Walk With Jesus During His Last Week on Earth

On March 29, AD 33, Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem and boldly predicted that he would soon be put to death—executed on a cross, like a common criminal. So began the most important week of the most important person who ever lived.

Nearly 2,000 years later, the events that took place during Jesus’s last days still reverberate through the ages. Designed as a day-by-day guide to Passion Week, The Final Days of Jesus leads us to reexamine and meditate on the history-making, earth-shaking significance of Jesus’s arrest, trial, crucifixion, and empty tomb.

Combining a chronological arrangement of the Gospel accounts with insightful commentary, charts, and maps, this book will help you better understand what actually happened all those years ago—and why it matters today.

5.0 von 5 Sternen New Testament Scholar Thomas Schreiner Reviews 'The Final Days of Jesus' 3. Februar 2014
Von Thomas Schreiner - Veröffentlicht auf
Andreas Köstenberger, an outstanding biblical scholar from Southeastern Seminary; Justin Taylor, the well-known blogger and publisher at Crossway Books; and Alexander Stewart, a research assistant for Köstenberger; have teamed up to write a book on the last days of Jesus--that is, the final week of his life. The authors primarily march through the week day by day, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, though they also include a brief epilogue that includes other resurrection appearances, the Great Commission, and Christ's ascension.

The format of the book is easy to follow, and the commentary is brief and consistently excellent. For each day in the final week of Jesus' life, the events are listed, the scriptural passage (or passages) pertaining to the event is printed, and a commentary on the passage is provided. The Final Days of Jesus should prove to be helpful for pastors, teachers, and interested laypersons who preach and teach about the events in our Lord's last week. Moreover, those who desire to meditate on Jesus' last week will find this to be an excellent resource as well.

One of the main advantages of Köstenberger and Taylor's book is its brevity. Here is a resource that pastors and teachers will be able to read in advance of teaching, for the commentary is concise and accessible. I especially found helpful the numerous tables that illustrated events or other truths. Sometimes busy pastors and teachers don't have the time to plunge into technical details about Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, and yet they need to be informed by responsible scholarship about what occurred. This book serves that need.

Though Köstenberger and Taylor maintain that Jesus died in AD 33, the content of the book doesn't depend on agreeing with such a date, and they don't devote much space to the matter. Some technical matters regarding authorship of the Gospels, their historical accuracy, and harmonization are examined in the introduction. Even here the discussion isn't technical and may be one many readers wish to skip. Still, it is plain from the introduction that the authors are conservative evangelicals. They believe the Gospels were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John respectively. They also defend the notion of harmonization, which is out of fashion in many circles. Still, Köstenberger and Taylor don't claim "inerrancy" for their proposed harmonizations. The Gospel accounts can be harmonized historically, but the harmonization proposed (or harmonizations proposed) is one way of accounting for the evidence. The principle here is illustrated well with the story of Mary coming to the tomb on Easter morning. The when and where and what of her actions that morning are difficult to reconstruct in their entirety. The authors humbly propose two or three possibilities, recognizing the difficulty of being certain about what happened. Köstenberger and Taylor rightly believe in the historical accuracy of the Gospels and in the notion they can be harmonized, but they also realize their harmonizations are tentative.

The Final Days of Jesus is particularly helpful historically in providing understanding of national feasts like Passover and the Unleavened Bread. The elements of the Passover meal are sketched in, we're reminded the Passover had to be eaten in Jerusalem, and we're told it would be unusual for a man to carry a water jug since that was usually a woman's responsiblity. The seating custom and arrangement for the Passover meal Jesus celebrated with his disciples is also helpfully relayed.

The theological significance of Jesus' final days is also briefly related. His last Passover meal wasn't merely the observance of a Jewish ritual, for Christ instituted the Lord's Supper at this meal, with the bread and wine symbolizing his death for the forgiveness of sins. Similarly, the footwashing of the disciples represents their cleansing from sin, their need for continual forgiveness, and constitutes an example of humble service. Or, when Jesus says he's the true vine in John 15, he identifies himself as the true Israel. I could multiply examples to demontrate that Köstenberger and Taylor often unpack the theological significance of what occurred.

The clear and brief commentary in The Final Days of Jesus is one of its greatest strengths, but naturally we as readers may want more explanations at some points. For instance, it would be interesting to hear more discussion historically and theologically about why Jesus was charged with blasphemy at his trial. Köstenberger and Taylor also note the irony present in Jesus' trial and death, but a few more comments along this line would have been instructive. Yes, the soldiers were mocking Jesus in calling him the Christ, but they were also speaking better than they knew, for the Christ was revealed especially in his suffering. Along the same lines, the freeing of Barabbas makes a literary and theological point: the guilty one is set free (Barabbas) since the innocent one suffers in his place (Jesus). This isn't to say Barabbas became a believer, but the Gospel writers want us to read this story at more than one level.

We can be grateful for this historically anchored and reverent work, one which also sets forth for us the theological significance of what Jesus accomplished in his final days.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Faithful Guide for Jesus' Final Days 1. Februar 2014
Von mp - Veröffentlicht auf
It’s Palm Sunday. You remember people laid down palm branches for Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem. But where was that story again? You know Good Friday is a just a few days away and then Easter Sunday, but what changed between the celebration of Palm Sunday and the horror of the crucifixion? Wouldn’t you like to follow Jesus step by step through those last days and hours of his last week? If only you had a guide to lead you through all that the Gospels record about those last days…

Enter "The Final Days of Jesus." I’m not aware of any other book that does quite what this book does. Beginning with Palm Sunday the authors devote a chapter to each day of the last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The chapters for Palm Sunday through Tuesday tell us the events that happened on those days and where we can find them in the Bible. Then beginning with Wednesday and continuing through Easter Sunday they provide the very words of Scripture from all four of the Gospels (one event at a time) as we follow Jesus toward the cross and on to the empty tomb. All of these chapters include simple yet powerful explanations of each event as it happens.

The point of the book is not to provide a dramatic retelling of the final days of Jesus. The Scripture account is dramatic enough. Instead it aims to let the Bible speak while adding powerful commentary to help the reader understand what he’s read. Wondering why Passover was such a volatile time in Israel? The authors will tell you. Do you wonder how some seeming contradiction in the Gospel accounts can be explained? You’ll likely find a reasonable answer or two provided. Having trouble keeping all the different Mary’s straight or remembering who Herod Antipas was? The glossary in the back will give you just enough information to sort it out, but not so much that you’re overwhelmed.

Don’t let another Easter come and go without giving due attention to what the subtitle rightly calls "The Most Important Week of the Most Important Person Who Ever Lived." This book will help you do that better than any other book I know.

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of providing a review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Devotional Approach to Passion Week 17. Februar 2014
Von Chris Land - Veröffentlicht auf
As Easter approaches, many churches are gearing up for outreach activities and sermon series that point people to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Some Christians will even pick up a book on the Resurrection just to prepare themselves for the celebration of Easter. Some small groups will even talk about the Crucifixion as a means to remember what Easter is all about.

Some churches will not even mention the last days of Jesus before the cross until Easter Sunday because they are more focused on being hip and cool. There are many theological books on the death of Jesus and some focus on his final week before dying in our place for our sins. There are not many that take a chronological approach from scripture to the last days to his death. Andrea J. Kostenberger and Justin Taylor have come together to produce a book that does exactly that called, The Final Days of Jesus. This book takes a more devotional approach to Passion week as they used the Scriptures to teach their readers the sequence of events in Jesus' life leading up the Crucifixion.

This book contains a lot of scripture and I am not referring just to the reference for the reader to pick up the Bible to read. What I mean is Kostenberger and Taylor provide the scriptures for the reader to read in the book, which is perfect for a small group setting or for a believer reading it with a non-believer that has questions about Christianity. After reading the scriptures, there is a commentary that followers each passage which is easy to read for anyone to follow.

I was expecting a deep theological book on the final days of Jesus, but what I got was a devotional style of a book that is excellent for any Christian to read and even teach to fellow believers as well as non-believers. This is perfect book for those who love reading about the Crucifixion before Easter. - See more at: [...]

5.0 von 5 Sternen If You Want to Know Jesus Better, Read This Book 15. März 2014
Von mattperman - Veröffentlicht auf
Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 3:18 that by beholding the glory of the Lord, we are transformed into his likeness. This book is one amazing way to do that.

At the heart of Christ’s glory is his love for God and for us. Nothing demonstrates that more fully than his death and resurrection for our salvation (John 15:13; Romans 5:8). This book helps us see and understand Christ’s love more fully by taking us point by point through Christ’s final week, leading up to his crucifixion.

I found that this book makes the events of that final week very real. It helps you see them in a new, deeper way and thus inspires greater worship and faith. It is also the type of book you can keep coming back to.

Someone might say “I know all about the final week of Christ’s life—isn’t this old hat?” That is the exact perspective we need to avoid. I’ve found that we actually tend to think that way about things we don’t understand very well.

So if you think you know all about the final week of Christ’s life, that probably shows you actually don’t understand it very well at all. For it is only when we’ve gone beyond the surface of something that we truly begin to see its ongoing power and significance. When we really begin to understand something, the last thing we say about is “well, I know all about that.” Instead, we have a thirst to learn more and more about it. This book will do that for you in relation to the most important week of the most important person who has ever lived.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life and love from studying Christ's Death 13. März 2014
Von David Murray - Veröffentlicht auf
I don’t think anything has ever helped me so much to enter into the final and climactic sufferings of Christ as this book by Justin Taylor and Andreas Kostenberger. By arranging the Gospel accounts in chronological order and reconstructing the timetable of the last week of Christ’s life, you feel as if you are present every step of the way, witnessing your own salvation being worked out and purchased. The additional notes and commentary are factual more than devotional, but the momentum of truth gradually builds until your heart is aflame with love
