Product Description

Judas Iscariot...the name of Judas conjures up the ultimate betrayer. What could possibly bring him to such a vile decision to betray Jesus? Tosca Lee brilliantly captures Judas' life; why he chose to follow Jesus when he was a respected scholar, what he witnesses day after day being near and speaking with Jesus. You will be captivated by every nuance of Judas' story as he walked with Jesus and Judas' history that led him to that point. Why did Jesus choose the path that he chose, from angering those in esteemed positions by not just allowing those who were "unclean" near him, but encouraging their presence? Judas struggled to understand Jesus' motives and questioned them all along the way. The places where you question how and what Jesus did are brilliantly speculated by Tosca Lee in the amazing story of Iscariot.

Publisher's Description

Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Tosca Lee brilliantly adapts the life of Judas Iscariot into a dazzling and award-winning work of fiction—humanizing the man whose very name is synonymous with betrayal.

History has called him many things: Thief. Liar. Traitor. Reviled throughout history and infamous for his suicide, he is the man whose very name is synonymous with betrayal . . .

And he is the only disciple that Jesus called “friend.”

From the acclaimed bestselling author of Havah: The Story of Eve, Iscariot is a compelling portrait of biblical history’s most maligned character—from his tumul­tuous childhood to his emergence as the man known to the world as the betrayer of Jesus. But even more, it is an extraordinary view into the life of Jesus that forces us to reexamine everything we thought we knew about one of the most famous—and infamous—religious icons in history.

    This review was written for Iscariot.
    Is it possible to give a 10 star rating on a 5 star scale? If not, it should be, because Iscariot deserved it! What a fantastic read! I loved the way Tosca Lee presents Judas without ever glorifying him and yet she totally glorified Jesus. The story caused me to fall more in love with Jesus just by her representation of his amazing love and devotion. Ms. Lee is an amazing author already, but Iscariot took her writing to a new dimension of outstanding. This book will knock the socks off any reader.

    This book is well written and makes the reader think. Tosca Lee has a way of bringing the characters to life and drawing the reader in. This is one of the few fictional books that I have recommended to my husband to read. Well-researched and awesome for bible studies.

    This review was written for Iscariot.
    Jesus absolutely comes alive on these pages - many times I was in awe with tears. I have read "Demon" and "Havah" and Lee is meticulous in her historical and theological research. Her books challenge you to study the Word for yourself and give you creative imagination in that which the bible is silent. You will learn so much about the particular culture and Jewish expectations which Jesus entered into when He walked the earth. But like previous reviewer "Patrick" I struggled with the depiction of Judas. In the book of Luke 6:26, Judas is said to be "faithless" & "traitor". I looked up as many scriptures I could find on Judas and not all of them fit Tosca's rendition of Judas. Lee paints her Judas as torn between his love for Jesus and his own struggles, but might the Judas of the bible be a man that never really accepted Jesus as the Messiah? That went through the motions, playing the part of a disciple, but never truly believing, trusting and relying on the One that could save him? As Judas ends his life, does Lee imply that Judas is perhaps repentive? Or, perhaps, was Judas, not unlike so many tares among the wheat today, one that sits in our churches and has never truly acknowledged sin, abhorring that sin that separates us from a Holy God and thirsting to know the Son intimately as the only hope from the Day of Wrath? Judas walked and talked and ate with Jesus, saw the miracles, heard the words of Life, looked in the eyes of God Himself and never really knew Him. He was blinded and his heart was deceived.

    It's surely a worthy read, but let the bible alone dictate the true story to you. Let it challenge you to sift through the inconsistencies and study for yourself, and finally to "examine yourself to see if you are in the faith." 2 corin. 13:5.

    This review was written for Iscariot.
    It is late as I pen these words. The light should have been long turned out but I'm afraid I won't be able to call it a night with these thoughts pressing in my mind and begging for release after turning the last page of Lee's Iscariot. The first thought that honestly came to mind was: I'll not be taking this journey again anytime soon. It took me one transforming month to go through it and let me warn you that this mere, five star review does not do the book justice. I was not even planning on reading Iscariot at first, until I saw the trailer and a question the author asked ringed in my head: Would I have done the same as Judas?

    Scandalous, tenebrous, yet nonetheless grandly written, Iscariot is a masterpiece that unfolds through the broken pieces of hearts, transcending even my wildest comprehension of what we call the Gospel. It refuses to be limited by religious barriers. It is unlimited, restless and wild in its search for peace. It challenges the reader time and time again and you will not be able to avoid the questions it asks. Tosca Lee proves with this work that she is a force to be reckoned with in Christian fiction.

    The Judas presented in this novel is a man who constantly wrestles with doing his or God's will. A strict follower of the law, a man starving for the approval of others, of someone, of God, he suddenly throws all caution to the wind when he chooses to follow a mysterious Man, desperately seeking for a sign that The Lord has not abandoned him. Rumour has it that this Jesus is the Messiah. Elation and fear both claim Judas as he beholds what no man in Israel has seen before. Miracles ranging from healing the sick, to calling the dead, the demon-possessed out of the mouth of captivity. Desperation, confusion and pain are Judas and the disciples' companions many days. The Son of man comes, wreaking havoc in every last piece of security and sanity they were hanging on to in trying to do the right thing, and giving no hint as to what He is about to accomplish, Jesus simply tells the disciples to follow him. Judas feels torn between his loyalty to this new Lord, his family, the law. He constantly reasons within himself : I am unclean. My past is unclean, my heart is unclean, following this man, according to the law, is unclean.... but this is where freedom is. Where Love is. Where this manner of Man named Jesus is. An unpredictable man. A man carrying more sorrows than any man should ever be allowed. Oh- so- needed according to Judas, who refers to him as His greatest friend. Jesus is compassion. Jesus reaches out and understands, but He's also as dangerous as fire. He is danger, repeatedly thinks Iscariot as the disciples carry him away from crowds ready to stone him, because of his parables and brazen words. Yet in the midst of the pain, confusion and dizziness, to the bone-weary followers He constantly asks : Do you love me? This question among many other elements in the story sprung to my eyes like tears many times. Iscariot is a battle between Heaven and Hell. Between the destiny and the destined. Between my will and His. A love story forgotten but brought back to life. A story between Him and me.

    Exceptional writing. Funny moments many times throughout, and overall a very powerful tale.

    Tosca has done it again! This book was so amazing in more ways that I can think to share. It touched on emotions within myself that brought me to tears and had me yet again praising God for his devotion to us. The way Tosca shows Jesus and portrays the times is not only accurate but relational on so many levels - she has a way of making things really real yet at the same time she does a phenomenal job in the fictional aspect of the story. Two thumbs up!
