FAITH FORMATION SERIES

A Biblical Walk Through Christ's Passion

March 26 through May 7 (see schedule below)

7:00 – 8:50 PM – SSFP PARISH CENTER

 

Filmed on location in the Holy Land, No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ's Passion, reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Best-selling author Edward Sri guides you through the last hours of Christ's life in this biblical pilgrimage. While taking this study, you will walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary.

In this study, you will discover: 

  • The Biblical background to each scene in Christ's passion.
  • What Jesus went through at each moment.
  • How the Old Testament foretold of Christ’s death.
  • Why Christ died for us and what it accomplished.
  • The meaning behind of the tearing of the temple veil, the crowning with thorns, and other events during Christ’s Passion.

Edward Sri also unpacks commonly misunderstood sayings of Jesus, such as:

  • “Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass?”—Was Jesus thinking of backing out at the last minute?
  • “My God, my God why have you abandoned me?”—Was Jesus really abandoned by the Father on the cross?
  • “You have said so.”—What does that mean?
