TORTURE -- INFANTICIDE -- BRUTALITY -- MURDER The World Would Never Be the Same "The execution of Jesus was a crime born of the streets, the barracks, the enclaves of the privileged, and the smoke-filled back rooms of religious and political power brokers. Its meaning lives in these places still." It is the most fiercely debated murder of all time. Its symbol is worn by billions of people worldwide. Its spiritual meaning is invoked daily in time-honored rituals. In Killing Jesus, New York Times best-selling author Stephen Mansfield masterfully recounts the corrupt trial and grisly execution of Jesus more than two thousand years ago.

This is an InstaRead Summary of Killing Jesus by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. Below is a preview of the earlier sections of the summary: A Note to Readers Two thousand years have passed since the execution of Jesus of Nazareth. Today, 2.2 Billion people believe he is God and attempt to follow his teachings. A lot has been written about this man who shaped the world. But little is known for sure. While the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are written from a spiritual perspective, this title is a fact based book and relies on evidence from classical texts. The authors do not refer to Jesus as the messiah. They present him as a man who held the attention of many while teaching a message of peace and love. The powerful enemies he made turn the story into a violent one. To understand Jesus' accomplishments, one must understand the time in which he lived. Rome was the world superpower. Life expectancy could be less than forty years and human life wasn't worth a lot. Jesus would offer people hope. Book I: The World of Jesus Chapter One Early one morning in March, 5 AD, soldiers descend on the city of Jerusalem. They have been ordered to kill every baby boy under the age of two. Reining King Herod the Great is cruel and especially brutal towards anyone that threatens his sovereignty. Over the past thirty years of rule, he has outwitted every plot against him. Jewish prophets, for centuries, have been predicting the arrival of a new king to lead their people. Five signs were said to be needed to confirm the messiah's birth. There was to be the appearance of a giant star; the baby would be born in Bethlehem and be a descendant of King David. The child's mother would also be a virgin and important men would travel to worship him. Herod knows that the first two have already occurred. What he doesn't know is that actually all five may have come to pass. Wealthy scholars known as magi have visited the baby Jesus. His mother, Mary, is insistent that she remains a virgin even though she was pregnant. Jesus is also a descendent of King David. The magi had alerted Herod to the birth when they visited him on the way to see Jesus. They assume that he would know where the child was. Herod is a Jewish convert but does not practice the faith. He knows nothing about the teachings and summons religious scholars to tell him what they know. Herod attempts to trick the magi and asks them to return to his place after they find the child. He says that he too would like to know where the baby is so he can worship him. When they do not return, Herod sends his soldiers to Bethlehem. From the palace, the Herod can see the temple of Jerusalem. It was first built by King Solomon in the tenth century BC. After its destruction by the Babylonians in 586 BC it was rebuilt. Herod had also recently expanded it. By the time of the infant massacre, Jesus and his parents have already visited the temple. During one visit an old man named Simeon approached them and asked to hold the baby. He prayed over Jesus and assured the surprised parents that their child was going to cause the rise and fall of many in Israel. He also warned Mary that a sword would pierce her own soul...

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. Killing Jesus by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard - A 15-minute Instaread Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary:A Note to Readers O’Reilly explains that he and Martin Dugard wrote this book with one goal in mind, to share the truth about who Jesus was. He emphasizes that it is important to understand the tumultuous times that Jesus lived in if a person hopes to understand who he was and what he stood for. O’Reilly and Dugard hope to shed some new light upon the struggle between dominant Roman leaders and the legendary man called Jesus. Chapter 1 In 5 BC soldiers in Bethlehem, Judea, were ordered by King Herod to find and kill baby Jesus. Herod, age sixty-nine and suffering from many physical ailments, had grown insecure about rumors that a new King of the Jews had been born. To make certain the child would be murdered, Herod ordered the slaughter of every male less than two years old. Nobody questioned his decree because all knew of his thirty-year reign of terror. Even his own soldiers feared Herod’s wrath. Despite two visits to Jerusalem by Jesus and his family in his first month and a half of life, they managed to escape undetected by Herod and his soldiers.
Two stories emerge when discussing Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's Killing Jesus: A History (O'Reilly, 2013): one is narrative, the other is scriptural. From a scriptural perspective, Killing Jesus is a retreat back to the so-called "second quest" studies of the historical Jesus. First quest studies were fantastic narratives, loosely based on fact. In second quest studies like Killing Jesus, the author defers to the canonical gospels. In third quest studies such as Reza Aslan's Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth (Aslan, 2013), the author may defer to non-canonical works, both contemporary and modern. The result is that the Jesus of Nazareth depicted in Killing Jesus differs little from the Jesus depicted in the bible, which is likely how O'Reilly's readers would prefer to know Jesus. As a result, Killing Jesus is a successful exercise in worldview maintenance.From a narrative perspective, Killing Jesus is a testosterone-fueled romp through first century Judea, complete with whips, prostitutes, pederasts, STDs, belly dancers, corrupt officials and tragic endings. Children are hacked to death, slaves are cast off cliffs for fun, brothers steal from brothers. This is not the reverential stuff one typically sees in a story about the historical Jesus, but this is Bill O'Reilly, who is to Fox News what Hunter Thompson was to Rolling Stone magazine.This guide has three parts. Part I is a detailed discussion of some of the more controversial passages in Killing Jesus. Part II is a survey of some of the early criticism of the book. Part III is an independent criticism of Killing Jesus.SPOILER ALERT! This guide discusses many of O'Reilly and Dugard's observations and conclusions. If you are reading or intend to read Killing Jesus, do yourself a favor, close this window, open a second tab, and purchase the book. Also, as a preface, please note that this guide will refer to O'Reilly as the author of Killing Jesus. Clearly, Dugard did most of the actual research and writing. His omission here is not a slight, it simply acknowledges the reality that the book would not have the high profile it now has without O'Reilly's imprimatur. Killing Jesus is currently #2 on the New York Times' combined print and e-book non-fiction list.Also please note this guide is of the original edition of the book, a new "unabridged" version is currently available.Bible citations are to the New Revised Standard Version.
