Michael Baigent's "Jesus Papers"

In the early 1960s, an antique collecter found two papyrus letters written in Aramaic that, judging by the other objects found at the same site, he was able to date at around A.D.34. They were letters written to the Jewish court, the Sanedrin. The writer called himself BANI MESHIHA - the Messiah of the Children of Israel. He wrote these letters defending himself against a charge made by the Sanedrin that he had been calling himself *son of God.*
The messiah explained that what he meant was not that he was *God* - but that the *Spirit of God* was in him - not that he was PHYSICALLY the son of God, but rather that he was spiritually an adopted son of God. And he added that everyone who felt similarly filled with the *spirit* was also a *son of God.* (Michael Baigent, THE JESUS PAPERS)
Michael Baigent claims to have physically seen these twn documents but says that their owner, the private collecter in the story above, would not allow him to photograph any portion of the texts. So, this leaves us with the only proof of their existence: Baigents word. He cannot give the name of the antique collector, either. In any case, it is not that far from reality to speculate that Jesus was indeed a mortal man: point of fact is, common sense DEMANDS such speculation.
