    Gospel Of Nicodemus Formerly Called The Acts Of Pontius Pilate

    Product Description

    The Gospel of Nicodemus, formerly called The Acts of Pontius Pilate, is a religious text of uncertain authorship that dates back to the early Christian era. The book is divided into two parts: the first part describes the trial and crucifixion of Jesus Christ, while the second part recounts his descent into hell and subsequent resurrection. The text is written in the form of a dialogue between Nicodemus, a Pharisee who was a secret follower of Jesus, and other characters including Pilate, Herod, and the Jewish high priests. The book expands on the events described in the canonical Gospels, providing additional details and insights into the characters and their motivations. In the first part of the book, Pilate is portrayed as reluctant to condemn Jesus but ultimately giving in to the demands of the Jewish leaders and the crowd. The second part of the book describes Jesus' descent into hell, where he is said to have freed the souls of the righteous who had died before his crucifixion. The Gospel of Nicodemus has been influential in Christian theology and art, particularly in depictions of the Harrowing of Hell, which became a popular subject in medieval and Renaissance art. Despite its uncertain authorship and non-canonical status, the book has been widely read and studied by scholars and religious thinkers.The Jews say to him, His blood be upon us and our children. Then Pilate calling together the elders and scribes, priests and Levites, saith to them privately, Do not act thus; I have found nothing in your charge (against him) concerning his curing sick persons, and breaking the Sabbath, worthy of death.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations. Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment for protecting, preserving, and promoting the world's literature in affordable, high quality, modern editions, that are true to their original work.
