Silent Witnesses

Did you ever wish that you could have been there at Jesus’ passion? Imagine what it would be like:

  • to hear the crowds shout “Hosanna!” as Jesus rode into Jerusalem
  • to smell and taste the feast at the Passover
  • to see Jesus carrying His cross to Golgotha
  • to touch the nail-wounds in Jesus’ hands when He rose from the dead

We cannot do that, but the men and women who were eyewitnesses of these events have left their testimony in the pages of the Gospels. John tells us, “These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31). But there were silent witnesses, too—objects, animals and places that played a part during key moments of Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection. We find them in the pages of the Gospels as well. Though they cannot speak, they can show us something of His love and mercy toward us.

Available to read online or as a podcast beginning February 14, 2018, Silent Witnesses can also be received as an e-mail subscription throughout the Lenten season. The audio version will be available on the daily devotion page beginning February 14, 2018.
