Christianity is at root not a philosophy, a helpful worldview, a motivational way of life, or even technically a religion. At its core, Christianity is about a set of events that actually happened in real life, a part of history. In particular, these events happened to Jesus. In this Lenten series, we are looking at what Christians call Holy Week, the most important week in history, and the final week of Jesus’ life on earth. But we are not looking at Holy Week as Christians traditionally celebrate Holy Week, pressed into the literal week leading up to Easter. We are rolling Holy Week back into the entire 40-day season of Lent. What we will be doing is looking at selected texts from Matthew, Mark, Luke and John as if they are the only source materials we have. The aim of the series is for hearers to be changed by Jesus' own life. People are changed when they rub up against another person's life very closely, and we want to be changed by rubbing up against Jesus' life during the final days of his life, the week that changed the world.
