The New Testament accounts of Jesus' crucifixion have stood at the bedrock of Christianity since it's birth in the 1st century, and they remain among the essential foundations of Western culture in the 21st. These Gospel narratives of the Passion - the arrest, trial, scourging, and execution of Jesus - cast the Jews as those responsible, directly and indirectly, for the death of their Messiah and the son of God. Cohen tracks the image of the Jew as the murderer of the Messiah and God from its origins to its most recent expressions. A great deal has been written about Christian anti-Semitism, its roots, and its horrific consequences in world history. This is the first book, however to focus on the powerful myth that has driven so much murderous hatred. An important addition to the literature on Jewish-Christian relations, it should appeal to a wide variety of readers in both communities.

Review:

Cohen offers readers a lucid and sophisticated understanding of the age-old phenomenon of anti-Semitism. From its earliest history to Mel Gibson, Cohen explores the issues which have allowed this hateful notion to persist. It is a book which is fascinating, frightening, and important. It will be of interest to both the specialist and the lay reader. (Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving)

About the Author:

He has taught Jewish history at Cornell University, The Ohio State University, and, most recently, at Tel Aviv University.
