Although the focus of this text is to identify many inaccuracies
Although the focus of this text is to identify many inaccuracies of Mel Gibson’s 2004 film, Passion of the Christ, this book sifts through each phase of the Passion to objectively identify which facts can be proven through historic writings, mainly the four New Testament Gospels, which are based upon historical Jewish culture, laws, customs and tradition, and which were made solely for cinematic shock value. The Gospels should have been used by Gibson for a better historical resource. Much of the evidence provided in this text is taken from Matthew, Mark, and Luke, but mostly from John, and is also based upon information provided through prior examinations and photographs of the Shroud of Turin. Some questions posed in MURDER IN GOLGOTHA do go unanswered, but for the most, we are led CSI-style through the last four days of Jesus Christ’s mortal life. This is a compelling and captivating read, an active cold case, focused on the confirmed details of the torture and murder of Christ.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This is the first book to effectively tackle the historical inaccuracies of Mel Gibson's Passion film of 2004. As great the film was, many come away with impressions that were sensationalized and modified for the cinematic experience. A fresh modern cultural CSI approach that debunks personal choices that Gibson used in his film as opposed to John's Gospel. A telling read for those interested in artistic depictions of Jesus life versus what The Gospels and other historical texts really tell us.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
