Discussion of The Last Week by Marcus Borg & John Dominic Crossan
This will be on Zoom, a link will be added here and sent out in the newsletter.
Holy Week is still a mystery to many of us, but it is perhaps one of the most important times in the church calendar. Starting with Palm Sunday each year, we journey the way of the cross with Jesus. For some this is a contemplative time, for others it reawakens difficult and confusing feelings. Marcus Borg and John Crossan unpack the entire week starting with the celebration of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem to the dark days of Good Friday and the hope revealed around the new fire of the Easter Vigil. The book covers the last week of Jesus life, but we will focus on Maundy Thursday (March 6), Good Friday (March 13), and Easter Vigil (March 20).
