The Passover Plot (pb)
Product Descriptionby Hugh J. Schonfield
Finally back in print, this special 40th anniversary edition of Dr. Schonfield's international multimillioncopy bestseller is set to rock the establishment view of the life of Jesus all over again.
There is probably no other figure in modern Jewish historical research who is more controversial or famous than Hugh J. Schonfield, who once said: "The scholars deplore that I have spilled the beans to the public. Several of them have said to me, 'You ought to have kept this just among ourselves, you know.'"
What he did to "spill the beans" was present historical evidence suggesting that Jesus was a mortal man, a young genius who believed himself to be the Messiah and deliberately and brilliantly planned his entire ministry according to the Old Testament prophecies--even to the extent of plotting his own arrest, crucifixion and resurrection.
Since Schonfield's death in 1988, his popularity and the interest in his prodigious work, which included over 40 books, has drawn increasing attention, particularly outside Judaism. In fact, it is probably fair to say that his contribution to the Gentile understanding of Jewish aspirations among those within the Christian cultural framework has been without parallel. In true Christian tradition, he has also been the cause of much contention. What is the truth about the Crucifixion? This book may shatter your faith - or strengthen it. It may awe you - or anger you. But you will not be able to dismiss the evidence or the message it delivers! It shows us the historical evidence that Jesus was a mortal man, a young genius who believed himnself to be the Messaih and deliberately and brilliantly planned hsi entire ministry according to the Old Testament prophecies - even to the extent of plotting his own arrest, crucifixion and resurrection.
