A book detailing the Lords last few hours on earth,from the passover feast to the horrific death on the cross.
This well researched book offers fresh insight into the exact nature of both the Jewish Passover and crucifixion its self, as a slow agonizing death,designed as both torture and execution by the Romans for the very worst offenders.
A book that in many ways sheds a new and lucid look at the very events that did indeed change the world.
A recommended read for both Christians and non-Christians alike.
The background information of the culture at that time and the detailed descriptions of the events had me feeling like I was a part of the crowd observing all that was happening. I read it during Holy Week and rejoiced at the resurrection!
My pastor chose this book for out 7-week Lenten study and the insight it has brought to that last 24 hours of Jesus' life is amazing. A 'should-read' for all who want a better understanding of that last day......
