All through Holy Week Fr. Keith has been reflecting on these events through the lens of the Feasts of Israel. In his Good Friday message he reflects on how Jesus inaugurates a New Covenant with God’s people and this covenant is sealed with his blood.
The crucifixion of Jesus on Good Friday is the means of redemption for the world whether we accept it or not. Christians are called to live out this reality in our lives, so the world might come to understand this reality, repent, and return to God.
Mark 14:1-15 Jesus’ Triumphal entry into Jerusalem descends into the chaos of Good Friday due to unrealised expectations. What are our expectations of God and are they consistent with who he is and what he does in our lives, and the world?
