HOPE FOR A BROKEN WORLD.
Easter is the most important Christian holiday and celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It is considered the foundation of the Christian faith and represents hope, new life, and redemption.
And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” And they remembered his words, and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. (Luke 24:5b-9)

“Maundy” comes from a Latin word that means “command”, referring to Jesus’ command to his disciples to love and serve one another, which he demonstrated by washing their feet during the Last Supper. We also trace the theme of the “garden” from the time of Eden through Jesus’ suffering in Gethsemane and the tree of life in the new heaven and earth as told in the Book of Revelation.
Join us throughout the day as Chapel Hill pastors reflect on the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Despite the fact that this was a painful and tragic event, it is considered “good” because it represents the ultimate sacrifice made by Jesus for the forgiveness of humanity’s sins. The term “good” in this context comes from an older English usage of the word, which meant “holy” or “pious.” It is believed that the term “Good Friday” originated from the medieval English phrase “God’s Friday,” which was used to describe the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.
