The Passion Narrative proceeds from arrest through trial to condemnation, execution, and burial. In each Gospel, it records the longest consecutive action of Jesus. It has captured the attention and imagination of dramatists and artists, and it has inspired the poetry and music of the church for two thousand years. Alongside â€œborn of the Virgin Mary,â€ the other phrase that made its way into the creed, â€œsuffered under Pontius Pilate,â€ has become a marker anchoring Christian belief about the Son of God to a Jesus who was a human figure of actual history.
Historically, Jesusâ€™ death was the most public event of his life. Theologically, Christians have interpreted the death of Jesus on the cross as a key element of Godâ€™s plan for the justification, redemption, and salvation of all. Spiritually, the Jesus of the Passion has been the focus of Christian meditation for countless would-be disciples who take seriously the command of the Master to take up the cross and follow him. Pastorally, the passion is the centerpiece of Lent and Holy Week, and the most sacred time in the liturgical calendar. From every point of view, the Passion is the central narrative in the Christian story.
The massive amount of material written on the Passion Narrative creates a need for a work that brings together the scattered views, proposals, and interpretations. In this work, Raymond Brown sifts through the material to offer a full-scale commentary on the Passion Narratives of the Gospels.
The Death of the Messiah serves a variety of audiences: scholars, pastors, students of the religion and theology of the Bible, interested Christians, and those of any persuasion who seek knowledge about the passion and death of Jesus. Brown treats subjects in a readable way, even when it requires greater length or exposition.
