Drawing on texts from all three Synoptic Gospels, this series of seven lessons traces the events of Jesus' final journey into Jerusalem and toward crucifixion. Through the study of parallel passages from Matthew, Mark, and Luke, readers will discover both common elements and disparate viewpoints in the passion narratives. Each study includes a listing of texts and themes, plus a preparation guide for class members and discussion suggestions for group leaders. These practical resources will be useful not only for pastors, but for anyone who plans educational opportunities for adults during Lent. Use them in combination with Bankhead's other Lenten titles for a complete interrelated program focusing on the journey to the cross.
