Jesus Final Week: THURSDAY

A normal practice of the Passover was to slaughter the sacrificial lamb on the afternoon of 14 Nisan and ate it together at sunset of 15 Nisan.

Jesus’ Final Week: WEDNESDAY

Judas was not actually acting on his own. It was Satan who took charge of the action. Of course we can infer that Judas opened the door to his heart and allowed Satan to come in. Thus, he cannot be exonerated. His action does not render him free from moral responsibility.

Jesus’ Final Week: TUESDAY

These events showed that the conflict between Jesus and the religious leaders was heating up and would eventually lead to his passion and death.

Jesus’ Final Week: Monday

The Cleansing of the Temple displays God's judgment on those who had drifted away from the real purpose of the rituals inside the Temple. Jesus used the lesson of the cursing of the fig tree as an opportunity to build his disciples' faith and encourage them to pray.

On the Way to THE CRUX: Reflections On Jesus’ Journey to the Cross

Week Five: Responding to Jesus and His works This week’s reflection focuses on our response to the presence of Jesus and his works found in Luke 17:11-19:27 NASB. Luke reminds his readers that Jesus “was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing between Samaria and Galilee” (Luke 17:11 NASB). In fact this is the final episode in the travelogue. The next passages talk about Jesus teaching in the Temple inside Jerusalem (Luke 19:45-21:38 NASB).

Week Four: Lost in His Own Home The older brother’s character shows that one does not have to leave his home in order to be lost or be called a prodigal son. A person can be estranged from God even if he is always inside the church. However, everyone is invited to return to God and repent, both the sinners and the clean ones.

On the Way to THE CRUX. Reflections on Jesus’ Journey to the Cross

Week One: Rethinking Our Concept of Being a Neighbor and Our Treatment of Jesus The Lenten season has started. It is a season of forty days, except Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Though the season is not formally observed in many Evangelical or nondenominational churches, it is still, the best season to reflect on Jesus’ journey to the Cross. I invite you to reflect with me in this series entitled “On the Way to THE CRUX. Reflections on Jesus’ Journey to the Cross.”

The Basis for the Title of Jose Rizal’s Noli Me Tangere

The idea of writing a novel came out when Rizal realized that Filipinos were almost an unknown nation in Europe. In Madrid they mistaken to be Chinese. “Street urchins ran after them shouting ‘Chink! Chink!’ And indeed, half in self-mockery, half in defiance, the Filipinos in Madrid referred to one another as ‘slit-eyed Chinese’” (Leon Ma. Guerrero, The First Filipino).

New Year 2019: Forgetting What Lies Behind (Phil. 3:1-16)

“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 3:13 ESV2011)

The Gospel of Luke: Good News to the Underprivileged

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.” - Luke 4:18-19 - (KJV)

Luke, the Evangelist, Physician, Historian and Close Companion

"Through the use of medical jargon Luke gave us a detailed and deeper look at some of the healing miracles in the New Testament." "It is possible that Luke did not desire to be a historian, but his work made him a skilled one." "Luke is a close companion and a friend to Paul especially when he was old and ready to be executed by the Roman government. What an example of a co-worker and a friend who will never leave you even in the darkest of times!"

The Bible, Newspapers and History Books

"Any Serious reader of the Bible must be kept abreast of the latest developments in his surroundings." Furthermore, "One can always look back and find traces of God’s work in history and trust the same God to direct his future."

Experiencing Christ Through The Black Nazarene

"The challenge for the contemporary 'non-Catholic' Christian churches is how to make their liturgy and other church services serve as transmitter (mediator) of Christ's power so that the congregation can have a more tangible and concrete experience of Christ."
