The Death of the Messiah
Raymond Edward Brown
From The Publisher:
Since its original publication in 1994 as a two-volume hardcover boxed set, "The Death of the Messiah" has lived up to early expectations and become the benchmark by which any future study of the Passion narratives will be measured. Now available in paperback, Raymond E. Brown's masterful study examines every detail of the four Gospel stories of the final agonizing days of Jesus' life. Where others simply describe the accounts of the death of the Messiah as if they were one seamless whole, Father Brown reads and explains each Gospel on its own terms and elucidates the themes that make each one unique. "The Death of the Messiah" is the ideal complement to Brown's Birth of the Messiah, as thorough and expert in its handling of the Passion narratives as his book on the infancy narratives of the Gospels.
From Library Journal:
Brown (The Birth of the Messiah , Doubleday, 1993, among many others) presents a detailed explanation of what the four evangelists ``intended and conveyed'' with their narratives of the passion and death of Jesus and ``translates'' the messages for modern readers. He assembles the four Gospel accounts into a unified story but maintains the distinctiveness of each account in the commentary. Brown has succeeded in producing a near oxymoron: a thorough survey of a huge mass of relevant scholarly literature that is accessible to the educated lay reader. Greek is transliterated and translated, procedures and terms are clearly explained, and the entire story is presented as a drama in four acts. While the book can be pleasurably read from start to finish, the organization and the indexes (not seen) make these volumes an easily used reference work. A required purchase for any serious New Testament collection.
