Product Description

The Day Christ Died supplies us with all the colorful data from everyday life in first-century Palestine to make "the greatest story ever told" more credible and alive than would seem possible on the printed page. Bishop's attention to the fine points weaves a rich tapestry for the entire Passion story which does not close without a careful description of how the body of Jesus was prepared for burial.

Publisher's Description

"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

    I 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!
