BOOK EXCERPT:

Pontius Pilate's report to Caesar on the killing of Jesus at the hands of the Sanhedrin; as found in Vatican and Eastern Roman Empire libraries. The story of the crucifixion from the first hand view of the Roman Procurator of Judea.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This concise commentary on the Gospels and Acts, excerpted from the Fortress Commentary on the Bible: The New Testament, engages readers in the work of biblical interpretation. Contributors from a rich diversity of perspectives connect historical-critical analysis with sensitivity to current theological, cultural, and interpretive issues. Introductory articles describe the challenges of reading the New Testament in ancient and contemporary contexts, as well as exploring other themes ranging from the Jewish heritage of early Christianity to the legacy of the Apocalyptic. These are followed by the survey “Jesus and the Christian Gospels.” Each chapter (Matthew through Acts) includes an introduction and commentary on the text through the lenses of three critical questions: The Text in Its Ancient Context. What did the text probably mean in its original historical and cultural context? The Text in the Interpretive Tradition. How have centuries of reading and interpreting shaped our understanding of the text? The Text in Contemporary Discussion. What are the unique challenges and interpretive questions that arise for readers and hearers of the text today? The Gospels and Acts introduces fresh perspectives and draws students, as well as preachers and interested readers, into the challenging work of interpretation.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The powerful and riveting new book in the multimillion-selling Killing series by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard Autumn 1944. World War II is nearly over in Europe but is escalating in the Pacific, where American soldiers face an opponent who will go to any length to avoid defeat. The Japanese army follows the samurai code of Bushido, stipulating that surrender is a form of dishonor. Killing the Rising Sun takes readers to the bloody tropical-island battlefields of Peleliu and Iwo Jima and to the embattled Philippines, where General Douglas MacArthur has made a triumphant return and is plotting a full-scale invasion of Japan. Across the globe in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his team of scientists are preparing to test the deadliest weapon known to mankind. In Washington, DC, FDR dies in office and Harry Truman ascends to the presidency, only to face the most important political decision in history: whether to use that weapon. And in Tokyo, Emperor Hirohito, who is considered a deity by his subjects, refuses to surrender, despite a massive and mounting death toll. Told in the same page-turning style of Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, Killing Patton, and Killing Reagan, this epic saga details the final moments of World War II like never before.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Two stories emerge when discussing Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's Killing Jesus: A History (O'Reilly, 2013): one is narrative, the other is scriptural. From a scriptural perspective, Killing Jesus is a retreat back to the so-called "second quest" studies of the historical Jesus. First quest studies were fantastic narratives, loosely based on fact. In second quest studies like Killing Jesus, the author defers to the canonical gospels. In third quest studies such as Reza Aslan's Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth (Aslan, 2013), the author may defer to non-canonical works, both contemporary and modern. The result is that the Jesus of Nazareth depicted in Killing Jesus differs little from the Jesus depicted in the bible, which is likely how O'Reilly's readers would prefer to know Jesus. As a result, Killing Jesus is a successful exercise in worldview maintenance.From a narrative perspective, Killing Jesus is a testosterone-fueled romp through first century Judea, complete with whips, prostitutes, pederasts, STDs, belly dancers, corrupt officials and tragic endings. Children are hacked to death, slaves are cast off cliffs for fun, brothers steal from brothers. This is not the reverential stuff one typically sees in a story about the historical Jesus, but this is Bill O'Reilly, who is to Fox News what Hunter Thompson was to Rolling Stone magazine.This guide has three parts. Part I is a detailed discussion of some of the more controversial passages in Killing Jesus. Part II is a survey of some of the early criticism of the book. Part III is an independent criticism of Killing Jesus.SPOILER ALERT! This guide discusses many of O'Reilly and Dugard's observations and conclusions. If you are reading or intend to read Killing Jesus, do yourself a favor, close this window, open a second tab, and purchase the book. Also, as a preface, please note that this guide will refer to O'Reilly as the author of Killing Jesus. Clearly, Dugard did most of the actual research and writing. His omission here is not a slight, it simply acknowledges the reality that the book would not have the high profile it now has without O'Reilly's imprimatur. Killing Jesus is currently #2 on the New York Times' combined print and e-book non-fiction list.Also please note this guide is of the original edition of the book, a new "unabridged" version is currently available.Bible citations are to the New Revised Standard Version.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Within the Johannine narrative sequence, the gathering of the Sanhedrin, and its condemnation of Jesus, is a reaction to Jesus' sign of raising Lazarus from the dead. Unlike the synoptics, where the council charges Jesus with blasphemy, the Johannine Jesus is condemned for doing signs capable of inciting unrest and the intervention of the Roman imperial authority. Thus it is to prevent the social-political consequences of Jesus' action, rather than the preservation of religious orthodoxy, that prompts the council to act. By shifting his condemnation from the religious to the political level, the evangelist also extends the ranks of Jesus' opponents to include the entire political leadership structure. In the light of the discussion on the context of the gospel, and applying the synchronic method, this work argues that the political undertones in the text point to the influence of the social-political realities of the time, and opens another dimension to the understanding of the Fourth Gospel.
