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 re-examine 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.

Jesus's last week shook but also saved the world. From Palm Sunday to Easter morning, each day and encounter were critical. This book leads the reader step by step along Jesus's route from triumphal entry to the cross and finally to glory. Numerous maps and diagrams shed fresh light on each Gospel's claims. We are reminded not only of what Christ did but also where his way points us now. An excellent beginning-to-intermediate guide!

Holy Week is arguably the most sacred time of year for Christians. Andreas Kostenberger and Justin Taylor provide a simple yet eloquent survey of the final week of Jesus's life. They take readers on a pilgrimage through the Gospels and invite us to follow Jesus in his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, on to the dark and tragic moments of Golgotha, and through to the glorious and unspeakable joy at the feet of the risen Jesus. In short, this is a wonderful resource for individuals, families, and fellowships to learn more about the Easter story, the greatest story ever told.

-Douglas J. Moo,
The Final Days of Jesus helps believers take note of the historical events leading up to Jesus's death on the cross. Readers are challenged to see the provocation that Jesus's message and life represented, leading to his arrest and execution. The book demonstrates that historical facts and Christian worship can and should go hand in hand.
-Eckhard J. Schnabel,
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
The center point of history is the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Thus The Final Days of Jesus is an incredibly important work, for it enables us to see the full impact of the social and religious tension that lay behind Jesuss death as well as the theological implications for us. This book is both well researched and well written and is must-reading for students of the Word and indeed for all who wish to understand more fully the God-led events that resulted in the cross.
