A guide to Jesus’s key experiences and teachings on each day of Holy Week, Jesus’s Final Week by professor and pastor William F. Cook III doesn’t merely comment on the events themselves but studies the key biblical passages carefully, evaluating their meaning and significance, while also highlighting the importance of Old Testament references. Each chapter further includes application suggestions that will leave a spiritual impression on the heart of the reader, as well as questions for personal or small group reflection.
From Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem to acclaim on Palm Sunday to his cursing of the fig tree, clearing of the Temple, final Passover meal, death and resurrection, Jesus’s Final Week leads readers through a close examination of the last experiences of Jesus’s earthly life. Substantive enough for classroom and church use, this book will delight any Christian who wants to learn more about the events of Holy Week and to prepare for celebrating Easter.

“Judas’s betrayal, which was motivated in part by greed, explains Jesus’s warning, ‘Watch out and be on guard against all greed, because one’s life is not in the abundance of his possessions’ (Luke 12:15); and Paul’s statement, ‘The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil’ (1 Tim 6:10). Mary’s act of extravagant devotion teaches us that sometimes extravagance for kingdom causes is the most appropriate use of our resources. Christ’s church needs more people like Mary of Bethany.” (Page 6)
“The fact that Judas served as the treasurer for the group suggests he was a person of some ability. Everyone must have felt he was trustworthy. Judas’s fate is a striking reminder of the danger of greed and how easily it can capture a person’s soul.” (Page 5)
