In order to demonstrate how the crucifixion narrative emerged and changed over time, this historical primer on the death of Jesus includes an overview of the evidence that Jesus existed and was crucified, explanations of how crucifixion worked and why it was employed by the Romans, and descriptions of Jesus' death in early Christian literature in a logical progression from the earliest to latest.

Reviews

"Dewey's investigation of the the passion story in the gospels is not only learned and accessible but exciting: it should challenge the way we read our scriptures as well as our understanding of the past itself." --Karen Armstrong"An extraordinary achievement that puts early Christian treatments of Jesus' violent death on an entirely new footing." --Werner H. Kelber, Rice University emeritus"Dewey movingly shows how the death of Jesus was re-imagined in the face of suffering as a source of meaning and hope ... Meaning and hope: this book offers both." --James Carroll, author of The Cloister"The origins of the passion account are controversial, complicated, and confusing. Arthur Dewey has put forth a bold and radical proposal in way that is easily understood. This book changes the way we will look at the way the passion accounts came to be." --Bernard Brandon Scott, Phillips Theological Seminary
