“The Cross Trap” (published by iUniverse) builds a case for the formidable and near-infallible plot to make Jesus unworthy in the eyes of God through careful examination of often overlooked circumstances, exposing a well-conceived conspiracy to send Jesus back to face his maker as a shameful sinner. While the scriptures remain the spurious cornerstone to the religious leaders’ opposition to Jesus as an authoritative teacher, their most grave omission was a total misunderstanding or disbelief of Jesus’ primary role as the savior. Yet Satan’s cause de force was maligning Jesus as the perfect sacrificial Lamb of God for the remission of sin and destroying his sanctity as a symbolic sacrifice. Haygood takes on a multitude of questions concerning the ministry of Christ as well as his crucifixion. For example, “Why would the religious leaders allow Jesus to teach daily in the synagogue if they considered him a false teacher, blasphemer, and sorcerer?” or “Why was Jesus’ cry of desperation ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” – a seemingly blatant contradiction to his acceptance of God’s will? In addition, “why were two thieves chosen to die with Jesus?” A saga that goes down to the wire, Haygood writes with clarity and sensitivity as he separates myth from magic, fact from fiction, and faith from fantasy.
