On March 29, AD 33, Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem and boldly predicted that he would soon be put to death—executed on a cross, like a common criminal. So began the most important week of the most important person who ever lived.
Nearly 2,000 years later, the events that took place during Jesus’s last days still reverberate through the ages. Designed as a day-by-day guide to Passion Week, The Final Days of Jesus leads us to reexamine and meditate on the history-making, earth-shaking significance of Jesus’s arrest, trial, crucifixion, and empty tomb.
Combining a chronological arrangement of the Gospel accounts with insightful commentary, charts, and maps, this book will help you better understand what actually happened all those years ago—and why it matters today.
"If you want to expose your family to the truths of Easter in a way they can understand and relate to," says Pastor Dan Larison, "[I recommend reading] The Final Days of Jesus as a daily devotional for the week leading up to Easter Sunday which can renew your understanding of the historical narrative and instill a sense of awe in what God has done."
The Final Days of Jesus is available at Books by the Park or through your favorite online bookseller.
