In The Farewell Discourse and Final Prayer of Jesus, D. A. Carson offers a penetrating exposition of John 14–17—the finale of Jesus’ teaching. These short studies touch on many of the great themes of the Christian faith, held together by the experience of the cross that loomed over Christ and his disciples at Gethsemane.
