Passion Sunday – an up and down kind of week

Isaiah 50:4-9a, Luke 22, 23

Passion Sunday brings us into Holy Week. A week of contrasts and ups and downs in the story of the Christ. Dinner with friends, triumphal entry, clearing the temple, teaching and parables, Passover feast, betrayal, desertion, crucifixion. Up and down, rollercoaster type of week.

But how does it end? The final word is RESURRECTION! God’s final word in all the ups and downs of the world is new life. The ups and downs do not end on the down. That’s what he has for us in the big picture of this coming Holy Week.
