And so to the final part of April.

Do you like that gorgeous tulip? I extracted it from a photo taken by my son, Killian.

He also took the photo that I used for this…6b-web

His house overlooks beautiful Lough Corrib, the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland,

and his photos of the West of Ireland are magnificent.

He’s available for commissions.

Contact me if you’re interested.

Quick Note re Fonts:

Lucy asked me what font I’d used for the first scripture on 

Memorial Nisan 9 and I answered incorrectly.

I should have said Italianno.

Now, because he knew before the festival of the passover that his hour had come for him to move out of this world to the Father, Jesus, having loved his own that were in the world, loved them to the end. 2 So, while the evening meal was going on, the Devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Is·car′i·ot, the son of Simon, to betray him, 3 he, knowing that the Father had given all things into [his] hands and that he came forth from God and was going to God, 4 got up from the evening meal and laid aside his outer garments. And, taking a towel, he girded himself. 5 After that he put water into a basin and started to wash the feet of the disciples.

John 13:1-5

Jesus, about to offer his perfect human life as a Ransom, washes the feet of his disciples.

Including those of Judas Iscariot.

Then he dismisses Judas and institutes the Lord’s Evening Meal

which includes the  New Covenant

with his faithful 11 apostles.

In the Jewish calendar,

days start and end at sunset.

So as the sun goes down today

we gather in obedience to Jesus’ command,

“Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”

Luke 22:19Doodles076 copyjuno April Part 4

Nisan 10

 

Then they questioned him, saying: “Teacher, when will these things actually be, and what will be the sign when these things are to occur?”

Luke 21:7

One of the most noteworthy things Jesus did during his final week was to answer this question asked him by his apostles.

The reply is lengthy and appears in 3 of the 4 gospels.

Luke 21:1-36

Please consider reading this, not as a story, if you know what I mean, but as real direction and instruction from our loving God.

Nisan 10

Jesus therefore said to them: “The light will be among you a little while longer.

Walk while you have the light, so that darkness does not overpower you;

and he that walks in the darkness does not know where he is going.

While you have the light, exercise faith in the light, in order to become sons of light.”

John 12:20-50

Memorial Invitation Inner

Today is the start of the special Memorial Bible readings in the week leading up to The Lord’s Evening Meal or Last Supper. I read recently that gratitude begins with our thoughts so it’s quite fitting to spend time this week lingering in thought on all the reasons we have to be grateful to our great God, Jehovah and to our Ransomer, Christ Jesus. There’s a wonderful section on our website HERE, Part 1 of the final events in Jesus’ earthly life. This has a summary of  what Jesus did during those last days, with the scripture references.
