The Meaning of Holy Week


April 2, 2010

Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve
disciples aside and said to them, "We are going up to Jerusalem,
and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the
teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death and will turn
him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On
the third day he will be raised to life!"
-- Matthew 20:17-19

One thing the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) make clear,
Jesus' death on the cross was no accident. Jesus knew the challenge
that awaited him in Jerusalem and he walked into it to deliver us
from the same fate. If only we will face our challenges with a
faith that God will lead us to triumph beyond our pain!
