The Passion’s Herod

I remember the day so clearly. It was a Tuesday morning at my high school, and the group of us who had congregated on the small mound in the middle of the open area of the school compound joined hands together and prayed.  We were going to need it.  We’d never heard of anyone doing anything like what we were about to do, and it seemed risky.

The Passion’s Jesus

I was three-and-a-half when I met Jesus.  The image of a church pew, my mother’s face, and the altar are embedded firmly in my mind.  The complete picture has faded over the years, like a well-worn photograph.  And like a photograph, it has sometimes been forgotten, misplaced then later found again in the stack of pictures that is my memory.

The Passion’s Judas and Peter

It seems nearly everyone’s been abuzz with The Passion of the Christ lately.  Discussions on anti-Semitism, levels of violence, and Christian entertainment have never been so prevalent and so provocative.  And I certainly find them interesting.  However, I haven’t yet seen much analysis given to what is actually in the film as it exists.  It seems a great deal of thought has gone into attacking the film on one hand, and a great deal of thought has gone into defending it on the other.

The Passion’s Lamb

I walk down along this dusty trail,
Joints weak and body frail,
To the place it’s said that death abides,
Where the spirit of fear taunts and hides.

The Passion’s Opposition

As you may know, doing any sort of group outreach on the public school campus is fraught with challenges and restriction, as virtually no campus will allow off-campus groups to come and share the Gospel.  But there is a loophole, in that a student-led group that takes the initiative has a greater freedom to share the Gospel.

The Passion’s Pilate

But what is truth?  Pilate was asking a deeper question, the question that anyone in the search of truth is truly asking: “Is there anything about myself and beyond myself that I can know for sure?  If that truth exists, what is it?”

The Passion’s Simon

Just before being forced to carry Christ’s cross in the film The Passion of the Christ, Simon shouts this to the on-looking crowd.  While this protest is not a part of Scripture, it still does say something about how we often view burdens in our lives.

The September Psalm

A bend in the path confounds a stranger,
But its way leadeth the journeyman home.

Water Into Wine

While many might try to paint Christ as only concerned with the spiritual, His involvement here demonstrates a very real awareness of cultural and social matters where His mother is concerned and also in regard to the feast itself.
