What was the last week of Jesus's life about? And what does it mean for us now? Two of today's leading experts on Jesus, Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan, offer what they believe is the real story of Jesus's final week in Jerusalem. Using the Gospel of Mark as their guide, they present a day-by-day account of Holy Week - the most sacred time of the Christian year. The Last Week reveals a radical and little-known Jesus who gave up his life to protest against power without justice and to condemn the oppression of the poor by the rich. Indeed, the Jesus uncovered here is far more dangerous than the one enshrined in the church's traditional teachings. In The Last Week we do not simply meet the Jesus of history but a passionate and engaging Jesus who invites us to follow him today.
