Jesus knew that he was nearing the end of his life on earth. And like others who reach that stage of life’s journey, there were things he wanted desperately to communicate to those he loved and who would continue on after he was gone. As we as a church family enter into the time of year where we prepare for Good Friday and Easter, let us join Jesus on the road. . . walking beside him. . . listening closely to his critically important final instructions. . . as we travel, the way of the cross.
