The Glory of the Cross: the great crescendo of the gospel is a remarkable read and the centerpiece of this series. As we turn the pages, we follow the gospel narrative through familiar events from the Last Supper to Calvary. But soon we realize that not all is familiar. For we keep discovering new and rich truths which we had not seen as we skated over the familiar gospel verses. These perceptive insights draw us deeper into the story. We find ourselves in an unusual blend of truth and experience. But the pace keeps us; we cant put it down. We are seeing the human side of the Lord Jesus in a new way. The final 24 hours of Jesuss life are a holy of holies in scripture. The gospel writers give us detailed accounts of people who were with him at each stage and of what was said. We also know from Johns gospel how Jesus prayed for us in the Garden of Gethsemane. Prayer of fierce, costly love as the author describes it. We walk through these 40 pages with a deep sense of awe and reverence.
