Stephen Mansfield paints a historically accurate picture of Jesus' death in his novel, Killing Jesus. Brilliant narrative -- if you've never been able to make it through the Scriptures, you'll find this book helpful to understand what all the fuss is about with Jesus' death. This is not religious, but rather an evidence-based narrative portraying the gritty reality of an execution in first century Jerusalem under Roman rule. A helpful section in the back lists numerous extrabiblical sources and so forth showing the historical basis for Jesus being, not a myth, but a real person.
This is not your typical Scripture study. Highly recommended for adults (children might find parts of this book upsetting).
Thank you to Worthy Press for offering me this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I am delighted to give this work five stars.
