This will be a gift I give in order to bring a little more light and love into the lives of those I care for.
¶László Bitó stands up against this scourge by presenting a fascinatingly brilliant reinterpretation of that fateful Passover almost 2000 years ago.
In his thoughtful and far-reaching retelling of the story, Bitó presents Barabbas as a childhood friend of Jesus who was ready to offer himself to free his friend from Pilate's dungeon. This Jesus, in Bito's ingenious apocryphal gospel, saved hundreds of lives after Judas reported to him that in the absence of Barabbas, the leader of the zealots, the ferocious sicarii were planning to lead the zealots into an armed insurrection against Roman rule.
