As promised, this has been a week with plenty of drama. From the conspiracy of the chief priests, elders and high priest who plotted to arrest Jesus and put him to death, to the betrayal by Judas, the Last Supper and the Agony in the Garden, it all leads to today, the crucifixion of Jesus.
Churches throughout the world will be reading from the Gospel of John, Chapter 18, which walks through Jesus’ arrest, trial, carrying of the cross, crucifixion and burial.
There were a few women gathered at the foot of the cross upon which Jesus died, including his own mother, Mary. We can only imagine how painful that would have been for Mary to watch the events of this week unfold, particularly her son’s death.
