Join us for a lectio divina reading of Matthew's telling of Judas' betrayal of Jesus during Holy Week. An opportunity to allow God to speak to us through his text and his spirit and to invite us into his presence each day during Holy Week.
Today's Holy Week meditation will be focused on Jesus' activities on Holy Tuesday - his confrontations with the religious leaders and asking God to use those texts to speak to us today. This method of scripture reading is known as Lectio Divina, and invites us into a place of quiet and meditation, allowing us to take our thoughts to God, but also to allow God to speak to us.
This is also available as a video on our Facebook page and our Website!
The week between Palm Sunday and Easter is an incredibly dense week, theologically, for Christians. Nearly half of John’s gospel, for example is dedicated to this week, sometimes referred to as Passion Week. Various traditions of Christianity mark the week differently, noting the things that Jesus did in Jerusalem leading up to his confrontation with the Elders, the Chief Priests, Herod and Pilate ahead of his trial and crucifixion on Good Friday.
This week, we’re going to have a daily lectio divina, late each morning, guided at giving each of us a mid-day break as a time for prayer, reflection and meditation on both the historical story of Jesus of Nazareth, and devotionally what that can mean for us today.
