The Passover Plot: A New Interpretation of the Life and Death of Jesus
Traditional Christian belief, firmly based on the divinity of Jesus, is now being challenged, both by the discoveries of modern science and the research of biblical scholars. In this book, Dr Hugh Schonfield provides a new interpretation of Jesus - an interpretation which in no way detracts from his greatness or uniqueness. He argues that as master of his own destiny, Jesus directed his life, deliberately plotting his actions - which were to culminate in his crucifixion and resurrection - in order to fulfil the Messianic prophecies.
