9780060872601: The Last Week: What the Gospels Really Teach about Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem (Plus)

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.

Review:

"'If there is to be one book for the redemption of Holy Week, this is it. This is a "must read" for clergy and laity.' - Peter J. Gomes, Harvard University"

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Top Jesus scholars Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan join together to reveal a radical and little-known Jesus. As both authors reacted to and responded to questions about Mel Gibson s blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, they discovered that many Christians are unclear on the details of events during the week leading up to Jesus s crucifixion.Using the gospel of Mark as their guide, Borg and Crossan present a day-by-day account of Jesus s final week of life. They begin their story on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem. The first entry, that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city, symbolized military strength. The second heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey. The Jesus introduced by Borg and Crossan is this new moral hero, a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church s traditional teachings. The Last Week depicts Jesus giving up his life to protest power without justice and to condemn the rich who lack concern for the poor. In this vein, at the end of the week Jesus marches up Calvary, offering himself as a model for others to do the same when they are confronted by similar issues. Informed, challenged, and inspired, we not only meet the historical Jesus, but meet a new Jesus who engages us and invites us to follow him. Bookseller Inventory # ABZ9780060872601
