Reviews - What do our customers think?
a rare combination -- informative and suspenseful  Dec 27, 2006
John Wenham is an author with whom many should be familiar. He taught Greek at Oxford University for many years, and is the author of first-rate books like "Christ and the Bible" and "Redating Matthew, Mark, and Luke." This book continues his excellent history of writing scholarly and accessible books.

He lived in Jerusalem in 1945 and begins the book with a layout of the city, taking the reader on a mini-tour through the city. He shows you where the tomb probably was, where Mark's house would have been (site of the Last Supper), where Mary and Martha would have lived, Caiaphas' house, etc. By the end of the chapter, you feel like you are experiencing a taste of the city circa 30 AD. He then unfolds each of the characters in the resurrection accounts (Mary Magadalene, Joanna, Mary of Clopas). People who might have seemed unimportant (such as Joanna) take on fresh new import in the book.

He then takes the reader chronologically through the major events of Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Because he elaborated the geography, you can almost feel yourself with the disciples congregating into two locations on Saturday with disappointment and uncertainity. By tracing the paths of people to and from the tomb, Wenham renders each of the gospels with fresh perspective (for example Matthew being told from Bethany, and John from inside Jerusalem). You will see how beautifully the gospels harmonize and that apparent contradictions melt away with close reading.

Wenham interacts with scholarly critics in the book, and you will understand important themes of genre as the book unfolds.

This book is profitable for anyone who wants to deeply understand the gospels. It will change your understanding of the New Testament.
Easter Enigma  Nov 17, 2006
Are the resurrection accounts in conflict?

Many contemporary New Testament scholars would say yes and point to numerous inconsistencies and variations. But John Wenham takes these narratives and shows that it is possible to harmonize the accounts into a comprehensive historical sequence. A measure of reasoned conjecture and historical imagination is unavoidable in an effort like this, and the book does not claim to be more than a possible reconstruction. Not all will agree with Wenham's reasoning and conclusions, but his creative approach will contribute to a renewed interest in the historical context of the resurrection.

Compelling, factual  Feb 26, 2006
An engaging assimilation of the four gospel accounts of the resurrection.

The Bible's differing accounts of details of the resurrection seem to pose a problem for serious Bible students: how can scripture be historically accurate if the gospels don't agree? Whenham delves into the biographies of the witnesses and locates the places geographically. He makes good historical sense of scripture's seeming contradictions and forms a compelling argument for Jesus' resurrection.

An excellent apologetic resource that reads with all the interest of a detective story.
