Foreword by Richard C. NickelsOriginally published in 1925, The Man Nobody Knows, by Bruce Barton,is a Christian classic, with over 600,000 copies sold. Founder and later Chairman of the Board of one of the world's largest advertisingagencies, Barton paints a picture of the real Jesus, the Messiah. One of the favorite books of Herbert W. Armstrong, The Man Nobody Knowsset the tone, the attitude, for the Church of God in recent times. It's arenewable resource, which can be mined time and again for spiritualinsights. This is one book I go back to, time and again.The real Jesus is not like the sissified, pale, sad, young man pictured on Sunday-school walls. He was not a physical weakling, but a strongcarpenter who slept outdoors with muscles so strong that when Hedrove the moneychangers out, nobody dared to oppose Him! He wasthe most popular dinner guest in Jerusalem and enjoyed a hearty laughand good wine. Jesus would never have been able to inspire mankind if He were not the dynamic leader He was.Honestly, yet reverently, Barton paints a picture of the real Yahshua of the Bible as a leader, an outdoor man, a sociable man, whose method worked, who spoke incredible words of wisdom, was a servant of all,and was indeed the Master worthy of worship.
The parables, major teachings of Jesus, are condensed and to the point, entirely unlike the drivel and nonsense you often find on Internet forums today. His language was marvelously simple, usually using oneand two-syllable words. There is hardly a sentence in His teachingwhich a child cannot understand. Sincerity illuminates strongly every word, and repetition in different ways drove home His points. Hisstories are unforgettable and timeless, eternal.Deserted by His home town, His best friend, His relatives, the crowd,and finally the eleven, the Savior nevertheless triumphed gloriously.Bloody and beaten, dying on a stake, Jesus still performed one last miracle. One of the robbers crucified next to Him said painfully, "Jesus,remember me, when thou comest into thy kingdom!"Barton concludes: "Read that, my friends, and bow your heads. You,who have let yourself picture Him as weak, as [only] a man of sorrows,uninspiring, glad to die. There have been many leaders who could callforth enthusiasm when their fortunes ran high. But He, when Hisenemies had done their worst, so bore Himself that a crucified felonlooked into His dying eyes and saluted Him as king."The Man Nobody Knows, by Bruce Barton, is in the public domain. "The life of Jesus, as we ordinarily read it," the Boston Herald wrote, "iswhat the life of Lincoln would be if we were given nothing of hisboyhood and young manhood, very little of his work in the WhiteHouse and every detail of his assassination... Jesus liked to dine out.He was the most popular dinner guest of Jerusalem... The reader is not shocked by this method of Mr. Barton's . . . Jesus seems even more thebeing for the ages."How It Came to Be WrittenTHE little boy sat bolt upright and still in the rough wooden chair, but his mind was very busy.This was his weekly hour of revolt.The kindly lady who could never seem to find her glasses would havebeen terribly shocked if she had known what was going on inside thelittle boy's mind."You must love Jesus," she said every Sunday, "and God."
