Dear Children of God, Greetings to you and gratitude to Almighty God! Happy Holiday to you as we have reached the joyful day of Easter, the day Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has risen from death.

The Power of Resurrection

The rising of Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from the dead is the mark of the salvation of human race. His resurrection means that we believe in His love, sacrifice and redemption to ‎humanity. He rose from the dead by Himself without ‎anybody raising Him. But Christ Himself rose by Himself because He had ‎the power of resurrection in Him and it was not possible for death to capture Him because ‎He had the life in Him. (John 1:4)

The Suffering and Death of Lord Jesus Christ

As we contemplate Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s Passion, we have a tendency to overemphasize the physical suffering and sacrifice Jesus Christ experience because it is material, tangible and easy to understand. He was spat upon, cursed at, whipped, beaten, humiliated, scourged and finally crucified. But overemphasizing the physical suffering leads to undervaluing the enormous spiritual suffering He experienced during those last days.

Holy Passion Week

Passion Week is celebrated in Holy Church in the observation of the sufferings of the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ; it is the week is the week of praises. The path of Lord Jesus’ suffering started since His birth. The prophet Isaiah said, “a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.” (Isaiah 53:3) Lord Jesus was born in a manger because Saint Joseph the righteous and the Holy Virgin Mary were unable to find room on their way to the registration of Census. (Luke 2: 7)

Palm Sunday

Orthodox Christians around the world begin Passion Week with Hosanna; Palm Sunday. In the Gospel of Saint John Lord and Savior Jesus Christ exultant Entrance into ancient Jerusalem is in scripted as, ‘The next day the great crowd that had come for the Feast of Passover heard that Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem. They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord! Blessed is the King of Israel!” Jesus found a young donkey and sat upon it, as it is written, “Do not be afraid, O Daughter of Zion; see, your King is coming, seated on a donkey’s colt.” (Saint John 12:12-15)

“God tests the hearts and minds” (Psalm 7:9)

No one has the ability of examining the heart, read the thought and see the secrets of the soul except God. This attribute is part of His inestimable knowledge and He alone is Infinite. The Holy Bible confirmed that this quality belongs to only God

Nicodemus the Righteous, “A secret disciple of Christ”

Nicodemus was a Pharisee and ruler of the Jews during the Apostasy era, who learned Lord Jesus Christ sermons. This man was a teacher himself but knew that our Lord’s Holy words were the only powerful and true. He use to go Him in the night hour to hear His words seeking to avoid others spotting speaking to Him. He also craved to escape the world of darkness since he saw the light of salvation and life in Christ. Our kind and caring Lord Jesus did not reject but received him with Heavenly instructions. He talked to Nicodemus in a way that encouraged Him to ask questions.
