Walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary. Every step of the way, biblical experts reveal how Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ’s suffering and death.
In this study, Catholics discover
• The Biblical background to each scene in Christ’s passion.
• What was Jesus going through at each moment?
• How did the Old Testament foretell of Christ’s death?
• Why did Christ die for us? What did it accomplish?
• What was the meaning behind of the tearing of the temple veil, the crowing with thorns, and other events during Christ’s Passion?
Edward Sri also unpacks commonly misunderstood sayings of Jesus such as…
• “Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass?” – Was Jesus thinking of backing out at the last minute?
• “My God, my God why have you abandoned me?” – Was Jesus really abandoned by the Father on the cross?
• “you have said so.” – What does that mean?
