The Hour of Jesus

Regular price $12.95 USD
Regular price Sale price $12.95 USD
Offers a synthesis between two different approaches to the Gospel text. On the one hand, the reader is presented with a correct and fairly simple analysis of the text following the methods of modern exegesis. On the other hand, the approach is kept in line with the great traditions of the Fathers of the Church and the more important monastic traditions. The ultimate scope of this twofold approach is to reveal the spiritual meaning of the Gospel and the mystery of salvation unfolding in it as the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus are considered under the tutelage of an eminently gifted authority on the text. The emphasis is not on the sorrows, the suffering, the pain, and the humiliation of Jesus. In John, the Passion represents the elevation and the triumph of Christ illumined by the light of Easter. It always points to the resurrection.
