Easter: Journey to Jerusalem

Scottish Bible Society logo
March 25, 2015

Scottish Bible Society logoThe Scottish Bible Society has released Journey to Jerusalem, a daily Bible reading resource for churches, families, groups of friends and individuals that encourages us to journey with Jesus through the events leading up to Easter Sunday.

The ten days of readings begin on the Friday before Holy Week with the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. This reading sets the scene for Jesus’ final journey to Jerusalem, which begins on Saturday with his return to Bethany, the scene of that amazing miracle and the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus.

In Matthew’s account, Bethany acts as a base for Jesus and his disciples during the events of Holy Week. It is at Bethany that Jesus is anointed with oil, preparing his body for his death to come. And it is from Bethany that Jesus makes his final journey into Jerusalem that will lead to his death and resurrection.
