KIRKUS REVIEW

Received too late for review this season, this is an historian's inquiry into the crucifixion of Jesus and the Gospel of Mark's apologetical transfer of responsibility from Pontius Pilate to the Jewish leaders. It is a revisionist interpretation based on the new evidence of The Dead Sea Scrolls which have revealed Jesus' connection with the Zealots, ""the Jewish resistance fighters against Rome.
