Holy Week Reflection on Pope Benedict XVI's "Jesus of Nazareth"
Wednesday of Holy Week, April 20, 2011
"Only if Jesus is risen has anything really occurred that changes the world and the situation of mankind. Then he becomes the criterion on which we can rely. For then God has truly revealed himself." Pope Benedict XVI, Jesus of Nazareth, Vol. 2, 242
In the second volume of his study of Jesus, Pope Benedict takes up what happened in the final week of Christ's earthly life: was he a political revolutionary? How did Jesus understand his own sufferings and death? How should we understand his resurrection, and what relevance does it have for us today? Our panel engaged these and other questions in an evening of reflection and discussion in preparation for the celebration of Easter.
