In this study, you will discover the Biblical background to each scene in Christ’s passion.
What was Jesus going through at each moment? How did the Old Testament foretell of Christ’s death? Why did Christ die for us? What did it accomplish? What was the meaning behind of the tearing of the temple veil, the crowning with thorns, and other events during Christ’s Passion?
Catholics who take this study will encounter God’s love to the fullest.
Pope Benedict XVI invites us to think of the Passion, not just as suffering, but also as the passion of a lover. For in the cross, we see God fully revealed as “a lover with all the passion of a true love”.
Jesus doesn’t want our applause. He wants our hearts. Are you ready to draw closer to Jesus in his passion than you ever have before?
