Entering the Passion of Jesus
If we look closely at the people who were part of Jesus’ life during the last days before the crucifixion—their relationships and roles in the story—how might that deepen our understanding of what happened? In Entering the Passion of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine explores the biblical texts surrounding the Passion story to help us fill in the blanks. The six-week study is perfect for Lent and includes a DVD, a comprehensive Leader Guide, and a Leader Kit.
