As you pray through the Passion Narrative, recall your experience of doing this last Sunday with Matthew. Both evangelists find themes of Exodus and Jesus as King. What variations and nuances can you find?
Let your whole day be soaked with the saving Blood of Jesus by reading scenes in the narrative. Here is a suggested outline:
|1) 6 am (or on rising)||Arrest, Trial, Denial of Peter||18:1–27|
|2) 9 am||Jesus and Pilate||18:28–40|
|3) 12 pm||Scourging, Crown of Thorns, Crucifixion||19:1–30|
|4) 3 pm||Piercing the Side; Burial||19:31–42|
Be close to your Lord throughout this day, just as did the beloved disciple and Mary, mother of Jesus.
