Holy Saturday: Insights from A Neglected Day in Holy Week
In our journey through Holy Week, we often mark Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, but what about Holy Saturday? Some Christian traditions hold a vigil that anticipates the joy of the resurrection, and there are several interpretations of the meaning of the day in relation to Jesus and his saving work. But what might that first Holy Saturday have been like for the followers of Jesus? This lecture will focus mainly on what we can discern about how they experienced this day between cross and resurrection, and what we might learn from that for our own faith and discipleship.
Presented by Dr. Suzanne McDonald, Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Western Seminary.
