3. Good Words for Today: August 15

August 15, 2018

“They stopped walking and looked discouraged” (Luke 24:17). It is Easter and there is no joy. Two disciples are on the road to Emmaus, a little village about seven miles from Jerusalem.

19. A Good Friday Reflection

April 6, 2012

The crowd below parted and I saw a man carrying a huge wood beam on his back. He walked slowly, and with great effort, as he struggled to keep his balance. Another man followed. He put his cross down, took out a whip and started beating his back. Bright red blood appeared on top of the lacerations he had from a previous whipping. I kept hoping he would stop because it looked so painful. But he didn’t.

22. “The Release of Barabbas” by George Tinworth

In the 1870s a British artist named George Tinworth produced a terra cotta rendering of the moment when Pilate releases Barabbas and orders Jesus sent off to be crucified.

25. Friday Video: How Deep the Father’s Love For Us

April 2, 2010

Since this is Good Friday, I wanted a song that focused on the cross. Among the many newer songs, “How Deep the Father’s Love” stands out for its emphasis on the true meaning of death of Christ.
