Featuring videos with the late Rev. Daniel J. Harrington, S.J., and Rev. Thomas D. Stegman, S.J.
The Gospel of John is used prominently throughout Holy Week and the Easter season in the liturgy. Explore with us what makes John’s Gospel unique, the challenge of accepting Salvation, and the story of the final “hour” of Jesus’s life. Fathers Harrington and Stegman artfully present on the Passion Narrative in John, through the Resurrection to a discussion on what it means for christian disciples to carry out the mission of Jesus according to John’s farewell discourses. This STM Online: Crossroads course is based on a campus workshop presented in Spring 2011.
