically acclaimed books are:

THE BROTHER OF JESUS (2005) and the recently released THE SECRET LEGACY OF JESUS (2009).

On this website you will find a treasure trove of information about Christianity's best kept secret: that Jesus had brothers and sisters, and his eldest brother, James, was the successor to Jesus and the first bishop of the first Christian church -- the Jerusalem Church --  making James in essence the first Pope!

So step inside, many more surprises await you.
