Last week we journeyed through Holy Week together. We looked at the betrayal of Judas, the importance of prayer in our lives, the denial from Peter, the brutality of Jesus’ death all taken in silence, the Sabbath, and the resurrection of Jesus! Now, we look at a world with a risen King and how the disciples coped with encountering Jesus after his resurrection. It is a joyous moment but also one full of scepticism and very real human reactions.
On this Holy Week we will follow some of the key events leading to the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Take some time out each day to allow the word of God to nourish you from within.
