Overview

According to the Gospels, when Pontius Pilate was to pardon one Jewish prisoner in honor of the Passover, he offered the people a choice between Barabbas the Zealot and a rabbi known as Jesus the Nazarene. Though this was an actual historical event, their choice was symbolic as well. Under the yoke of Roman oppression, Barabbas responded with violence; in contrast, Jesus was willing to forgive. The Zealot vowed to free the nation; the rabbi showed how to free the soul. Whom did the people choose? They made the same choice that we continue to make even today: Barabbas....

The Logic in Ancient Prophecy reasons why Jesus should have been chosen instead. The work interprets "Revelation," a collection of visions recorded by a writer named John. The crux of John's visions have been placed during nineteenth century America; for example, the "famous prostitute" is depicted as the 1886 unveiling of the Statue of Liberty; and the two "beasts," the historical relationship between the United States and France. The work reveals the logical relationship that these visions have with actual places and events; also, how those events affect the way we perceive freedom in our lives today.

The Logic in Ancient Prophecy reasons that in these uncertain times freedom is threatened as never before. Yet, no form of government could ever preserve or take away the more spiritual way of the rabbi Jesus - forgiveness, not vengeance - so freedom is ours, and always will be.
