Jesus, three days before his death
THE STORY OF JESUS THE MAN, AS YOU’VE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE
Who was Jesus, beyond the symbols and the myths?
A man like any other â with fears and doubts â who was enraged by injustice.
Based on the latest historical research and archeological discoveries, Gilbert Bordes brings the story of Jesus to life: not just the nonviolent man, who preached love and freedom during the Roman occupation, but also the heir to the throne of Israel, whose popularity bothered those in power â Herod and Pontius Pilate â and irked the Temple priests.
During the three days following his arrival in Jerusalem, the fate of the prophet becomes clear, and he is condemned to death on the cross. These three days were essential to the history of the world.
The final days of a man who sacrificed himself for the future of Mankind
The story of a political crime
A novel as fascinating as it is gripping
Â«To me, Jesus can be understood on two levels: the human one, whose last days I depict here, and the one the historians depict, and the Jesus God that the Church preaches. The discovery of numerous manuscripts from the period (the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene, Judas, etc.) brought us closer to the actual person as I portray him in this novel.Â» GILBERT BORDES
