Tom Wright examines accounts of the events from Palm Sunday to Easter as they appear in the gospels of Matthew and of John, looking at these familiar passages from many unfamiliar angles to help us see them afresh.

Both Matthew and John understand the events of Jesus’ last week as the climax of the entire biblical narrative, and as the great moment when God’s power—made known, paradoxically in the human weakness of Jesus himself—was unveiled for the rescue and remaking of the world.

The Scriptures, the Cross, and the Power of God is accessible for anyone who wants to make Bible study and meditation part of their Lent. There are nine sessions covering the Passion narratives from Palm Sunday to Easter, all contained in this pocket-sized Lent book.

N. T. Wright

Nicholas Thomas “Tom” Wright (1948–) has been named by Christianity Today as one of our time’s top theologians. He is currently professor of New Testament and early Christianity at St. Andrews University. Wright holds a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s in Anglican ministry, and a DPhil, all from University of Oxford.

A fellow and chaplain at Cambridge from 1978 to 1981, he then served as assistant professor of New Testament language and literature at McGill University in Montreal. Before becoming a chaplain, tutor, lecturer, and fellow at Oxford in 1986, Wright served as dean of Lichfield Cathedral, canon theologian of Westminster Abbey, and bishop of Durham.

His academic work has usually been published under the name “N. T. Wright,” but works such as What St. Paul Really Said and Simply Christian, aimed at a more popular readership, were published under the less formal name of “Tom Wright.”
