In Entering the Passion of Jesus: A Beginner's Guide to Holy Week, biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine delves into the history and literature surrounding the last days of Jesus' life. She sets the narrative in historical context and analyzes the risks and motives of the story's characters.
The Entering the Passion of Jesus DVDvideo segments are approximately 10-12 minutes each and, when combined with the six chapters in the book, make an ideal six-week group study. All videos sessions are closed captioned. A Leader Guide is also available.
