Orthodox Christians hear the gospel readings of the Passion during Holy Week every year. We may think we know what happened, but what appears rather simple and straightforward is actually very layered and complex.

In her new book, The Crucifixion of the King of Glory: The Amazing History and Sublime Mystery of the Passion,  Dr. Constantinou gives background information and insights into the Passion of Christ that few Christians have ever heard about. The book weaves together threads from many different  facets of life in first century Palestine to reveal the complex activities, relationships  and attitudes that shaped events which culminated in the crucifixion of the Lord.  Watch more of this series on myOCN Community Events recorded programs.
