Our Easter series portrays perspectives of different personalities as they interact and encounter Jesus during the Passion Week. We began on March 26th with Judas, who was a friend and follower of Jesus, who became a betrayer. April 2nd, the first Sunday of the month, we look at Simon Peter, who was the leader of the twelve, yet found himself denying Jesus three times. April 9th, Palm Sunday, we will consider Pilate, the Roman leader and his interaction at the trail with Jesus. On Good Friday, April 14th, we will examine the Roman Centurion who was at the foot of the cross when Jesus died.
On April 16th, Easter Sunday, we will portray the story of Mary Magdalene who remarks, “I have seen the Lord!” Finally on April 23rd, the Sunday following Easter, we will delve into the story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus and how they finally recognized the Risen Lord.
We hope that you will join us for each of these portrayals of some of the individuals that were involved in the Passion story. Hopefully as you do, you will find yourself in some of the story line, and identify with the people that walked through the Passion Week. Yet, more than anything, that you will have a greater appreciation of all that Jesus suffered and endured on our behalf.
How might your perspective change during this Easter?
