Killing Jesus – The True Story of the Crucifixion of Jesus

Stephen Mansfield, the author of #1 NY Times bestselling book, The Faith of George W. Bush, and Dave Garrison, host of The Faith & Liberty Talk Show, discuss Dr. Mansfield’s latest book, Killing Jesus. Dr. Mansfield explains the events leading up to and including the crucifixion of Jesus. Dave and Dr. Mansfield also discuss how Jesus was at war with a religious and political system that was in direct opposition to the Bible. Additionally, Dave and Stephen discuss the how the Roman government and the religious governments of that day and analogies to present government.


“If Jesus is our example, we will be both loving and tender and caring more than we are and we will be fiery and passionate for truth and righteousness than we are.”

“This is a man who is at war with a religious system that is contrary to the will of God.”

“We are not willing to confront the false systems, the anti-Christ systems…the corrupt systems of our age… If there is corruption on Wall Street we should speak to it. If there is corruption in our government, we should speak to it.”

“…there can be great power in the hands of those who are good. But, yes, as a rule in human history, the more powerful and intrusive a government and more control a government tends to have over a people, the more evil it becomes. That is true today and that was true then [during the time of Christ.]”

“…whenever you have a government that is going astray that’s intrusive in the lives of the people that’s encouraging evil even encouraging bloodshed that you have a parallel to the Roman Empire.”

“I love my country, but yes there are Roman Empire elements of the current American government…; we see abortion being encouraged; we see many things the scripture describe as immoral being encouraged; we see domination and control, oppressive taxation—all that kind of thing.  Anytime any government anywhere in the world veers in that direction… its most notable parallel is the Roman Empire.”
