The Trial of Jesus

Max Radin

SKU 14-590 Categories , Tag


Probably no trial in history has been the subject of as many books – not to mention films – as that of Jesus of Nazareth. In this 1931 account, Professor Max Radin writes only as a lawyer by analyzing the Gospel accounts to provide context and background based on contemporary Roman and Judean law and legal procedure. He was a scholar, and that fact is displayed in his very lucid prose and in his occasional and apt references to classical and theological learning.

Radin, described as “a remarkable legal theorist,” taught international, Roman, and comparative law at Boalt Hall, the University of California at Berkely, for thirty years. His book on trial of Jesus was well received but not uncontroversial when it first appeared, and it has retained its stature over time.
