Thousands of years after the fact, the world perceives the reality of Jesus’ execution as essentially irrelevant. For many, it’s a historical blip they would prefer to ignore—others imagine it belongs with the tall tales and legends of fiction.
But the truth is, His death is the pivot point for all human history.
The four gospel accounts paint a detailed panorama of the murder of Jesus—details that answer how this ultimate miscarriage of justice accomplished God’s ultimate plan for divine justice. And Mark’s gospel gives a particularly succinct sweep through events that introduces you in rapid succession to
- the main characters and the bit players in the drama of the cross
- the Last Supper and first Communion
- Christ’s agony and betrayal in Gethsemane
- the Crucifixion and the empty tomb
This study will inform and hone your worship, whether you’re approaching Resurrection Sunday or commemorating Christ’s sacrifice day by day. Join John MacArthur to witness The Divine Drama of Redemption, and make sure you know exactly what happened over just a few history-changing days in Jerusalem, 2000 years ago.
