Top Jesus scholars Marcus J Borg and John Dominic Crossan join together to reveal a radical and little known Jesus As both authors reacted to and responded to questions about Mel Gibson s blockbuster The Passion of the Christ they discovered that many Christians are unclear on the details of events during the week leading up to Jesus s crucifixion Using the gospel of Mark as their guide Borg and Crossan present a day by day account of Jesus s final week of life They begin their story on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem The first entry that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city symbolized military strength The second heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey The Jesus introduced by Borg and Crossan is this new moral hero a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church s traditional teachings The Last Week depicts Jesus giving up his life to protest power without justice and to condemn the rich who lack concern for the poor In this vein at the end of the week Jesus marches up Calvary offering himself as a model for others to do the same when they are confronted by similar issues Informed challenged and inspired we not only meet the historical Jesus but meet a new Jesus who engages us and invites us to follow him
