Authors of the Passion Gospels present a double perspective: that of the time of Jesus and that of their own time following the destruction of the Temple. Within this historical context, the author addresses the questions of anti-Semitism and the family quarrels between Jews and Christians with the vitriol that was acceptable within their rhetorical tradition. Questions about Jesus’ Passion – his trial and the purpose of his suffering – are expertly answered in this re-release, which has a new introduction by the author.
