Knight reflects on the Holy Week narrative in the Gospel of Matthew in light of Jewish-Christian relations in the post-Holocaust period. He deals with biblical texts in light of anti-Semitic and anti-Judaistic overtones. He uses the strategy of the Midrashic process to reach for the rich field of meanings that grows as the stories and the relationship they describe lives and grow. The result is a re-configured identity for Christians--as in the example of Jacob wrestling with the angel at the Jabbok (Gen. 32:22-32). This leaves us with a "limp" of humility as Christians who face up to the post-Shoah world. According to Knight, the liturgical and homiletical materials developed for Holy Week in the church should reflect this reality. A "midrashic" approach is one in which texts become open-ended, inviting dialogue as we reflect on the passion of Jesus in light of the lens and experience of the Holocaust.

An ongoing issue for clergy as well as Christians in general is how to approach New Testament narratives about the crucifixion of Jesus in relation to Jews, Judaism, and the horrific events of the Holocaust. The events of Holy Week pose particular challenges for clergy and congregations. In this book Henry Knight helps us deal with Holy Week texts in light of our post-Holocaust world and provides practical examples of prayers, liturgies, and resource material to help pastors prepare for and lead worship and teach during this important time in the life of a congregation.
