Crime Scene Golgotha approaches Jesus's crucifiction from the perspecitive of a crime scene investigator: What do we know is fact? What can be historically documented? What can we deduce may have happened? 
 
Taking the popular CSI television dramas as inspiration, Crime Scene Golgotha is a direct reaction to Mel Gibson's much talked about movie The Passion of the Christ.  Ian Wilson systematically outlines what is known for sure about Jesus’s trial and crucifixion, as well as where art and the movies have gone astray. His investigatory methods include eyewitness testimony (that of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John), archeology, medical and forensic findings, and history, which systematically describe the most famous murder in history.

MURDER AT GOLGOTHA
1A Crime Scene Gone Cold? 
 
NEARLY TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO Jesus Christ was murdered in full public view, during daylight hours, in what was most likely the year A.D. 30. The crime scene was a hill called Golgotha, the "Place of the Skull," just outside the city of Jerusalem in the then Roman-occupied province of Judaea.In ways that no one could have anticipated at the time, the murder would turn out to be the most famous in all history. In the course of subsequent centuries it changed the lives of millions of people on every continent of the world.
