Easter Sunday – April 1st, 2018 – 9 AM Worship
We celebrate the fact that Jesus came back from the dead. Because He lives, we have new life now. Because He lives, we have eternal life in heaven!
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. Join us this Friday to learn more at Victory Lutheran Church.
The word ‘maundy’ is believed to be related to the Latin word ‘mandatum’ or mandate. On this night, Jesus gave a mandate to His disciples that they were to continue celebrating His supper in remembrance of Him. We continue to follow Christ’s mandate tonight as we receive the gifts He gives through His body and blood
The events recorded in the Bible are historic fact. They took place in time and at specific places that we could travel to today. This Lenten season we’ll learn about some of the places Jesus went, and the miracles that took place there.
