No narrative is more beautiful than the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Now you can gain a deeper understanding of these powerful events with Fr. Henry Wansbrough, one of the world's leading biblical scholars.
Although the story of Jesus' Passion, Death, and Resurrection forms the core of Christian belief, the full depth of its meaning is often not immediately understandable to 21st-century readers. Occurring some 2,000 years ago, these events were narrated with the language and symbols of contemporaries in a civilization and culture considerably different from ours. In He Lives: The Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus, you will delve into the world of the biblical authors in order to understand the religious message of these events. As you do so, you will gain a deeper understanding of not only the historical context but also the profound theology expressed in these accounts. You will journey through the Gospel accounts of the Last Supper, the Agony in the Garden, Jesus' interrogation, and his ultimate condemnation by Pontius Pilate, gaining deep insights into the theological and salvific nature of these events. After looking at the powerful themes of forgiveness in the cross, you will consider what the Resurrection means for the mission of the church and your own spirituality. Finally, you will explore the glorification and transcendence of the risen Christ.
Embark on this journey of forgiveness, hope, and glory today.
