Books Info:

The Last Week free pdf Many Christians are unclear on the details of events during the week leading up to Jesus's crucifixion. Here, top Jesus scholars Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan offer what they believe is the real story of Jesus' final week in Jerusalem- together they reveal a radical and little-known Jesus.Using the gospel of "Mark" as their guide, Borg and Crossan present a day-by-day account of Jesus' final week of life. "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.
