Good Friday – One Tragic Death – Luke 23:39-43 – April 19, 2019 – 7 PM
Tenebrae is a Latin word which means, “shadows.” The distinctive feature of the Tenebrae service is the gradual darkening of the sanctuary. The service is symbolic of the apparent victory of the powers of darkness over Jesus at his death, but of their actual defeat by Him who is the Light of the World. The first part of the service recounts the events leading up to the death of Jesus as recorded by the Gospel writer, John. Part two reviews the seven last words of Jesus from the cross.
