The thread of Christ as God's sacrificial lamb is woven throughout scripture. Perhaps the most vivid Old Testament example is Abraham's offering of Isaac. The New Testament reveals that Jesus was offered as God's sacrifice not far from the spot where Abraham laid Isaac on the wood. This Lenten cantata combines the distinguished talents of Mark Hayes (composer), John Parker (lyricist), and Audra Parker (narration) to trace the events of Holy Week from Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his sacrificial death on the cross. This stirring recounting of the final days of Jesus' life also includes an optional resurrection anthem, providing both flexibility and a joyous conclusion to the Holy Week story.
