Publisher's Summary

Millions of people have thrilled to best-selling authors Bill O'Reilly and historian Martin Dugard's Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln, works of nonfiction that have changed the way we view history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor details the events leading up to the murder of the most influential man in history: Jesus of Nazareth. Nearly 2,000 years after this beloved and controversial young revolutionary was brutally killed by Roman soldiers, more than 2.2 billion human beings attempt to follow his teachings and believe he is God. Killing Jesus will take listeners inside Jesus' life, recounting the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable and changed the world forever.

    "Loved it"

    As a Christian and a lover of history this book was a match made in heaven. It is excellent and will present the life (and death)of Jesus in a new way. Whether you are a Christian or a student of history I would recommend this book.

    "Ok book with good history"

    If you are a saved Christian like me you will not really get much from this cause you know your Bible. I like the beginning chapters because he goes into depth about the history of Herod and Caesar. Once he gets into Jesus life he is just re enacting the Bible but with more narrative. It's not as good as his other books that I enjoyed. For those that don't know or read the Bible I think it will be a great intro for them and help with your understanding of Jesus and may help you get into the Bible more.

    "It all depends..."

    Great book for historians and Christians looking for an accurate timeline and order of events in the Bible. But from a theology standpoint do not take this as an accurate representation of Jesus. Bill O'Reilly took liberties on this book that prevent it from being taken seriously in a theological sense. Bill reports that Jesus performed miracles and raised the dead, yet he left out Jesus' famous words on the cross, because he didn't believe Jesus could say them. How can you include the raising of the dead and leave out the words said on the cross? This is mind boggling. Although, Bill does state hr is a Roman Catholic, so that might point to the cause of the lunacy right there.

    Story
    "The greatest story ever told."

    I enjoyed this book and have enjoyed the other "Killing..." books by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard however I had one issue. Why was the Last Supper not mentioned? They mentioned the room, table and cushions to recline on and then focused only on Judas Iscariot being exposed as a traitor by Jesus. All believers practice the sacrament of Communion in one way or another but you chose to skip past it like it wasn't important. With that one exception I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know about Jesus.

    "Excellent"

    My only quibble is with some minor details. Granted that they make the book much more interesting but, without citations, one has to question their historical accuracy. Perhaps these citations are included in the printed edition.

    "Did not disappoint"

    The killing of Jesus is very informative straight to the point. It helps the reader understand the chronology of the crucifixion of Jesus. Unbiased information about the people that was involved. Being a firm believer of Jesus, I was relieved to find that it is very factual in every way. Thank you Bill O'Reilly, you have a grateful fan. The killing of Lincoln was written the same way and I was not disappointed in any way. The killing of Kennedy is next on my list.

    "This book is horrible."

    It would be better if it was FACTUAL and not based on opinion and conjecture


    Has Killing Jesus turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no

    he does not pronounce words correctly as they are written

    The Bible is the Word of God and is without error.

    "Amazing story"

    First me, this solidified a timeliness of what I learned in history class with what I learned in Sunday School.
