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. Every day this week we are intentionally focusing on the Passion Week of Christ and Passover.
Each day between now and Easter Sunday I will post a Chronological Look at the Passion Week. Remember to 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.
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:
The triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, followed by His visit to the temple, and His return to Bethany. It was Nisan 10, when the Passover lambs were selected. Likewise, the triumphal entry was the day when Christ presented Himself as Israel's Paschal Lamb.
Okay, what Is Nisan and Paschal? What do you think it would have been like to be on the road, so excited that you believe the promised King is coming that you throw your coat ont he road in front of Him? What are your thoughts today on the entry. Do you know what gate He entered the city and why. What does that have to do with the return of Christ. So much to talk about here.
What are your thoughts today? I can’t wait to listen in and share this week with you. Love and hugs, Lynn
