In our fourth Weekly Focus, based on our Lent course in partnership with Hope, the ending to the story is revealed – Jesus will be handed over to the chief priests and teachers of the law, sentenced to death, killed, but then three days later rise from the dead. The disciples struggled to believe and understand this course of events and the fact that Jesus was starting a new kingdom with very different priorities.

God of surprises, I want to know you. Amen.
‘Jesus called them together. He said, “You know about those who are rulers of the Gentiles. They hold power over their people. Their high officials order them around. Don’t be like that. Instead, anyone who wants to be important among you must be your servant. And anyone who wants to be first must be the slave of everyone. Even the Son of Man did not come to be served. Instead, he came to serve others. He came to give his life as the price for setting many people free.”’
