If you are just joining us today, be sure you read yesterday’s post in order to understand what we’ve been up to this weekend. For the rest of you, welcome back!
Today, Saturday, would have been the Sabbath for Jesus. It started sundown Friday evening and would go through sundown Saturday for the Jews. Have you ever seen Fiddler on the Roof? If so, there’s a scene in there that shows the families rushing home to prepare for Sabbath. That’s pretty much what Jesus did on Friday. He hurried to get to Bethany, the home of Mary, Martha and Lazarus. And He needed to get there by sunset!
The next day was 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…
