The Final Days of Jesus


Rating: 5 Stars


I finished this within just a couple hours. It's 'easy' in that it breaks down one of the most important and overwhelming sections of the Bible. It's difficult, of course, in its content.

What makes it so accessible is that it presents the Gospel (that is, the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, one gospel, not four) together, piece by piece. It breaks down Holy Week day by day, first recording what each account says, then providing commentary of what these writings mean, or what can be made of the events.

This is an important text I'm seriously considering purchasing, as something not only to be read specifically during Easter, but as a study throughout the year. It's well-written, with additional readings listed at the end, broken down from easy to advanced. While I certainly would never recommend it as a replacement to Scripture, it certainly can be a valuable supplement. Highly recommended.
