Jesus was a Jew, living in a Jewish culture under Jewish laws that governed the people of Israel at a time of conflict with their Roman overlords. A Book of Evidence takes into consideration the history of first-century Jerusalem. It is a unique presentation of the passion event, written from a Jewish legal standpoint. Kuehl explains why and how Jesus came to trial, and how the politics of the age and a corrupt government played a role in bringing him to death. She also examines the numerous crimes Jesus was accused of, resulting in a reasonable explanation of the real blasphemy that led to his conviction. Kuehl then investigates crucifixion as it was known in first-century Jewish law. Was the Jewish trial legal? Was it a trial at all? Was there a Roman trial or a simple hearing? Where was the real execution site and burial tomb? All these questions are answered in this gripping book. Follow, step by step, along the path of Jesus during the Passover, from the Garden of Gethsemane, through the trials, to the brutality of the execution, and on to the tomb from which he was resurrected.
