Meditations on the Life of Christ

25 ratings
Meditations on the Life of Christ is a devotional resource with contributions from top biblical and theological scholars. Each segment begins with a Scripture passage read aloud, followed by a meditation. Drawn from both Old and New Testaments, each passage has been chosen to focus on a major event in Christ’s life, moving chronologically through his incarnation, birth, baptism and revelation, temptation and suffering, triumphal entry, the Last Supper, crucifixion, resurrection, ascension, and the coming of his Spirit. Accordingly, the collection is keyed to church seasons and holy days, starting with Advent, moving through Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday (celebrating the Last Supper), Good Friday, Easter, Ascension, and Pentecost.
