The Last Letters of Jesus: the Secret of the Nazarenes
by Antonio Sebastian
Palestine in the first century is a melting pot of Hebrew, Greek, Roman, and Oriental thought, a country at war with its own future.

Within the violence of animal sacrifice, he can see the destruction of the Jewish people.
