In general, a Jew is identified by either his ethnicity, Jewish race, or by his faith, Judaism. A Jew is recognized as a person who belongs to the Jewish race which is spread across the world. They are identified to be decent of Jewish lineage and have Jewish Heritage. The four gospels in the Bible echo a major part of Jewish history and practices of the Jews as they were written about the Jews themselves. These gospels have been fictionalized by many popular writers but the notable one among them is the legendary Jewish-American author Norman Kingsley Mailer. Mailer’s novel, The Gospel According to the Son, is kept through the lens of the theory of Equilibrium by Tsetevan Todorov. By enforcing the theory, this article uses this theory that states the five stages of a plot, which starts with Equilibrium and ends in New Equilibrium after a roller coaster ride of events. This article aims to use the theory of Equilibrium to find the cleverness of Mailer's fictional narration of the Gospel, concerning the idea that makes it more a plot of rise and fall than a settled style of narration.
