One step at a time, Jesus slowly made His way toward the cross as the culmination of His work on earth. Starting in Jericho, our Lord’s last week of life was a journey filled with unshakeable hope, profound trust in the Father, an unswerving commitment to the pain He had to endure, and an unfailing love for humanity.
In Seven Days to the Cross Brian Byrne examines the events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, weaving together the details of the four Gospels and adding historical facts that round out the story of the Messiah’s final days on earth.
In addition to the eye-opening description of what Jesus experienced during the last week, Brian reflects on what it means to take up our cross and follow Jesus. At the end of each chapter, in a section titled “In His Footsteps,” Brian contemplates what it would have been like to be with Jesus on each of those last seven days and what principles we can all learn from that experience.
Brian invites readers to examine the biblical record of Jesus’ last seven days and develop a greater reverence for the Lord rising out of a deeper personal understanding of what the cross means in our lives.
