The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of John

Donald Senior, CP

With this volume on John the Passion series concludes its study of the meaning of Jesus' death in each of the Gospels. But though 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. Finally, he explores the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative. With scholarly finesse and deep pastoral awareness, he makes John's vibrant message of the Passion speak to our life and times.Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies.

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark

Donald Senior, CP

Which came first: a coherent Passion story or the Gospel of Mark? Contemporary biblical scholarship is divided over this issue of how, exactly, the Passion story developed. Whatever the shape of the story prior to Mark, it must have been imprinted with Christian experience as well as historical memory. Mark, in turn, felt free to retell and reinterpret that story for his own time and place. 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.Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies.

The Passion: Four-Volume Set

Donald Senior, CP

When we speak of the Passion of Jesus we refer, of course, to the suffering and death that he endured. But "passion" has other connotations equally fitting to Christ's struggle on earth, namely, his unwavering commitment to his pastoral mission. Since each early Christian community and each generation were different, each evangelist told a unique story of the Passion. The purpose of this series is to invite today's Christians to experience in a new way the power of each Passion narrative. Each book in the series follows the same format. The opening section shows how the rest of the Gospel prepares for the Passion story. The second and longest section is a detailed analysis of the Passion narrative itself. The concluding section synthesizes the theological motifs that dominate the Passion narrative to suggest some implications for contemporary experience. An excellent series for both the Scripture student and, since the Word must be lived as well as understood, the pastoral minister.

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke

Donald Senior, CP

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. 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.Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies.

The Passion of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew

Donald Senior, CP

The Word of the cross is a living word, crying out for reinterpretation as life takes new shape and expression. Reinterpreting the Gospel was particularly compelling for Matthew's church because his Christians lived in a time of profound transition. The Passion of Jesus, then, was not simply a story of suffering out of the past but a point of identification for the Christians of Matthew's own time. For us twentieth-century Christians, who also know the peculiar suffering and hope of living in an age that is both dying and being born, the Passion of Jesus according to Matthew has special meaning.Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies.
