Preparing for Easter

Ideas for Observing Holy Week

 

As we enter into the week leading up to Easter, it is good for us to take time to focus on the events of Jesus’ final week in Jerusalem, climaxing in his death and resurrection.

 

Here are some ideas for how you might do that:

 

1. Attached is a devotional guide for the whole church year published by The Village Church. It has a section on Lent beginning on p. 70 which you may find a useful devotional guide with Scripture Readings and songs to sing during this season. Redeemer has printed copies of the Lent and Easter sections available on Sunday mornings.

You may also find it here:

2. Use this 9-Day Devotional by Crossway called Jesus’ Path to the Cross. This is connected to the ESV.org Bible reading plan and is paired with readings and notes from the new ESV Archaeology Study Bible. (I’m particularly excited about this publication as it is co-edited by Dr. David Chapman for whom I had the privilege of working as a Teaching Assistant while at Covenant Theological Seminary.)

3. This Thursday is Maundy Thursday. Redeemer does not yet have a Maundy Thursday service. But this would be a great opportunity to invite some people over for dinner, or get a group to go out for dinner, and read a few of the Scripture passages from one of the Gospels covering the last supper, Jesus’ arrest, and crucifixion.
