The Holy Sabbath of Holy Week…

March 26, 2016

The Holy Sabbath of Holy Week, or commonly called Holy Saturday or Easter Even.

Anglican Collect: Grant, O Lord, that we are baptized into the death of thy blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, so by continual mortifying our corrupt affections we may be buried with him ; and that through the grave, and gate of death, we many pass to our joyful resurrection ; for his merits who dies, and was buried, and rose again for us, the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen

Indeed for us Christians Holy Saturday or Easter Eve points to the Victory of Christ, both His Death & Resurrection… And now too, He is Ascended! (1 Peter 3: 18-22) Again the Death, Resurrection & Ascension of Christ are ONE whole piece: Jesus is our Cornerstone! “Unto you therefore which believe is the honour… the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner.” (1 Pet. 2: 6-7).

  1. And again, so-called Easter or Resurrection Day, is seen every Sunday or Lord’s Day, i.e. a little Easter! So we Christians are always looking back with, as Paul would say.. “Therefore”! Christ is Risen even now on this Holy Saturday!
