Episode 18: How to Stop Shrinking Jesus’ Death

Holy Week is coming up. All too often we have a habit of skipping from Palm Sunday to Good Friday, concluding that the whole point of the week was “Jesus dying for my sins.” The cross is certainly not less than this, but it also so much more.

The days and events leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion frame his sacrificial death in ways that are often overlooked. On this episode we dive into each day of Holy Week and unpack what they contribute to the overall meaning of Jesus’ death and resurrection.

As so often happens with the Bible, when we read big, read in context, and make connections, the meanings and takeaways we’re used to are transformed into something bigger and more beautiful than we ever anticipated.
