Two major literary personalities coming out of the controversial 'Jesus Seminar', Borg and Crossan offer another shot across the bow of orthodox belief. This time, instead of harmonizing the Gospel accounts of the week before the Resurrection, the authors deconstruct and contrast them. The book uses the Gospel of Mark as the basis for examining this series of events, bringing in relevant passages from Matthew, Luke and John when they feel necessary, even dipping into spurious sources such as the Gospel of Peter. The authors argue for the subtext of the Resurrection, not the context, concentrating more on its meaning than the reality or veracity of it and thereby slyly weaving doubt into the mind of the reader.
