Good Friday

Good Friday
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16, KJV)

Bear wants to keep focus on that today, thanking God; so is going to be using the Den's new Bible-reading radio to listen to the Gospel accounts of Jesus headed for the cross, and of the cross itself.

(And she plans on listening to the Resurrection passages on Easter.)

Bear did check around for a good video to play for today, appropriate to Good Friday. And she went through quite a few Passion Plays, Movie Clips, songs about the Cross, etc. . . . (The videos in the Den's Worship Room are more Easter Day type, than Good Friday.) But, although some of the ones she went through were very good, nothing can quite relay the full impact of such an event except the Bible itself. All words, dramatizations, and music just seemed to fall short for Bear, and she found herself longing to hear it straight from the Bible.

For anyone who wants to listen with Bear during the day, in the Den, the Gospel passages are these:
  • Matthew 26 - 27
  • Mark 14 - 15
  • Luke 22 - 23
  • John 13 (14 - 17 covers prayers and discussion with the disciples)
  • John 18 - 19
(And for those who want some more dramatic versions, the Radio does have some Bible versions that are dramatized -- similar to listening to a play or movie -- and also has some with music background, while still using the Bible as their text . . . )

May God lift us above the busyness of the world this day, and draw us all, by His good Spirit, to an ever deepening revelation of the Cross.
