Have you ever thought about the last week of Jesus’ life? Starting this Sunday morning we are going to look at “What Happened?” and take
the time to understand what Jesus did for you and me.
Did you know that approximately half the chapters in the Gospel of John record the first thirty-three years of the life of Jesus and the other half record the last week of His life?
Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.” John 12:23 NIV. These solemn words quoted above announce that His hour had come. This is where John divides his writings and begins to tell us about that last week of Jesus’ life.
The authors of these Gospels tell us by the way they have prioritized the last week in the life of Jesus that what we call “Holy Week” was the most important week in His life. They did this because it was during that week that He suffered and died and was raised from the dead for our salvation.
Traditionally, we make much of Christmas, but the four Gospel writers make much of Easter. As committed followers of Christ should note this week that was so very important to Him, it should be the most important week of our Church year.
If you want to make this week important to you, if you have never done so before, believe that this was the week Jesus died and rose again for your personal salvation.
Come join us for the next three weeks as we learn what Jesus did for the world.
Make Every Day Count!
