The passion and resurrection is the core of the Scriptures; it is also the heart of faith, liturgy, and prayer. This commentary will enrich the faith, worship, and prayer of all who look to the crucified and risen Jesus as the source of life.
All the writings of the New Testament demonstrate that the passion, death, and resurrection was the culmination of Jesus' mission and brought all the words and deeds of his life to a climax. The Passion and Resurrection Narratives of Jesus shows the differences in the four accounts and the reasons behind those differences. Text segments are followed by appropriate commentary.
