Two Testimonies

Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord…

The New Tomb

John 19:38-42 After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus by night, came bringing a mixture…

The Cup of Death

John 19:28-37 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his…

Crossroad

Mark 8:27 – 9:1 And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter…

The Crucifixion

John 19:17–27 So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them. Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It read, “Jesus…

Ecce Homo

John 19:1-16 Then Pilate took Jesus and flogged him. And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. They came up to him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” and struck him with their hands. Pilate went out again and said to…

The King and the Governor

John 18:28–40 Then they led Jesus from the house of Caiaphas to the governor’s headquarters. It was early morning. They themselves did not enter the governor’s headquarters, so that they would not be defiled, but could eat the Passover. So Pilate went outside to them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this man?” They answered him, “If this man were…

Clean

Luke 5:12–16 While he was in one of the cities, there came a man full of leprosy. And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him. And he charged him to tell…

The Bloody City

Nahum 3 Woe to the bloody city,     all full of lies and plunder—     no end to the prey! The crack of the whip, and rumble of the wheel,     galloping horse and bounding chariot! Horsemen charging,     flashing sword and glittering spear, hosts of slain,     heaps of corpses, dead bodies without end—     they stumble over the bodies! And all for the…

Judgment

Nahum 1:15–2:13 Behold, upon the mountains, the feet of him     who brings good news,     who publishes peace! Keep your feasts, O Judah;     fulfill your vows, for never again shall the worthless pass through you;     he is utterly cut off. The scatterer has come up against you.     Man the ramparts;     watch the road; dress for battle;     collect…
