I love my Jewish heritage. No, I wasn't born a Jew but the King, through Jesus, the Lamb of God, adopted me. The legacy of the Jewish customs especially the Passover enriches our Easter experience.
Last week a wonderful friend of mine, Kathryn, sent me a book, Christ in the Passover. I am enjoying learning how the Passover customs and practices are fulfilled in Christ. This week begins the Passion Week and Passover as well. So let’s be intentional and focus on the events of Christ.
Each day between now and next Sunday I will post a Chronological Look at the Passion Week. I want you to be part of this experience. Stop in here every morning, pause for five minutes, and think upon what is happening on this particular day nearly two thousand years ago. Reflect, pray, get out your Bible, and then add your thoughts here in the comments. Let’s bring our community together and chat about what impact this week has on you.
Look up scripture verses and share them. Write your prayers. Let’s bring to life again the week of Easter and thank Jesus for the most profound event to ever take place. His death and resurrection, which is the reason we have hope and a life.
Let’s get started:
Saturday & Sunday
Jesus drew near to Jerusalem, arriving at Bethany six days before Passover, which was the Saturday before the Passion. Jesus was anointed at Simon the leper’s house. On Sunday, there was a great crowd that came to Bethany to see Jesus.
Okay, what is the scripture that places Jesus and Simon’s? What are your thoughts about the crowd? How would it feel to be there? What prayers to you think Christ spoke? Would you have been mad or fearful, like the disciples that Jesus wanted to return to Jerusalem?
What are your thoughts today? I can’t wait to listen in and share this week with you. Love and hugs, Lynn
