The Passion of Christ is the story of the greatest tragedy and triumph in history. I have never found anything to compare with it.
This book began over two decades ago as a study of events surrounding the last week of the mortal life of Jesus Christ, as found in the New Testament. I began then to put together in my own mind the puzzle of the accounts of the Passion of Christ as told in the gospel accounts of the King James Version of the New Testament.
The gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John each provide unique details about the events leading to Jesus’ death. My goal in compiling this book was to: (1) identify the unique details from each of the gospels relating to the Passion; (2) to unify the material; and (3) to present it in an easy-to-read, narrative or story format.
The source for this book is the King James Version (1611) of the New Testament. While the book is completely based on scripture, I have updated the punctuation and paragraphing, altered some capitalization and pronouns, and added single and double quotation marks where appropriate. I have also added conjunctive or transitional words, without setting them off with brackets, and have deleted only an occasional word to help the flow of the narrative.
