Using a multi-level approach to Mark 15:34, and contra to the opinion of the majority of Markan scholarship, a contextual reading of Ps 22:2 does not serve to negate or dilute the presentation of Jesus as one in distress. Rather, such a reading enhances this aspect of his death by underscoring his identity as a Righteous Sufferer who experiences suffering but has the promise of vindication.
The evidence that supports a contextual reading of the citation in the Markan narrative includes: (a) the importance of Jesus' impending resurrection/vindication and its foreshadowing; (b) the relatively consistent contextual use of the scriptures in the narrative prior to Mark 15:34; (c) the patterns of the textual and liturgical use of the psalms and the presence of the motif of the Righteous Sufferer in Mark's socio-cultural milieu; (d) the presentation of Jesus as the Righteous Sufferer throughout the narrative; and (e) an exegesis of Mark 15:34 and the surrounding Markan passion-resurrection narrative with regard to the function of Ps 22 in the story of Jesus' death and resurrection.
A test case of this argument is undertaken at the close of the book, when both Matthew and Luke's treatment of Ps 22 and other Righteous Sufferer language is considered, regarding their readings of Ps 22 in Mark as the earliest tangible evidence of the interpretation of this passage in his gospel.

This carefully researched and provocative treatment of the two most influential persons in world history sets aside the cultural prejudices that often hamper open, honest comparison of Muhammad and Jesus. Phipps begins with a thorough biographical investigation of the early lives of the Meccan and the Nazarene and a thoughtful assessment of their later contributions as statesman and reformer. He then debunks many of the invidious myths about Jesus and Muhammad during the course of a careful exploration of the ways in which they interpreted Hebrew Scriptures, their prescriptions for moral conduct, and their attitudes toward rewards and punishment on earth and in the afterlife.

Did Jewish religious officials actually hang Jesus after he had been crucified? How did Paul, an accomplice in the murder of the disciple, Stephen, become the principal architect of Christianity? Was Jesus correct in forecasting judgment day? What was Jesus' mission here on earth, according to Jesus? In "The Hanging Death of Jesus Christ-And Other New Testament Occurrences," author and former trial lawyer Richard Sutherland addresses these questions and more.

Employing a lawyer's analytical tools, Sutherland initiates a common-sense discussion in order to engage those who have questions about Jesus and Christianity. "The Hanging Death of Jesus Christ" seeks to discover what can be learned about Jesus and the New Testament by asking questions that trial lawyers would pose about certain passages. Sutherland, who has studied the Bible for many years, offers proof found in the words of the New Testament.

"The Hanging Death of Jesus Christ" presents a thought-provoking discussion of many issues that could change the way Christians view Jesus Christ and the New Testament.
