Justin Taylor provides a helpful reconstruction of the chronology of the events on Good Friday, leading up to the crucifixion of Christ.
As we prepare our hearts this Easter season, meditate on the passages provided in this harmony of the gospel accounts.
This year Good Friday will be on April 6. High Pointe will offer a Good Friday service at 6:00 p.m., but I would encourage all of us to prepare our hearts before then. One helpful way to prepare is to read through John Piper’s Fifty Reasons Why Jesus Came to Die. It’s available in a free PDF.
If you are in Austin and you don’t attend church, we would also invite you to our Easter Sunday service at 10:30 a.m.
The book of Exodus ends with the glory of the Lord filling the tabernacle. Leviticus begins with “And the Lord called Moses and spoke to him from the tent of meeting.” Now that the Lord had filled the place of His presence, the people needed to know how to approach Him. The book of Leviticus answers the question, “How can a sinful and rebellious people approach a holy God?”
We began our study of Leviticus on October 23. Though I had originally planned to be finished with Leviticus by now, the Lord has allowed us to slow down and consider several parts of this book for further application. I pray that you have been as blessed and challenged during this study as I have. I pray that you will faithfully join us as we continue to see God’s answer to the problem of our sin. Below you will see a tentative preaching schedule that will take us through the rest of Leviticus. I am providing this schedule to help you look ahead and prepare yourself for our Sunday morning gatherings.
As you will also note below, I have already begun preparing for our next study in Matthew’s gospel. Feel free to begin working your way through the gospel of Matthew. I think it will be a helpful follow up study to Leviticus as we see how Jesus applied the Law of Moses in His day. Until our study of Matthew, I look forward to growing with you as we finish Leviticus together. May the Lord grant us much grace, and may the Holy Spirit be our teacher
