Although the Bible gives us insights into what Jesus was thinking between the time he entered into Jerusalem and the night he spent in the Garden of Gethsemane, we can’t totally relate. But what if we look at the “ordinary” people who witnessed the Passion events…the women around Jesus and his disciples? Or the “bad” guys…Judas, Pilate, and Caiaphas? 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 Holy Week and includes a DVD, a comprehensive Leader Guide, and a Leader Kit.
The six-session DVD features Dr. Amy-Jill Levine offering a fresh, timely reinterpretation of the Passion of Jesus. The video segments are approximately 10–12 minutes each and, when combined with the six book chapters, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned.
The six sessions include:
- Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem
- The Temple Incident
- The Anointing of Jesus and the Role of Women
- Jesus’ Teachings in the Temple
- The Last Supper Traditions
