Bestselling author Bill O'Reilly takes on the man and his world in a historical examination of Jesus.

Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked across Galilee; everywhere he traveled he gained followers. His contemporaries are familiar historical figures: Julius Caesar, Caesar Augustus, Herod the Great, Pontius Pilate. It was an era of oppression, when every man, woman, and child answered to the brutal rule of Rome. In this world, Jesus lived, and in this volatile political and historical context, Jesus died—and changed the world forever.

Packed with fascinating details, this fast-paced narrative will transport readers back in time. In an exploration of the political and social landscape at the time of Jesus’s life, O’Reilly takes on the questions surrounding his death. Who was involved in the trial and sentencing of Jesus? What circumstances led to his conviction? What were the motivations in killing Jesus? In the same way that the author gave fresh insight into the lives and times of Lincoln and Kennedy, this is an intimate portrait of the Jesus of history.

Adapted from O’Reilly’s bestselling historical thriller Killing Jesus and geared toward young readers, The Last Days of Jesus is a riveting, fact-based account of the life and times of Jesus that is sure to make kids reconsider the man they thought they knew.
