Good Friday Worship

7 PM April 14, 2017

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Having said this, he breathed his last. Luke 23:44-46

Jesus has been faithful unto death. What more is there to say? And yet, in the midst of his final breaths, our Lord manages to forgive.

The whole of creation grieved when Jesus died.

Read the following daily readings to deepen your understanding of Sunday’s text and after the readings ask the question, How emotional is Jesus’ journey to the cross to you?

Friday: Crucifixion (Good Friday), Luke 23:32-47

Saturday: Burial of Jesus, Luke 23:48-56

 

Maundy Thursday Worship

Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood. (Luke 22:17-20)

Dinner is served, and Jesus might be the only one present who truly understands that this is to be their final meal together. But as ancient tradition gives way to brand new words, it’s sure to be one they’ll remember forever.

Jesus created a new covenant between God and God’s people; one that cannot be broken because God is the only actor in this covenant.
