DAY 2: Saturday – The Sabbath
Have you ever seen Fiddler on the Roof? If so, there’s a scene in there that shows the families of the town rushing home to prepare for Sabbath meal. That’s pretty much what Jesus did on Friday. He hurried to get to Bethany, the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus in time for dinner. And He needed to get there by sunset!
Today, of the Holy Week, would have been the final, full Sabbath day for Jesus. It had started sundown Friday evening and would go through sundown Saturday night for the Jews.
Moment to Catch
The Sabbath would be spent completely resting. And so, we don’t find much in the Scriptures that tell us about what He did that day.
With that, it’s interesting to note, this was the last day Jesus would have to really, really “rest”. But something tells me He spent the entire day teaching…and probably eating. 🙂
Thot for today:
Jesus rested on the Sabbath…do you?
Join us tomorrow, as we follow in His steps…
