The Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in. .

With this volume on John The Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in each of the Gospels. Although last, it is certainly not less important or a repetition of the other Gospels. In fact, John's portrayal of the death is as distinctive and unique as the rest of this ?maverick? Gospel. Father Senior explores how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. He then gives a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself.

The Passion of Jesus was not only a story from the past but also, in the sufferings and .

The Passion of Jesus was not only a story from the past but also, in the sufferings and hopes of the Christians of Mark's time, a living reality of the present. The readers of this insightful work will find that the Passion of Jesus as told by Mark continues to hold meaning for the present. In the context of these three phases, amongst other aspects, Donald Senior presents an extensive elucidation of three recurring themes in the gospel of Mark; the meaning of authentic discipleship, which Donald exposes via the various ironies in the gospel in which Jesus' disciples, his inner circle of friends, constantly failed to grasp the true meaning of discipleship, which is to give.

The passion narratives have been a major focus of his scholarly career, beginning with his dissertation at the University of Louvain on the passion narrative according to Matthew, which is a significant contribution to scholarship on the death of Jesus.

Father Senior's exegesis yields a strong sense of what Luke intended to communicate to his readers and, to some degree, what may have been the circumstances that shaped his message. He reveals the Luke who presents Jesus as a champion of the poor and marginalized, whose message of justice is proclaimed with a sharp prophetic edge.

The third main prophecy of the Passion is from the Book of the Wisdom of Solomon.

The third main prophecy of the Passion is from the Book of the Wisdom of Solomon. Protestant Christians place it in the Apocrypha, Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox among the deuterocanonical books. But it was written about 150 BC, and many have understood these verses (12-20 of chapter 2) as a direct prophecy of Jesus’ Passion.

Luke wrote to the Greeks.

It is still considered one of the great masterpieces of Literature. My best piece of advise, for a timeline, is to read Luke! It’s poetically gorgeous. Luke wrote to the Greeks.

The first four books of the New Testament, the Gospels, show us the life and teachings of Jesus Christ while providing evidence that He is the Son of God and the Messiah. We watch Jesus launch his ministry of good news for the poor and how he brought together people from very diverse backgrounds to live together in peace. Explore Luke-Acts Miniseries. Luke Ch 3-9.

The recent resurgence of scholarship on Luke's Gospel is due, in part, to this Gospel's special appeal for an age in which questions of economic justice, peace, and the prophetic role of the Churches questions all important in Luke are so urgent.

Senior is the next best thing to the Bible itself. He writes a line by line commentary explaining all of it, but also explains the themes and the "back story" too. If you're looking for an authoritative book on the Passion of Jesus, Our Lord, this is it.
