Good Friday Tenebrae

Good Friday Tenebrae

Tenebrae is the Latin term for “darkness.” Accordingly, darkness is a major theme in this service. Hymns are sung and texts from the Bible are read, but the lights are dimmed to reflect the darkness that covered the land while Jesus suffered on the cross. It is a service that encourages sober contemplation of Jesus’ suffering and death. And yet, this day is not ultimately somber; it is good! By his death, Jesus endured the punishment that was ours, rendering us holy before God.

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday marks the supper Jesus instituted with his disciples on the night before his death. This was intended to be a celebration of the Passover, which observed the rescue of God’s people from Egypt, who were saved from death by painting their doorposts with blood from an unblemished lamb. But at this meal, Jesus established a new covenant (in Latin, “mandatum novum,” which is where we get the term “maundy”). Jesus himself would now become the Passover lamb, giving his holy, unblemished body and blood for the sins of all people.

During this service, we also observe the custom of stripping the altar in solemn preparation for Good Friday.

Palm Sunday

Holy Week begins with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. As foretold in the book of Zechariah, Jesus rides into the city on a donkey, met by adoring crowds who offer him a king’s welcome. Our services mark this event with our own procession of palms. But we also look ahead to the end of Holy Week, when the crowds call for Jesus’ execution, which he suffers on our behalf. We’ll observe Palm Sunday during our regular service times:

Thursday, April 11, 6:30 pm

Sunday, April 14, 8:00 & 10:30 am
