SYNOPSIS: Moving beyond the carefully edited Gospel accounts of Jesus's life, combining impeccable research with authoritative analysis, the central theme of The Trial has stirred the minds and hearts of all mankind; why Jesus had to die. Is there a case for the rehabilitation of Judas? How old was Jesus when He went to the Cross? Was He in fact close to middle-age? Why was He allowed to remain free for so long when He posed such a threat to the religious, social and economic framework of the time? For the first time Jesus is seen not merely in historical perspective, but as a contemporary being. The Trial presents a passionate portrait of His life and brings new light on figures such as Pontius Pilate, Herod Antipas, Mary Magdalene and Mary and Martha of Bethany. This fresh and controversial assessment of the most important event in history will have a profound effect on believer and unbeliever alike. Gordon Thomas grew up in Palestine. After graduating in honours Scripture in England he returned to the Middle East as a foreign correspondent where four years in Egypt, Israel and Syria afforded him a rare opportunity to study the historical background of the Bible. In all he has written or co-authored twenty-six books, including Pontiff and The Year of Armageddon (with Max Morgan-Witts), and, in 1986, Desire and Denial.
