What would you give to spend an evening with Jesus, hearing Him teach and listening to Him pray? This is what we encounter in the Farewell Discourse of John 13–17. As the shadow of the cross loomed, Christ shared His final hours with the disciples to prepare them for His death, quiet their troubled hearts, and intercede on their behalf before the Father.
In Lessons from the Upper Room, a companion to his 12-message video teaching series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson draws us into these intimate hours from the night when Jesus was betrayed. This vivid picture of Christ’s ministry, from His washing the disciples’ feet to His High Priestly Prayer, shows us the heart of Jesus. Discover His deepest desires for His people and take delight in the suffering Savior who has overcome the world.
“This book unpacks the drama and meaning of the last night of Jesus’ life and richly explains how this is good news for us today.”
—Dr. Brandon Crowe
Professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary Philadelphia
“Whether you have walked with Christ for many years or have just become a Christian, Dr. Ferguson’s years of meditation on these chapters, combined with his unequaled pastoral wisdom, make these pages uniquely accessible to a variety of readers.”
