The English translation of the book in Spanish that became a best-seller on Amazon Mexico on its first day of publication.

It’s not the same to know about someone as it is to truly know him. You can know about someone by reading about him or hearing the testimonies and anecdotes that others share. To truly know someone, however, implies a personal relationship in which you come to understand how he thinks and even what he feels inside. You come to know someone through a dynamic and profound relationship that is constantly renewed.

Our life of faith, when taken seriously, is a constant getting to know Jesus. In these pages, the author takes us into different episodes of the passion and death of Jesus and invites us to contemplate closely what happens there. Among the disciples, we will feel the warmth of spring in the Holy Land during the day and the cool breeze at night, bathed in the glow of the full moon that marks the celebration of Easter. We will listen attentively to the words of Jesus and carefully observe the reactions of everyone else present. Above all, we will perceive the sensations and feelings of each one, especially those of Jesus. This is how we can come to know Him personally.
