Jesus: The Final Journey
Jesus: The Final Journey, 2006 - 233 pagini
Wearing the same sandals I use when I portray Jesus in my one-man play, Road to Bethany, I walked the Stations of the Cross, collecting the same dirt from Jerusalem in my toes that Jesus did, then trudged up Mt. Olive. In the summer of 1992, I visited Israel intent on experiencing place-locations for my play. I went where He went, from the Dead Sea north to the shores of Galilee and beyond to the source of the Jordan River. After this visit it came to me that I should write about His last year on earth, because the gospels tell us where he went and what He did, but almost nothing of the awhy.a Accompany Him now, via these gospels, on this, His final journey, beginning with the feeding of the a5000, a and leading inexorably to His crucifixion, death and resurrection. On the way I will attempt to explain why He did what He did and why He went where He did. Think of Jesus: The Final Journey as a mystery story, not so much as a awhodunit, a but rather a awhydunit.a Shall we go?
