Good Friday, “What does this have to do with me 2000 years later?”
Today is the day we remember this Holy Week as the day Jesus was unfairly tried, beaten, humiliated and crucified. A few thoughts and reflections on the significance of this day in history.
First, we obviously don’t know the exact day of the crucifixion but many bible scholars generally agree that it was on a Friday on or near Passover (Nisan 14), during the governorship of Pontius Pilate (who ruled AD 26–36). What is much more significant is what this means to you and I today.
It is interesting that God chose a little lamb to represent his self-sacrifice to the world. Lambs, of all creatures, are completely non-threatening. There is powerful peacemaking symbolism in Christ as the little lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world — who defeats all enemies of God’s Kingdom.
This little non-threatening lamb, represents the patience, kindness, and endless love of God, yet threatens everything: all the establishments, systems, and powers of the world. This is the power of the cross!
