At the time of Jesus’ arrest, the gospel writer Luke reports Jesus saying to his captors: “Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me.But this is your hour – when darkness reigns(22:53).’ Throughout Friday and Saturday that darkness reigns in every sense of the

Good Friday

Date 25th March 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Mark 15:33-39

During the crucifixion ‘at the sixth hour darkness came over whole land until the ninth hour.’ Darkness from midday to 3pm? Something ominous and evil is going on here because the darkness cannot readily be accounted for by natural phenomena. How would it feel to be standing there watching events as they unfold and being enveloped

Were you there at My Victory?

Date 20th March 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage 1 Corinthians 15:54-58

Legendary American football coach Vince Lombardi famously said: “winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” The apostle Paul, describing life metaphorically as a race, says that his aim is to win the ‘race’ and not to lose it (Phil 3:12-14; 1 Cor 9:24-27; 2 Tim 4:6-8). Both these famous authors wanted the exact same thing

Were you there at Jesus’ trial?

Date 20th March 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 26:57-67; 27:11-26

Date 13th March 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage John 18:1-11

“It takes some work for us to reclaim for our imaginations the true picture of the arrest of Jesus. Some of you might see in your mind’s eye the richly painted, perfectly posed scene often depicted in classical art. Others of us are stuck with a cardboard and plastic version of what we’ve seen acted

Were You There… (Part 1)

Date 06th March 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Matthew 26:36-46

….when Jesus prayed in the Garden? It is always a temptation for us to minimize the suffering of our Lord. Perhaps that is natural because we were not there to witness it. We tend to view our Saviour as calm, cool, and in control. He had everything planned, didn’t He? Yet, here we read of

Were You There: Is it Me?
