Show Notes

Last week we jumped to the end of John’s gospel, because it was Easter Sunday

– today we return to night of Jesus’ arrest prior to his crucifixion
• think of what we are doing this way:
◦ some films include flashbacks to events that occurred prior to the current period 
◦ flashbacks supply explanations or fill in important details 
• so this week and next, will be like flashbacks for us 
◦ scenes of events leading up to Jesus’ resurrection 
– the “Church Calendar” is an ancient tradition 
• it divides the year into seasons attached to specific events
◦ it also provides daily scripture reading to keep those events in mind
• according to the Church Calendar Easter is not a day but a season 
◦ it goes from Easter Sunday up to Pentecost Sunday 
◦ so it is fitting to return to the cross and resurrection during this “season”
