Jesus of Nazareth has been preaching in Judea for three years and has gathered many followers with his teachings and miracles. But he has also made enemies who fear his power and his influence and who have conspired to put an end to him by whatever means possible.
The family of David ben Joseph continues to follow Jesus, though the Savior's teachings now carry an undercurrent of sorrow and unsettling prophecy. And despite increasing danger, Jesus' ministry draws him inexorably toward Jerusalem. As the end of Jesus' ministry - and his life - approaches, the lines are swiftly and solidly drawn between those who will stand for Jesus and those who will tear him down.
The final volume of The Kingdom and the Crown series, Behold the Man details the last week of Jesus' life - his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the spiritually fulfilling Last Supper, and the crowning achievement of the Atonement that begins in the Garden of Gethsemane and culminates in the Garden Tomb.

Audible has Vol. 3 of the this Kingdom and the Crown listed on their website. Everyone I know who has read this series absolutely loves it! I really don't have time to sit down and read a book so I looked it up on Audible and they only had Vol. 3 Available. So I bought the first two books and took the time to read them. They were amazing! I loved them. My family was stealing them from me trying to get a turn to read. I was excited to be able to at least listen to the 3rd book when I got to it. Finally this morning I purchased BEHOLD THE MAN Vol. 3 and it was actually Vol. 1, the FISHERS OF MEN. I have asked Audible if they will make the whole series available. It is so exciting and so inspiring.
"An amazing read."
The book was well written, well researched, with notes at the end of each chapter. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about this time period and The Lord Jesus Christ. it is especially interesting for Christian readers.
"I want more"
My husband and I love these books. Need more on audible. Author research and perspective is mind broadening.
"Uplifting and informative"
Really enjoyed learning more about life during the time of Christ. The authors notes at the end of each chapter were very informative and helpful.
I absolutely loved this series!! audible should add the others to their library and soon.
"Like being there"
I completely enjoyed the experience of listening to this book. Anyone wanting to know what it may have been like to be with Jesus during the last remaining days of his mortal life and to witness his resurrection, would count the time well spent.
I loved each book and the scriptural references. I have come to understand the bible and the time of Christ with more understanding and love for my savior and those that preached his word.
This made Jesus more real to me. Love the whole series. Very compelling story with history and testimony.
Really employed this third and final book. It stays true to the scriptures and adds a lot of valuable insights. Definitely worth the time to listen. However start with volume 1 and then 2 before this one.
I read the complete series every two to three years and pretend I am there...
