In the April 9 issue, LinC explores the significance of Palm Sunday. Though this Sunday reminds us of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem for Passover, it also sets off a turbulent series of events that lead to Jesus’ crucifixion. It’s tempting to skip from the celebration of Palm Sunday to the joy of Easter; but it is important that we experience the full impact of Christ’s arrest, trial, and execution. Key Scriptures are Isaiah 52:13–53:12; Mark 15:21-39; Luke 19:28-40.
In the April 16 issue, LinC looks at Easter, the most important day of the Christian calendar—and a day when we celebrate Christ’s resurrection—from a different perspective. Jesus taught his followers to go out into the world and proclaim the good news that Christ defeated death and paid the price for our sins. But how do we proclaim the truth of Easter while living side-by-side with people of other faiths?
