The execution--we all know this had to happen, it was the way it was supposed to happen. But reading Mansfield's details of these events, the grusome details, made it so much more unbearable to hear. What Jesus endured is explained in intricate detail, from the prophecy, the betrayals, the conspiracy to be rid of this rebel, this so-called rabbi, and of his teachings of peace. Even after 2013 years, Mansfield reminds us of what we still need to hear, that this brutal execution is our enduring proof of Jesus' love for all of us, and this will live on forever.

    Both the Roman historian Tacitus and the Jewish historian Josephus references Jesus. In other words, to those "historians" on this page who say there are no references to Jesus outside of the Bible, two contemporaries with ABSOLUTELY NO VESTED INTEREST IN JESUS' EXISTENCE, attest to his existence.

    4 STARS

    At times this was a hard book to read. It is important to look back and see what Jesus did for you and me. I like the facts and the explaining why certain followers did or said something. At times it was laid out logical. Other times I just wanted to cry reading about the torture.

    A lot of the details I have forgotten over the years. Like that their was three King Herod. I knew King Herod ordered all the boy babies under two to be killed. Did not know how gross he got before he died with his illness. I always figured that the number of boy babies was a lot higher that died. But one is to high.

    I also liked how they told of Jesus riding into Jerusalem and how Pontius Pilate rode into Jerusalem on the other side with all the troops and compared them.

    Another interesting fact was how many lambs were sacrificed in two hours at the temple.

    This is a good look and understanding why so many people wanted Jesus to be killed. How many different times they wanted him to be killed.

    This is a good book to read on Easter Weekend. Too really remember that Jesus is the Son of God. He died for us and he lives.

    Stephen Mansfield used a lot of different resources to write this book from. That you can see where he got his information from.

    The torture of all Jesus went through is very hard to read at times. At times very graphic. Explain just what happens when someone is crucified or scourged.

    I believe that Jesus did live. He lived his life for us as examples of what to do. That he did miracles of making wine out of water, raising the dead.

    This is the first book that I have read written by Stephen Mansfield. I would read more books by him in the future.

    I was given this book to read and be part of its book tour. In return I have given my honest opinion of this book.

    In 2013, two books with this title came out. I've read and own them both. This one is the better of the two. Read it. You will not be the same.
