Year of Passion, final week

Life of Christ, Book 5

  • Analyses and studies the events and teachings of the last week, day by day, including the Olivet Sermon and the eschatology and the Sermon in the Upper Room (John 13–17), the trials and the crucifixion.
  • Gives detailed teaching about the geography of Jerusalem and how it was during the Passover, with the function and history of the Temple.
  • Deals with Christ as prophet, priest and king, the significance of the Last Supper and the death of Christ. Continues with the doctrine of man taking into account justification (signified by the death of Christ), the total consecration of the human personality (intellect, emotions and will).
  • Introduces the use of the evaluation technique and setting out a scale of effective values and (on the practical side) accounting to the local congregation.
  • Finishes with a comparative analysis of the life of Jesus Christ in the four Gospels.
