Good Friday, Between Noon and Three, in the Heart of Our Home
Jesus was captured and taken to Pontius Pilate. There, since it was Passover, Pontius Pilate was going to release one of the prisoners. He asked the crowd "Whom shall I release?" The crowd answered "Barrabas!" Then Pontius Pilate said "What shall I do with Jesus?" The crowd answered "Crucify Him!"
Jesus was beaten until He bled. And He was given a crown of thorns.
Jesus was given a heavy cross to carry.
He carried His very heavy cross up a steep hill.
He was crucified.
The Seven Last Words:
1 "Father, forgive them;
they do not know what they are doing" (Lk 23:34)
2 "I assure you: this day
you will be with Me in paradise" (Lk 23:43)
3 "Woman, there is your
Son" (Jn 19:26)
4 "My God, My God, why
have You forsaken Me?" (Mt 27:46
5 "I am thirsty"
6 "Now it is finished"
7 "Father, into Your
hands I commend My spirit" (Lk 23:46) ~~~
He was taken down from the cross and He was wrapped in linen.
And was placed in a tomb.
With a stone rolled across it.
And now we wait.
[Note (because I don't want to forget): Karoline keeps trying to put Mary's figure into the tomb. She insists, "She wants to be with her Jesus!"]
...that their hearts may be encouraged as they are knit together in love, to have all the riches of assured understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures or wisdom and knowledge. ~Col 2:2
