“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. One disciple is named Cleopas. We do not know the name of the other disciple. As they walk along the dusty road, they […]
“Descent from the Cross,” Rembrandt, 1634 “When it was evening, a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph came, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus. He approached Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body” (Matthew 27:57-58). Here are the facts as we know them about Joseph: He was a rich man from the village of Arimathea. He […]

One little boy couldn’t wait for the end of the story.
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
It’s Saturday, but Sunday’s coming.

He was forsaken that we might never be forsaken.
Pilate gave the wrong answer to the world’s most important question.
This slap shows how far Jesus was willing to go for us.

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.

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. The differences between Jesus and Barabbas are quite pronounced. Though it is hard to see it clearly in this picture, Tinworth inscribed the words “The World’s Choice...

This beloved spiritual transports us back to the time of Christ’s death and burial. We are asked to relive those events as if we had been standing there watching Jesus die on the cross. This particular version is very appropriate for Holy Saturday because it ends with the verse that asks, “Were you there when they laid him in the tomb?&…
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. You can find a ton of good theology in just these four lines: “Why should I gain from His reward/I cannot give an answer/But this I...
Fernando Ortega sings this beautiful version of “O Sacred Head Now Wounded,” a hymn attributed to Bernard of Clairvaux, taken from a poem that first appeared in the 14th century. The hymn comes from an English translation (of the original Latin) made in 1830 by James Alexander, a Presbyterian minister. His translation contains many more...
Philip Bliss, beloved gospel musician and good friend of D. L. Moody, wrote this great hymn shortly before his untimely death in 1876, in a train wreck near Ashtabula, Ohio. In his last public meeting Mr. Bliss conducted a service for 800 inmates at the Michigan State Prison. Many of them wept in true repentance as he sang the verses of “Hall…
Today’s video features a congregation singing Charles Wesley’s famous hymn “And Can It Be.” I may be wrong in calling it famous because many Americans don’t know the hymn at all. A friend told me that it was mostly unknown in the US until after Billy Graham’s 1954 London Crusade at Harringay Arena. Cliff Barrows ...
