Eight Words of Jesus

Eight Words of Jesus

$19.99

Paperback

Each of the gospels has its unique insights into the meaning of passion; each paints its own distinctive portrait of the man on the cross. Many Christians are used to meditating on the last seven words from the cross, drawn from all four gospels, but the gospels also record several sayings of Jesus on the way to the cross: words spoken to the crowd, to Peter, to the high priest, to Pilate, to his mother and his best friend. In John's gospel, these words seem imbued with a kind of universal significance beyond the immediate story itself. This book helps us reflect on an evangelist whose story speaks of the coming into the world of the Word made flesh, for whom words and signs are linked throughout his gospel.

"These meditations reveal Michael Sadgrove's particular love for the way St. John tells the passion story. The Eight Words of Jesus helps us to engage with the evangelist for whom words and signs are linked and who speaks of 'the Word made flesh'. As we explore the significance of each of these eight sayings within the passion story and within John's Gospel itself, we find ourselves surprised by their power to speak to our own times. In allowing these words to touch and challenge us, we may discover faith affirmed and day-to-day life transformed."--BOOK JACKET.
