About Ralph Ellis

Life is a challenge and Ralph Ellis has faced more than a few. He started as a software engineer, but moved into the equally technical spheres of mineral surveying, aviation, and palaeoclimatology, but always maintained and built upon the archaeological interests and research of his father.

As a historian, Ralph has toured the Mediterranean for more than three decades searching for secular similarities and parallels between the apparently disparate disciplines of history and theology. And the research has been very fruitful with many new fundamental discoveries being made, mostly in Egypt. But Ralph has finally produced an extraordinary theological discovery – the true identity and genealogy of the biblical Jesus in the historical record. This painstaking and complex historical crossword puzzle has taken more than two decades to put together, but at last the real King Jesus can step out from the millennial shadows.
