What happened in the final week of Jesus of Nazareth’s earthly life? In Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week—From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection, Pope Benedict takes up that and other crucial questions. How did the man whom many hailed as the Messiah come to be rejected by the leaders of his own people? Was he a political revolutionary? Who was responsible for his death: the Romans or the Jewish authorities, or both? How did Jesus view his suffering and death? How should we? Did he establish a Church to carry on his work? What did he teach about the End of the World? And most importantly, did Jesus really rise from the dead?

This is a book for Christians—Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox, as well as other believers and non-believers. Benedict brings to his study the vast learning of a brilliant scholar, the passionate searching of a great mind, and the deep compassion of a pastor’s heart. In the end, he dares readers to grapple with the meaning of Jesus life, teaching, death, and resurrection.
