The death of Jesus Christ is the single most important event in human history. While Christians know that Christ died and rose again for sinners, many do not know the story behind the story. John MacArthur’s The Murder of Jesus examines the biblical account of Christ’s arrest, trial, and crucifixion in order to unlock the rich redemptive significance of His saving work on the cross. By recounting the historical narrative of the events surrounding the crucifixion, the reader is given a front-row seat as the drama unfolds around Christ and His disciples. The cross exposes the dreadful horror of our sin and displays the majestic glory of God’s grace. This is a subject no one can afford to neglect or treat lightly. All our hope stems from the cross of Christ.
