Most of what we know of the life of Jesus comes to us from four Gospels in the New Testament, specifically, the Synoptic Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and Luke. These books present a more human, historical view of Jesus. The Gospel of John, much different, provides the view of a divine Jesus.

In this study I looked at Jesus' behavior through the Synoptic Gospels, and analyzed Jesus' behavior against the field of criminology. My hope is that we derive more of Jesus' motivation and social situation than what one typically accepts. This is but one view, under a small ...

The industry didn't want this published and they're afraid of this because I raised questions. This would be the expanded and revised edition as it has a new ISBN -- I like the publish now, ISBN later. I got an in-house ISBN for this. Being the third book I wrote and published; designed it all. My publishers in '06 got bullied throughout 2007. The anthology publishers who published me got punished too as I saw death threats for publishing Issue 10 of my magazine (Issue Five and Ten are back.) Warning: *Contains raw language and instant mindscrew factor.* The House of Pain Second in Command. The book stemmed the anthology Nickolaus Albert Pacione Delivers: A Library Of Unknown Horror ...

The history of the Carthage Police Department is not unlike that of agencies in many towns. Early Carthage policemen were not well paid, worked seven days a week and were subject to local political whims. There was no academy training - they depended on their wits and their brawn.

Over time, conditions improved, with better pay and training, less political interference, improvements in equipment and technology, and a higher level of professionalism. The sense of dedication felt by our early policemen is still prevalent in our officers today. Thi ...
