Students will be responsible to read Pontius Pilate by Paul L. Maier in its entirety and write a double-spaced, 2 page, 12 point, Times New Roman, reflection on their reading. Students should also indicate on their essay that they read all of Pontius Plate in its entirety. The essay should address two things: 1) What specific things from the book helped enlighten your understanding of the world of the New Testament (make sure you give specific examples, not just broad statements); 2) How has this book influenced your view of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus (again, make sure that you give specific examples, not just broad statements). No outside sources should be used for this assignment. If students choose to quote the book, they cite the page number at the end of the quote in parenthesis.
