Description

Two of today's top historical Jesus experts explore the last seven days of Jesus' life, from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his march to the cross.

What was, and is, Passion Week really about? Using the best of biblical and historical scholarship, best-selling authors and leading Jesus scholars Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan shed new light on Jesus' final days in Jerusalem, revealing their true significance in history and for faith. Rather than collapse Holy Week into its last three days, as the Christian liturgy does, they use as their basis the gospel of Mark: a day-by-day, and eventually hour-by-hour, chronicle of Jesus' last week.

Jesus entered Jerusalem knowing he would directly challenge the Roman Empire. Each day, tensions mounted as people were asked to choose which way they would follow: the Empire of power, or Jesus' revolutionary way of love, forgiveness, and grace. Borg and Crossan portray Jesus as someone who dared to face imperial wrath to bring about a new way of life. Their goal is to retell a story everyone thinks they know too well, but most do not seem to know at all.
