“We forget at our peril that Jesus was a political figure as well as a religious teacher and the real power behind the Roman emperor at the time was Sejanus. Sejanus was very much interested in Middle Eastern politics and he had his spies and representatives there. Jesus got caught up in the power politics of his time and his ‘Kingdom of God coming soon’ message threatened the Roman establishment. Seepe’s intriguing book takes us into the realpolitik of the time and so places Jesus’ message and mission in its Roman context. It’s an important contribution to uncovering the Jesus of history.”
