Reactions & People of the Passion
What do you make of a crucified Messiah? As the Bible tells the Passion story of Christ’s last few days, his crucifixion, and his resurrection it names and records Christ’s interactions with a few specific individuals. In this Groundwork series we study the gospel of Matthew to discover the reactions to Jesus and the people he meets on his journey from Palm Sunday to the cross and finally his resurrection Easter morning. As we observe these interactions we will discuss how these individuals help us recognize ourselves in the story, how Jesus challenges our perceptions, and how the glory of our Savior and Lord is revealed.
