He Lives: The Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus

This new audio set is by Fr. Henry Wansbrough, editor of the New Jerusalem Bible, is now available.  It is presented by Now You Know Media.  It is available in both CD and MP3 formats.  Seems like it would be a great resource for Lent.
No narrative is more beautiful than the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Now, you can gain a deeper understanding of these powerful events with Fr. Henry Wansbrough, one of the world’s leading biblical scholars.
Although the story of Jesus’ Passion, Death, and Resurrection forms the core of Christian belief, the full depth of its meaning is often not immediately understandable to twenty-first century readers. Occurring some two thousand years ago, these events were narrated with the language and symbols of contemporaries in a civilization and culture considerably different from ours.
In He Lives: The Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus, you will delve into the world of the biblical authors in order to understand the religious message of these events. As you do so, you will gain a deeper understanding of not only the historical context but also the profound theology expressed in these accounts.
You will journey through the gospel accounts of the Last Supper, the Agony in the Garden, Jesus’ interrogation, and His ultimate condemnation by Pontius Pilate, gaining deep insights into the theological and salvific nature of these events. After looking at the powerful themes of forgiveness in the Cross, you will consider what the Resurrection means for the mission of the Church and your own spirituality. Finally, you will explore the glorification and transcendence of the Risen Christ.
Embark on this journey of forgiveness, hope, and glory today.

I usually give up television and games for Lent and thought this would be a good spiritual aid. It downloads as a zip file which some devices can't extract (Kindle). I was able to download it again to my computer and burn to a disc to make it more portable. I listened to a moment of it. Fr Wansbrough who has a heavy British accent was a little hard to understand but I think once I get accostomed it will be fine. I know my husband who wears hearing aids would have a hard time adjusting.

Wishing you all a very holy and productive Lent. This is my favorite time, I become so much closer to our Lord, more peaceful and a better person. If only I put the same effort into the rest of the year! susan
