“In the wisdom and purpose of God,” says James Montgomery Boice, “the tragedy of the cross is a triumph since it is this that makes salvation possible.”

More than a message of Christ’s triumph, the final chapters of the Gospel of John describe how we can triumph as well. Volume 5 covers chapters 18–21 and deals with the culmination of Christ’s earthly ministry, centering on his betrayal, trial, death, and resurrection. Topics discussed include

• “The Charge against the Prisoner” (18:19–24)

• “Words from the Cross” (19:25–27)

• “For Whom Did Christ Die?” (19:30)

• “The Not-Quite-Empty Tomb” (20:1–10)

• “The Best News Ever Heard” (20:18)

• “Christ’s Last Word” (21:22)
