Today, the day before Easter, perhaps reflect on these texts (it will probably take you 15-20 minutes to read): Matthew 27:1-2, 11-66; Mark 15:1-39; Luke 23:1-55; John 18:28-19:42.
Now reflect silently on what it would mean if you were one of the remaining eleven disciples. How would you feel? What would you think? What would you do next? How could God have allowed you to be so misled concerning the Messiah? Or did he?
After a few minutes of this, read the following: Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-9; Acts 1:6-11.
Ask yourself these questions:
1. How would you feel as a disciple of Christ with all of these events in consideration?
2. What attitudes will you cultivate as a result of reading and thinking about these passages?
3. What will you do as a result of reading and thinking about these passages? What is one small step you can take even today?
