Reviews - What do customers think about Caiaphas: Friend of Rome and Judge of Jesus??
Ken's review Sep 25, 2007
For the most part in enjoyed the book. The book goes into some good detail about the relationship between Caiaphas and Pilot as well as the rest of the Roman Government in Judea during the time of Christ. However, she also writes as though she does not believe that the Bible is the word of God. But rather that the Gospels are the created words of the writers and not that of God and were written to "fit" their story. If you are looking for information on the Priest hood during the time of Christ, this is a good book. Just skip the last few chapters on her take on the Gospels.
