This Sunday at Immanuel: Chapter 26: The Hour of Darkness
Chapter 26 of The Story tells the story of Jesus’ passion. Our reading of chapter 26 includes a number of stories that are part of the last days of Jesus on earth. John’s gospel records a longer teaching of Jesus to the disciples recorded in chapters 14-16. These words prepare the disciples for the coming event of his death, but also are available to us as words from our Lord to guide us during all times of challenge and grief and loss. Jesus’ word to us is a word of peace in the middle of our “troubles”. The one facing death, spends time comforting us as we face our trials. What a Savior! This week’s chapter also includes the stories of Jesus’ last supper, arrest, trial and crucifixion which we will focus on at our Good Friday Service.
