pedro-orrente.pg_Thank you for joining with me as together we have walked with Jesus on a journey of [re] discovering the ancient texts promising God would return to Zion and bring deliverance to his people through his chosen vessel. The Gospel record and other New Testament letters have given insight into Jesus’ own understanding that he would fulfill God’s promise, but in a way no one had considered.

Today is Palm Sunday, and we traditionally use this day to celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem during Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The cries of “Hosanna” we hear today will quickly turn into threats of “Crucify him” as our week nears its end. May God enrich your Easter understanding and celebration these next few days, and may you discover anew the reality that the resurrection of Jesus simply changes everything.

Here are the final Lent Readings for Week 7 | March 21-27, 2016
