Overview

From the Author

The cricifixion of Jesus was the most important event in the understanding of the life of Jesus. We all know the Biblical account of these events. However, one critical perspective has been kept secret for two thousand years. This perspective comes from those whom we have wrongfully held responsible for His death. Pilate and Herod have left their letters for us as a peek into this monumental event. These letters hold the secret to the reason that Pilate and his wife, Claudia Procula, were celebrated on the calendar of ancient Christian Holidays for two hundred years after the crucifixion. Few know that Pilate lost his life as a result of the crucifixion and was raised to the status of Sainthood by the earliest Christians.

The historical evidence cries out for the real story of Pilate. For the first time his story comes to us in Pilate's own words. It is the most spectacular story of faith in all the discoveries in recent history. The last story in the book is the account of Joesph of Arimathea at the time of the crucifixion recorded by his friend and fellow Sanhedrin Councilman, Nicodemus. These writings tell the spectacular story of the second greatest miracle at the time of the crucifixon. Joseph of Arimathea was not a stranger to the family of Jesus, nor a mere friend. He was the great 'Foster Father' of Jesus who provided for the Holy Family from the time of the death of Joseph who was married to the Virgin Mary.

The tomb in which Jesus was laid was a family tomb. Joseph of Arimthea's arrest at the time of the crucifixion and his miraculous escape has been held sacred and secret from the masses far too long. The witness accounts of others who were raised with Jesus from the dead have been widely known by the clergy of many traditions. These two 'Rabi' or 'Angels', depending on the source of the tales, have finally been made known. How many traditions of these resurrected men must be found before we will believe them?

This is a story of Easter that will last for centuries to come. We no longer have reason to be afraid of our own history.
