Examine the last seven words of Christ on the cross this Lent.
The most difficult part of Lent is, of course, contemplating our Savior on the cross: the physical pain, the humiliation, and the undeniable injustice. Our hearts break. It’s natural to try and avoid the reality of how Jesus died, but it is from the cross that Jesus shows his deepest love for us. As Jesus draws his final breath and utters his last words, it is then that his deep trust in the Father and his divine glory are revealed. In Seven Words, Susan Robb looks at Christ’s final words from a biblical and historical perspective, showing how we can find life and hope in them. Additional components for this six-week Lenten study include a DVD and a comprehensive Leader Guide.
