Unnahbar erscheint dagegen Atalja, sowohl körperlich als auch geistig. The two questions that most stand out for me from this novel are:. There are three central characters.
While Ash is trying to escape what life has dealt him , to be away from it all , he finds a lonely life until he is attracted to Atalia Abravanel, widow of Wald's son , 20 years his senior. How has Judas been seen and how should he be seen? However, there are things that drew me into the book. On Judas It is thus natural that a similar argument should be visited upon Judas by some of Christians. I insist on separating the two; I think this is only fair to an author. Deep Purple closed the night.
Without the crucifixion, there would have been no rift in beliefs. All the power in the world cannot transform someone thirsting for vengeance into a lover. He also argues that there would have been no need to identify Jesus to the Romans given his very public entry into the city days before and the overturning of the moneylenders' stalls in the temple.

That is the set-up, the beginning, and then we learn about the three - Schmuel, the elderly man and the middle-aged woman. Not a book that called to me, definitely not a quick read, but immersive once picked back up, teaches much. Update - After an excellent book club discussion, I am raising my rating to 3. The city itself is invoked beautifully in the text, albeit at a detailed street-by-street level that would be more meaningful to someone who knows the modern city. In what is a mini-spoiler, my rating for this book is lower than it could have been because I was disappointed with the fact that Shmuel and Atalia got together briefly: I would have preferred it if Atalia remained unreachable and apart. A cynical city boy, Judas makes fun of the country bumpkin disciples who follow Jesus but eventually decides to join the band, as well.

Atalia is the daughter of the late Shealtiel Abranavel. They will constantly prey upon his musings once they have entered into the conversation. Your predecessors in the attic also began to tell me their dreams. In order to support himself he gets hired by a mature woman, Atalja, to offer company for a few hours per day to an old crippled man in exchange for home, food and a small salary.
