Palm/Passion Sunday — Mark 14-15 — Reality and Order

Readings:

Isaiah 50:4-9a Psalm 31:9-16 Philippians 2:5-11 Mark 14:1 - 15:47

The account of Jesus' passion and death as recounted by Mark strips away the illusion that this world is simply in need of a little correction.  Jesus' life of grace, shown forth in his ministry, is responded to by the powers of this world with violence.  And yet, that violence is not the end since Jesus comes to redeem all of those who stand in a broken relationship with God, even those who murder him.

Lent 5 Year B — John 12 — Seeing Jesus

Readings

Jeremiah 31:31-34

Psalm 51:1-12

Hebrews 5:5-10

John 12:20-33

Greeks come to see Jesus during the festival of the Passover.  Jesus gives us the proper perspective for what is about to happen.  Seeds bring life only when they fall into the ground and are transformed.  Jesus' death will be the same.  He dies so that fruit will be born in us.
