Holy Week

Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Resurrection Sunday (also known as Easter). I have been blogging since 2008 and have posted many times on the events of Holy Week. On the one hand I don’t wish to keep writing and posted material that is already here. On the other hand there are constantly new friends discovering The Master’s Table and following that have not read those previous posts. And we are talking about the greatest story ever told; it is central to our identity as Christians and never gets old.

This will be a short anthology of my personal favorite posts on Holy Week over the past seven years. You can always click Holy Week in the list of categories in the left-hand sidebar to scroll through every post tagged with that category, beginning with the most recent.

This post explains what’s so good about Good Friday. It features a beautiful image sharing Good Friday wishes and the poem I wrote in 2009 titled He Cannot Save Himself. You’re welcome to share the poem in any format but please give the author credit.

Here is my Easter Sermon from 2012. It centers around the words of Abraham (God will provide himself a lamb) and the words of Caiaphas the High Priest at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion (It is better that one man should die than the whole nation).

We learn a model prayer that we call the Lord’s Prayer but these are three prayers that Jesus actually prayed during Holy Week.

All the way back in 2009 I asked: Is Jesus the Sheep or the Shepherd? He is both of those things and many, many more. We use the language of analogy and symbolism because the love of God surpasses our understanding.

I have also shared several music and spoken word videos. Here are links to a few of my favorites as well; if you don’t click anything in this post please watch the S.M. Lockridge videos.
