We look through the “Worldly Eyes” of Pilate, the Jewish leaders, and the Roman soldiers. The world looks for power and glory; God’s way is suffering and the cross.
|Our 2020 Lenten Focus|
|When those around Jesus looked at Him during His suffering and death, what did they see? In most cases, people misunderstood who He is and what He was doing. In some cases, by faith, people recognized Him aright. Our Lenten series this year, based on the Gospel according to St. Mark, will examine how Jesus was viewed—and how we should view Him. We will “fix our eyes” on what Jesus has done to save us from our sins by His holy, precious blood and innocent sufferings and death, and celebrate what God sees on account of His work: our justification for His sake.|
