Item description for Iscariot: A Novel of Judas by Tosca Moon Lee...

Overview
Acclaimed "New York Times"-bestselling author Lee brilliantly adapts the life of Judas Iscariot into a dazzling work of fiction--humanizing the man whose very name is synonymous with betrayal.

Publishers Description
The most reviled man in biblical history comes to life.
In Jesus, Judas believes he has found the One--the promised Messiah and future king destined to overthrow Roman rule. Galvanized, Judas joins the disciples, ready to enact the change he has waited for all his life.
But Judas' vision of a nation free from Roman rule is crushed by the inexplicable actions of the Nazarene himself, who will not bow to social or religious convention--who seems in the end to turn against his own people. At last, Judas must confront the fact that the master he loves is not the liberator he hoped for, but a man bent on a drastically different agenda.
"Iscariot" is the story of Judas--from his tumultuous childhood and tenuous family life as a devout Jew to a man known to the world as the betrayer of Jesus Christ. But even more, it is a singular and surprising view into the life of Jesus himself, an intricate account that will cause you to ask: "Would I have done the same thing as Judas?"

FANTASTIC WRITING  Feb 3, 2014
Is it possible to give a 10 star rating on a 5 star scale? If not, it should be, because Iscariot deserved it! What a fantastic read! I loved the way Tosca Lee presents Judas without ever glorifying him and yet she totally glorified Jesus. The story caused me to fall more in love with Jesus just by her representation of his amazing love and devotion. Ms. Lee is an amazing author already, but Iscariot took her writing to a new dimension of outstanding. This book will knock the socks off any reader.
 
Iscariot Viewed in a New Light  Jan 29, 2014
Tosca Lee drops you on the streets of Capernaum, Jerusalem. You will see the sights, hear the sounds and live life through the mind and heart of Judas Iscariot. You’ll feel his pain, and despair as Roman armies rule in the land.

Your heart will ache as you read about his turbulent childhood and grieve with him about the horrific experiences as a grown man.

He was a devout Jew who was a keeper of the law and wanted to be a teacher of it. Tragedy strikes and he knows in his heart of hearts he will fail to live up to the standard set by the “law” he loved so much.

Judas was tormented by the law; this author did a brilliant job of showing the struggle everyone had following the “law”. I could see clearly how Jesus came to set us free of our bondage to the law! Hallelujah!

I’m thrilled to have received a review copy of this enlightening, gritty novel, rich in historical detail that helped bring the people and time period to life. This author soaked herself in over a hundred books, lectures, documentaries, commentaries, sermons, and collected articles even went to Israel to see firsthand where Jesus walked.

Tosca Lee wrote this novel through Judas eyes. This enabled me catch a glimpse of what Jesus ministry looked like through his disciple’s understanding. It also gave me a peek of the crowd Jesus spoke to filled with stalkers, followers and plotters. The stakes were high for the twelve but they felt it was worth the price to follow him.


This author takes her time in laying the ground work and having the reader experience Judas’ development of how he lived and thought. It was realistic and tragic. Judas agonized over Jesus’ situation as the crowds grew bigger, he became more popular and the awareness of the Pharisee and Sadducees’ plot to push Jesus into an offence they could kill him for. Judas felt Jesus didn’t see this happening as he spoke. Tosca captured the political unrest and what was happening around Jesus as he spoke.

Could Judas have been trying to protect Jesus? He felt he knew the law better than Jesus did? Could the religious leaders lead Judas down a path they knew he would take in order to protect his master, Jesus?

Tosca Lee has readers experience Jesus’ ministry through Judas eyes as one of the 12 chosen disciples. Judas felt peace around Jesus and grew to love him like the others. I like how she showed the disciples didn’t get Jesus and they were standing right next to him. He spoke in riddles they said.

Here’s a peek into Tosca’s novel. Jesus tells the man at the Siloam pool, take up your mat and walk. Judas thinks, “That day I understood, if I had not fully before, that Jesus was more than a mystery, more than unconventional, more than a faction able to unite some and divide others.

He was dangerous – to himself and to all of us who followed him…He was the gatherer of multitudes, this Jesus. A man of questioned birth, who claimed the Lord himself, was his father…and then he healed on the Sabbath in violation of God’s law. Man of contradictions! Didn’t he know that there were those who might seek his ruin for this?...He spoke in riddles. He was a riddle himself.”

Judas went on to say, “Our numbers grew. I was nervous because I knew Herod’s spies were everywhere. The Pharisees already conspired against us; soon Herod would come for my master as surely as he had for John the Baptist. We were running out of time…I was also elated because that meant soon the day would come. Jesus would have to proclaim himself- by Passover, I was certain.”

This is a book to be experienced. It will help you slip into the time period and feel Judas and the twelve disciples struggle. This is a haunting tale that helped me prepare my heart and mind for this years’ Easter Celebration. I’ve seen this story with fresh eyes as I went back to scripture and re-read these events, you will too.

Iscariot by Tosca Lee  Jul 29, 2013
Picture yourself in a chair watching a movie, any movie. As the movie begins the usual warnings are posted sometimes followed by previews and then the main feature begins. You hear music, see the company’s logo and then the long awaited feature begins. Sitting there with snacks and a drink, you watch the story unfold. If the movie is one you have already seen before, perhaps you watch it to just relax and enjoy it again. What if it is new though? You have never seen the movie; the expectation for a great experience heightens as once again a tale is told.
When I began this novel, what I previously described in some ways is what I felt. Although there was no music or company logo, the anticipation to read about someone most people know a lot about didn’t diminish the hope that this would be a compelling novel. There I was caught up in a story told in first person by Judas himself. Remember, this is a strictly a fiction novel even though there was a real man named Judas who betrayed Jesus. What Tosca Lee does in this tale is to imagine what life, thoughts, hopes, dreams, hurts, and more Judas may have felt. The Bible is silent on this man in any depth. Tosca Lee dares to take him from obscurity and expertly weaves a compelling masterpiece told from his perspective.
You will see through the character’s eyes the time and life of Jesus. Throughout the novel we are reminded of the many teachings Judas heard, the miracles he witnessed, and the part where he betrayed a friend with a kiss. Not only that, but he took the money offered by some religious leaders to betray Jesus. Coincidentally, 30 pieces of silver was the cost to buy a slave. What could possibly compel someone to betray and sell someone else, then go and take his own life? There are many views and books written about Judas and his actions, but Tosca tells us a story of a man from his point of view. She brings him out and away from controversy of scholars to paint a tale of a man we really don’t know much about.
Iscariot is a page turner and reminds us of the humanity of this man. The novel causes us to think of how people lived at that time in history, what they saw and what they thought. In some places Jesus speaks, reminding us of Judas’ presence when some of the events take place. Judas was not just an observer; he participated. He was known to the other disciples too. To read this book is to take a trip back in time and perhaps be reminded that we too can betray another. I would read for hours before I would look at a clock and remember it is the year 2013. Written words can carry our imaginations to far away places, and Tosca Lee did a magnificent job of doing that here. Now, are you ready to take the adventure in history back to Bible times? Be bold and take the trip; it is worth it!
