Jesus of Nazareth died on a cross at the hands of the Romans around the year 30 C.E. Thousands of others perished in the same way, and many people before and since also suffered gruesome torments. Why then is Jesus uniquely and universally remembered for his suffering death? In this timely, expert, and fully engaging account, acclaimed biblical scholar and historian Gerard Sloyan discusses:





  • how Jesus died
  • who was responsible for his death
  • how his death came to be seen as redemptive
  • how accounts of his death figured in the rise of anti-Jewish sentiment

For all who wonder what really happened in the passion and death of Jesus, this book will provide compelling information and resources - including study questions and suggestions for further reading.
