The Savior's Final Week by Andrew C. Skinner

Living apostles and prophets have testified that the Atonement of Jesus Christ is the most important event in time or all eternity, and the event upon which our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness rests. This three-volume series explores the Savior's atoning sacrifice which took place in Gethsemane, Golgotha, and the Garden Tomb. The event centers on Gethsemane, the place where the Savior of the universe experiences his greatest suffering. It was the place where all prophetic history came together and eternity hung in the balance — the place where the Savior confronted the bitter cup and drained its dregs to the last drop. In latter-day revelation, the Savior himself bore personal testimony of his redemptive experience in that garden spot on the Mount of Olives and explained its significance for all mankind. Golgotha is a necessary sequel to Gethsemane, for what began in the garden of Gethsemane was completed on Golgotha's hill as well as in the Garden Tomb. In Gethsemane Jesus consumed the bitter cup so that we would not have to. On Golgotha's hill the bitter cup was refilled and drunk again. In this second book of Andrew Skinner's trilogy about the Atonement, we are drawn into the events surrounding the crucifixion of the Lord. The author brings scriptural and historical insights to bear on his discussion of what he calls "as profound a story of unsurpassed concern for others in the face of violent treatment as will ever be found." In The Garden Tomb, the third volume in his trilogy on the Atonement of our Savior, Brother Skinner affirms the wonder of it all—that Jesus did conquer the tomb, becoming that "as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." Citing the scriptures, credible testimonies of faithful Saints, and the teachings of leaders of the Church, this inspiring book vividly describes the Savior's glorious triumph over the grave and testifies of our own eventual liberation from death. In doing so, Brother Skinner dispels some of the most compelling uncertainties associated with mortality: What happens to our spirits at the moment of death? What might we experience in the interval between death and resurrection? What will the wonder of resurrection mean to us and to those we love? The Garden Tomb affirms the message of the ages: All mankind will be resurrected. Because of Jesus Christ, we are assured that the grave is not our final destination, merely the portal to immortality and eternal life.
