The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth
The temple in Jerusalem
A different sort of sacrifice
A hole in the corner
King of the Jews
You know where I am from
The fourth philosophy
Where is your fleet to sweep the Roman seas?
Zeal for your house
The voice crying out in the wilderness
By the finger of God
May your kingdom come
Who do you say I am?
No king but Caesar
God made flesh
If Christ has not been risen
Am I not an apostle?
The just one
True God from true God.
This work presents a meticulously researched biography of Jesus that draws on biblical and historical sources to place his achievements and influence against the turbulent backdrop of his time. Sifting through centuries of mythmaking, the author sheds new light on one of history's most influential and enigmatic characters by examining Jesus Christ through the lens of the tumultuous era in which he lived: first-century Palestine, an age awash in apocalyptic fervor. Scores of Jewish prophets, preachers, and would-be messiahs wandered through the Holy Land, bearing messages from God. This was the age of zealotry, a fervent nationalism that made resistance to the Roman occupation a sacred duty incumbent on all Jews. And few figures better exemplified this principle than the charismatic Galilean who defied both the imperial authorities and their allies in the Jewish religious hierarchy.
