chronological day 306 :)

Another tough day.  Let’s read quietly, reflective: Mark 14:53-65, Matthew 26:69-75, Luke 22:54-65, John 18:25-27, Mark 15:1, Matthew 27:1-2, Luke 22:66-71, and Matthew 27:3-10.  As the holiday season starts here – Thanksgiving is upon us, we are Christmas shopping and getting ready for events, lots of reasons to celebrate Jesus – it’s a good day to remember that we don’t only worship the Baby, we worship the Savior.  What your highlight today?

Jesus never sinned, never lied… it heartbreaking to read about people mocking Him (like the soldiers hitting Him and asking Him to prophesy). They really didn’t know what they were doing or saying.

“Then some began to spit on Him, and to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, and to say to Him, ‘Prophesy!’ And the officers struck Him with the palms of their hands” Mark 14:65

There’s nothing we face that Jesus cannot understand. He is truly acquainted with our grief, and even more…I almost feel like we just now got Jesus, and the crucifixion is already upon us. In the context of the entire history (because He was there in the very beginning), this is all the more heart rending.

    I agree Mrs. Jennifer this reading is going at a fast pace now that we’re moving into the cruxifiction. I’m my mind I would still love to see Jesus on the earth working miracles while in human form but I have to remind myself why this happened. It bothers me that the high priest would allow themselves to come to terms in finding Jesus guilty in order to murder him but this same moral also allows them to say “it wouldn’t be right to put this money in the temple treasury since it was used to buy a mans death”. It wouldn’t be right they exclaimed! My take-a-way today, we shouldn’t choose what is wrong or right. We know and have to follow law/religious law. Don’t judge and don’t condemn. It took many years to come to grips as I had anger brewing inside of me. Thank you Jesus for opening my eyes.
