Trivia About The Gospel Accord Before devoting himself exclusively to writing novels inhe worked as a draftsman, a publisher’s reader, an editor, translator, and political commentator for Diario de Lisboa. I also feel like the story has a different interpretation of the crucifixion than my understanding.


I was always of the belief that it made sacrifices of animals and slaves obsolete, hence the commonly spoken descriptions “ultimate sacrifice” and “died for your sins. I’m wondering if the painting described in the first pages is a real one, any clues?

In all, Saramago’s work has some slight positive elements, but on the whole, I simply find it lacking and will never read it again. Still, it took me a very long time to finish it becau This is the story of the life of Jesus, but the first third or more focused on Joseph of Nazareth.

Not the typical story of Jesus and the holy family at least not the one I grew up with. But I don’t read for intellectual stimulation unless I’m in a literature class.

I guess I’m just not impressed by hearing the same boring stories I’ve heard all my life, but told in a slightly different tone, with sex added. To view it, click here.

Perhaps that makes me a lazy reader. Saramago is not my favorite author. I can’t really put my finger on why. You know, entertainment and intellectual stimulation can go hand in hand.

El evangelio según Jesucristo / The Gospel According to Jesus Christ

I’m done with Jesus stories. It needs a more narratively savvy approach! Interesting modern attempt to understand the duality resulting from being both human and divine at the same time, but never having read the novel by Kazantzakis I suspect that this one is not as original as might be at first suspected.

So, I really wanted to like this one.
