"This is a book about the most dramatic day in the history of the world, the day on which Jesus of Nazareth died. It opens at 6 P.M.—the beginning of the Hebrew day—with Jesus and ten of the apostles coming through the pass between the Mount of Olives and the Mount of Offense en route to Jerusalem and the Last Supper. It closes at 4 P.M. the following afternoon, when Jesus was taken down from the cross. . . . The fundamental research was done a long time ago by four fine journalists: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The rest has been added in bits and pieces from many men whose names span the centuries."—from the Foreword
Jim Bishop was a syndicated columnist and author of many bestselling books, including The Day Lincoln Was Shot, The Day Christ Died, and A Day in the Life of President Kennedy. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Bishop died in 1987.
“A helpful word picture of ‘the Jewish world’ at the time of Christ.”
“Intensely dramatic . . . makes one feel that the ‘greatest story ever told’ was here told for the first time.”
Debora Lynn5 Stars Out Of 5October 24, 2008Debora LynnI LOVE this book! It is about Jesus' last day on Earth, but it is interwoven with flashbacks to previous events and colorful descriptions of first century life and landscapes. Very educational and helps to draw you closer to Jesus. Please read this one!
