Today is Good Friday–the day of Jesus’ death. You don’t need to read my reflections on this day. You need to get caught up in the story of Scripture itself.

We have broken up the relevant text from Matthew’s Gospel, according to an educated guess as to when during the day the events transpired.

JESUS CRUCIFIED–9 AM

There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

–Matthew 27:34-37
