In Following Jesus to Jerusalem, Paul Barnett expounds Luke chapters 9–19 with the intention of provoking faithfulness in the lives of Jesus’ followers today. Using the metaphor of life as a journey, Paul Barnett follows Jesus to Jerusalem and invites us to follow. Barnett stresses the important place of kingdom in this and the ethics of Christian living which naturally follow from being in the presence of a humble Savior. More than a commentary, this important book challenges the way we live in the light of Jesus’ last days.
