KILLING JESUS


KILLING JESUS

BILL O'REILLY & MARTIN DUGARD    Book Number: 85894    Product format: Paperback

A fact-based account of Jesus's life and times featuring Julius Caesar, Cleopatra, Caesar Augustus, Herod the Great, Pontius Pilate and John the Baptist among the many legendary figures who rise up off the page in this seismic political and historical era and the events that made Jesus's death inevitable and changed the world forever. Nearly 2,000 years after he was brutally executed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow the teachings of Jesus and believe he is God. The Romans kept incredible records of the time, and a few Jewish historians in Palestine also wrote down the events of the day. The problem is that it wasn't until the last few months of Jesus' short life that he became the focus of establishment attention. Only his friends paid much heed to what Jesus was doing yet thankfully those friends did much to pass along verbally the narrative of the Gospels. But this is not a religious book, and the authors do not address Jesus as the Messiah, only as a man who galvanised a remote area of the Roman Empire and made very powerful enemies while preaching a philosophy of peace and love. In fact this is a violent story centred in both Judea and in Rome itself by two Roman Catholic authors in a superb historical investigation. "And the voice from Galilee, which would defy Caesar, offered a new kingdom in which each man could walk upright and bow to none but his god..." - Vermont Royster, 1949. 293pp in illustrated paperback.
