Let This Cup Pass from Me | Lenten Reflections for Individuals and Groups (Rush)
Who is this Jesus who died a tortured death on the cross?
Through the Passion narrative in the Gospel of Matthew, Charles Rush examines Jesus' experience of humanity: He is not accepted. He is unjustly convicted. He is betrayed. He wrestles for meaning. He dies alone.
In Let This Cup Pass from Me, Rush invites you to see reflections of their own humanity in Jesus' humanity, suffering, and death. You, like Jesus, may face frustration and anxiety, injustice and suffering, loneliness and doubt. Join Rush as he studies Matthew to speak to life's challenges. Perhaps Jesus can show us that "our salvation asks that we be nothing more, though nothing less, than fully human."
Each chapter includes reflection questions that can be used for individual devotion or group study.
