Author: Fleming Rutledge Genre: Crucifixion of Jesus Christ Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing ISBN: 9780802875341 Book Pages: 696 Format: PDF, ePub & Mobi
Few treatments of the death of Jesus Christ have made a point of accounting for the gruesome, degrading, public manner of his death by crucifixion, a mode of execution so loathsome that the ancient Romans never spoke of it in polite society. Rutledge probes all the various themes and motifs used by the New Testament evangelists and apostolic writers to explain the meaning of the cross of Christ. She shows how each of the biblical themes contributes to the whole, with the Christus Victor motif and the concept of substitution sharing pride of place along with Irenaeus's recapitulation model.

Author: Joseph Fichtner Genre: Religion Publisher: Liturgical Press ISBN: 0814623603 Book Pages: 60 Format: PDF, ePub & Mobi
Fichtner offers a striking retelling of the passion narrative that enables anyone to participate in the crucifixion today as a Peter, Mary Magdalene or Mary, Mother of Jesus, not only in suffering but also in the triumph. He vividly retells 38 of Jesus' stories by characterizing 15 people who are somehow involved in the crucifixion of Christ. Each presentation concludes with a reflection-prayer which updates the event of the crucifixion and shows its personal and social implications.

Use these dramatic monologues for a unique perspective on the events of Jesus' crucifixion. Viewed through the eyes of a Blacksmith, Carpenter, Stone Mason, Tanner, and Basket Maker, the presentations introduce the congregation to those who crafted the whip, wove the crown of thorns, forged the nails, constructed the cross, and chiseled out the tomb. Pastors can present these monologues themselves or assign them to church members. They have the flexibility of being performed very simply or quite elaborately. Few if any props are necessary. Jeffrey R. Ingold is the associate pastor of First Lutheran Church in Nashville, Tennessee. He previously served at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. Ingold earned the Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, and the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Theater from West Virginia Wesleyan College. He has produced several plays, liturgical dramas, and musicals, and is a principal member of the Nashville Opera Chorus.

Author: Gerard Stephen Sloyan Genre: Religion Publisher: Fortress Press ISBN: 1451408552 Book Pages: 228 Format: PDF, ePub & Mobi
What was crucifixion? Why was Jesus of Nazareth executed and what really happened? Gerard Sloyan begins with history and traces the development of the New Testament accounts of Jesus' death. He shows how Jesus' death came to be seen as sacrificial and how the evolving understandings of Jesus' death affected those who suffered most from it - the Jews. He then traces the emergence and development - in theology, liturgy, literature, art - of the conviction that Jesus' death was redemptive, as seen both in soteriological theory from Tertullian to Anselm, in the Reformation and modern eras, and in more popular religious responses to the crucifixion. Especially fascinating is the story of the emergence of a distinct "Passion piety" that still characterizes the West. In all this Sloyan detects the separation of the cross from Jesus' life and resurrection, allowing the mythicizing of an event too large for mere words to handle: the mystery of the cross.
