In this historical narrative, Pastor-Teacher Dr. John MacArthur gives a complete biblical account of the events leading up to and including Jesus’ crucifixion. This chronological examination includes a detailed look at everything from Judas’s betrayal to Peter’s denial to Christ’s final words on the cross and the significance of His atoning work. In the midst of the drama, MacArthur draws out personal points in regard to handling unjust suffering, as well as examples of the disciples’ faulty faith. MacArthur’s most poignant question, however, asks the reader to investigate who is responsible for Jesus’ death. The answer might surprise you even while it elevates you to a new level of doctrinal maturity by shedding light on God’s sovereignty during the most devilish murder in history.
