Holy Week: From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection. The second part of the Pope's bestselling book on Jesus Christ as portrayed in Scripture: insightful and authoritative. WHO IS JESUS? Many modern scholars have tried to reinterpret him as a myth, a political revolutionary, a prophet whose teaching was distorted by his followers. In short, anything other than the traditional Christian understanding of him as the Messiah, the Son of God. But Jesus of Nazareth truly is the Son of God, insists Benedict XVI. His theological studies, over many decades, have led this eminent scholar to conclude that proper historical scholarship certainly cannot disprove the Christian claim of Christ's divinity. Indeed, Benedict maintains that the evidence, fairly considered, brings us face-to-face with the challenge of Jesus - a real man who taught and acted with claims of divine authority, claims not so easily dismissed. Benedict XVI presents this challenge in his new book, Jesus of Nazareth - Holy Week, the sequel to his widely acclaimed first volume which attracted praise from Catholic and non-Catholic Christians alike.

  • Why was Jesus rejected by the religious leaders of his day?
  • Who was responsible for his death?
  • Did he establish a Church to carry on his work?
  • How did Jesus view his suffering and death?
  • How should we?
  • And, most importantly, did Jesus really rise from the dead and what does his resurrection mean?
