AUTHOR

Borg, Marcus J., Crossan, John Dominic

SUMMARY

Bestselling authors and Jesus experts John Dominic Crossan and Marcus Borg come together to explore the last seven days of Jesus's life. Using the best of biblical and historical scholarship, they rediscover a new way of understanding the Passion Week and its monumental events. True to form, they turn the traditional understaning of Passion Week on its head to reveal its true significance in history and for faith. Jesus's kingdom message was revolutionary in that it questioned people's basic loyalties at a time when those loyalties were jealously guarded by the Roman Empire. Jesus knowingly entered his last week knowing he'd be directly challenging the Romans. For example, the first day of the last week of Jesus's life (Palm Sunday), there were two triumphal entrance parades that occurred. One was a peasant rabbi with a revolutionary message, the second an imperial Roman army escorting the Roman governor to Jerusalem to oversee the holiday festivities. This initiated a week of growing tension in which people were asked to chose which way they would follow - the current Roman empire, or Jesus's revolutionary way of love, forgiveness, and grace. These brilliant authors reveal the moving story of someone who dared to face imperial wrath to bring a new way of life.Borg, Marcus J. is the author of 'Last Week What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus's Final Days in Jerusalem', published 2007 under ISBN 9780060872601 and ISBN 0060872608.
