The acclaimed author of Jews, God, and History considers the historical Jesus “in the spirited, witty, fascinating manner in which his scholarship excels” (Bookviews).
Biblical historian Max Dimont, author of the classic Jews, God, and History, explores the mystery surrounding the predictions Jesus made about his fate. Examining the gospel, Dimont re-creates the drama in three acts using his knowledge of the events recorded in the Bible. Thoughtful and fascinating, Appointment in Jerusalem examines the questions that have surrounded religion for centuries. Who was Jesus, the Christian messiah or a member of a Jewish sect? Dimont’s insight is intelligent and surprising.
