Item Description...
Outline ReviewAlthough most Christians know the Easter story, most do not know the full story, according to historians Glenn Kimball and David Stirland. As part of the Hidden Treasure Series (which includes Kimball's Hidden Stories of the Childhood of Jesus) this installment offers convincing research suggesting that Herod and Pilate may not have been completely responsible for the death of Jesus. In fact, the authors claim that Pontius Pilate was once revered as a martyred saint (considering that he was blackmailed into condemning Jesus to death and was later killed as a result of the crucifixion). Pilate and his wife Claudia were even recognized on the Christian calendar for 200 years after the death of Christ. The authors also explore a more intricate and lesser-known plot behind Jesus' death. Plus, they discuss evidence that others were resurrected from the dead alongside Jesus. For lay Christians who would like to learn more of the historical truths behind the legend of Christ's life and death, this series is ideal.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Read  Apr 8, 2003
I must admit, I'm normally a person that finds it hard to stay with a book.
I received this book on a Friday evening and could hardly put it down all weekend, I finished it on Sunday morning!
I believe this account is as good as any of what happened.
I felt the story flowed well, and held my attention.
If you are open minded, it could spark your beliefs.
Enjoyed the book alot.
Dubious  Feb 26, 2003
This book relies on the credibility of varoious aporyphal sources. The author exhibits knowledge of current scholarship in his treatment of the synoptic gospels, but does not apply the same standard to the Gospel of John, which he treats as authentic, or at least the most authentic of the four gospels. The same is true in his treatment of apocryphal literature, which were written later than the gospels. His preference for these writings over the synoptic gospels is unclear.

The author's lack of source notes is irritating, especially considering the content of the book, which leads one to want to know more about the subject and the sources. Instead, he gives a list of source material at the end of the book.

For a more scholarly analysis, I recommend Raymond E. Brown's "Death of the Messiah." Or "Introduction to the New Testamont" by the same author.

Promising topic - sloppy execution.  Jul 31, 2000
Kimball presents a topic which deserves thorough investigation. His reliance upon apocryphal literature is not the weakness of this book; these works clearly hold much information which would clarify the cultural and political context of the crucifixion. I get the feeling, however, that his research was sketchy and extremely uncritical. How are we to accept the concept of the "Druid University" in England [was is accredited?] [where Kimball maintains Jesus and Pilate both studied!] with no further documentation.

The editing is extremely poor. I get the feeling this book is nothing but a transcript of wandering, not very well organized, spoken presentations. For example, although the book gives the text as "Master 'Mayhem'", this is clearly mistranscribed and reveals Kimball's theological background - which he tries to keep hidden. [Hint - check the city of publication.] Not that there is anything wrong with this;some of the most intriguing research springs from this theological source. The problem is, while good, solid scholarship should be the goal when dealing with this topic, what Kimball has given us is a rather informal, off the cuff, and extremely poorly written little book.

Merely listing a lot of books at the end does not constitute scholarship! Footnotes are used for a reason! Please, next timel, try to do the job right!

Forgeries, assumptions and wishful thinking.  May 17, 2000
I must say that I expected much more out of this book than it gave. First-off I had assumed by the title that there would be some semblance of scholarship behind it, but found none. In fact this is purely a fantasy world created for those who shell out money for things which support what they believe. It is obvious that this book was inspired by nothing but money and will thrive off of the sensationalism associated with fringe Christianity (the most lucrative customer base in existence). You too can make a bundle of cash simply by quoting forgeries and concocting another wild assumption about 'Christ'. Kimball references 'known forgeries' to support his case! This is absurd, to be polite. No serious theological scholar could possibly take this writer seriously, and neither should you. This is a work of fiction. I was extremely disgusted. I will gladly return to re-reading Gerald Massey and Godfrey Higgins, Jordan Maxwell and Acharya S., at least I know there is substance behind their claims and serious sholarship between the covers. I want my money back!
The Message, Not the Messanger  Dec 18, 1999
Just when you thought you knew it all or suspected you did'nt or were sure there must be more to the story comes Mr. Kimball with this eye opening view of a now somewhat obscure piece of history. As time bears out these hidden truths those critical of this work will be silenced. Keep an open mind!
