With a combination of video presentations and books, this course aims to help you understand the religious meaning of the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus as handed down to us in the four gospels. You will be invited into a deeper friendship with Jesus by reflecting on the link between love and suffering and on his traditional seven last words. You will see how each of his last words shows how Jesus understands you. What a great way to spiritually prepare for Lent!
