Christ’s Passover Entry

By: Julie Barrios

We begin our Passion Week in Matthew 21:1-11. “Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them […]

Dependency and Trust Through Unbelief

By: Brooke Meyer

On the Mount of Olives in Matthew 24, Jesus tells His disciples that the future will be dark. Natural disasters, famines, and wars will inevitably happen and tension between leaders of nations will be heightened. The people who once were thought to be believers and followers will grow cold in love and stale in belief. Not […]

The Pain of Jesus Being Betrayed

By: Alyssa Strull

Sometimes we forget that Jesus had friends, he ate meals with them, he traveled with them, and they had amazing experiences together. It was these friends in these last days that left him and betrayed him, not once, not twice, but multiple times. Judas for example, decided to disown Jesus in exchange for a payment […]

Jesus Reclined with The Twelve

By: Julie Barrios

Jesus’ closest friends betrayed and disowned Him. Despite the pain that He might have felt in these experiences, He carried himself with grace, peace, and surrender throughout the last days. As I consider my own life and my tendency to hurt deeply over wrongs that have been done to me, I am astonished to consider […]

Newly Ordered Kingdom

By: Brooke Meyer

Today is Maundy Thursday, a day where we recognize the servanthood and humanity of Christ. As described in yesterday’s post, Jesus sat in peace at the Last Supper with those who would later betray and abandon Him. As Jesus knew that His last hour on Earth was coming, He did something unexpected and typically reserved […]

He Chose to Feel It All & He Invites Us To

By: Tyler Madsen

With heavy and somber hearts, we remember Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross. It can be difficult to fully experience Good Friday in all of its bleakness. It is not fun to willingly submit yourself to a day that is dedicated to the remembrance of the cruelty and suffering that Jesus endured when He died on […]

A Sabbath without Hope

By: Tim Ritter

The Friday of Jesus’ death was the most catastrophic day in history. God himself died. Think of all that Jesus’ friends witnessed and experienced during that day: After the Last Supper, Jesus had asked His disciples to stay up all night to keep watch, but they fell asleep, leaving their messiah to pray in agony […]

The Morning

By: Josh Waidley

The women came to tend your body And cover the stench of failure and decay A small act of love on a grim morning To smother with spices death’s victory You were already back from your journey Before they came, you were quietly walking Having yawned, stretched and risen with the sun Creation knew you […]
