The Day Christ Died Author:Jim Bishop Jesus knew He was to die, He knew He was to die betrayed, and He knew He was to die suffering as a man. As we follow His last day on earth, His divine and human sides are constantly juxtaposed, culminating in the terrible hours when His divinity lay before and behind Him, and He was left alone to endure the agony of the cross as a man, in order ... more »to point the way to man's salvation.
Jim Bishop has re-created the last hours of His life with reverence, with dramatic skill, and with a deep understanding of men in political life and the Roman and Jewish worlds of the time.
