Behold the Man (The Jerusalem Chronicles #3) by Bodie Thoene

Into the Wild

Read Behold the Man (The Jerusalem Chronicles #3) Online Free - Encounter the death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth in this culmination of the Jerusalem Chronicles.

How could Jesus—who preached righteousness before God, and love and mercy toward neighbors—be so hated and pursued? To the Temple officials, he was a threat to the livelihood and authority of the priesthood. To Herod Antipas, he was a threat to his ambition to be the King of the Jews. And to the Roman overlords, he was seen as a dangerous threat; a man who commanded an army of the common people. He could heal wounds, offer miraculous provisions, and even raise from the dead. If Jesus had accepted popular acclaim and become an earthly king, he would have been unstoppable.

Jesus’s last days are explored through three people who interacted with him: Governor Pilate, for whom Judea will either make or break his career; Pilate’s wife, Claudia, desperately seeking aid for her much loved, crippled son; and Centurion Marcus Longinus, caught in the middle between loyalty to the Empire, love for Claudia, and an ever-increasing belief in Jesus as the Son of God. After encountering Jesus, none of them will ever be the same.

Another book that I read to Diana. We can't do much anymore after her stroke, so I read to her to spend time together. Diana has always loved to have someone to read to her - and I like to do just that. The theme of this book was Pilate and his wife, Claudia. For some reason, I had always thought...

I normally love everything that the Thoenes write. This series and in particular this book does not live up to their usual standards. The character of Pilate is one dimensional and does not reflect the true dilema that he faced standing face to face with Jesus. Too much of the plot revolved aroun...

A book so grand that no words can explain the depth of the emotions, plot, characters, and what not! Here I am, attempting to present to the readers, the best effort in my capability, the promising things about this book.The story begins with the key players of the Roman history at the time when...

I really liked the first book of the series but this one and the previous book were much weaker. This one, in particular, ends rather abruptly when so much more could have been said about the resurrection. Interesting how the people you know from the biblical narrative are fleshed out but actuall...

While I am very familiar with the stories of Jesus and his ministry and death, I enjoyed the fictionized back story as well. Highly recommend this book to those who are Christians and to those who are curious about Jesus.

This was a good book to read. I enjoyed this book, even though overall I knew the ending. They made the events come to life by developing the characters. I've always enjoyed their books
