"Unraveling theological and historical strands
in the sources of the Gospel narratives, Sloyan
seeks to disclose the social and political realities
of the trial of Jesus. Let a new generation of
Christian and Jewish interpreters take notice!"
David L. Tiede, Augsburg College
"This new edition of Sloyan's classic study offers a significant contribution to historical Jesus research and to ongoing efforts at improving the climate of contemporary Christian-Jewish relations. His exegetical expertise and knowledge of extra-biblical sources are matched by a dispassionate commitment to inquiry that refuses to settle for convenient solutions or to claim more than the evidence will allow.... Taking issue with many recent studies on the execution of Jesus, Sloyan demonstrates an exemplary devotion to critical responsibility, which, in the long run, will prove more satisfying than the 'quick fix' suggestions that have been proffered."
Mark Allan Powell, Professor of New Testament, Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, OH
"I am convinced that a serious and dispassionate inquiry into the trial of Jesus from the Gospels and contemporary sources is capable of doing something however little to improve the climate of Christian-Jewish discourse. This is true if only because so much that has been written on the trial that is harmful to good relations is demonstrably false."
