Persian: Ofoq Publication has just launched the Persian version of Lebanese poet, painter and philosopher Khalil Gibran's Jesus: The Son of Man, recently translated by Musa Bidaj, in the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Gibran who combined Eastern and Western philosophies and who was influenced by his childhood in Lebanon, his adopted America and also from his time studying art in Paris, wrote his story of Jesus as his last work. Here he tried to visualise the social and secret life of Christ as seen and shrouded by the emotions of people who knew Christ in his everyday life. Gibran wrote his final creative piece in 1928.
