Each Tuesday and Wednesday during Lent, we will share -section by section- the Easter story as recorded in the book of Luke. As you read, we suggest that you follow an abbreviated form of Lectio Divina.
Lectio Divina means “sacred reading” and is an approach to the Scriptures that sets us up to listen for the word of God spoken to us in this present moment. (For a more detailed approach, follow this link.)
As you read, listen for a word or phrase that stands out to you.
Reflect on what God might be saying to you through that word or phrase.
Respond to God. How is my life or my day affected by this word or phrase?
After you have read, rest in God’s presence.

Luke 22.47-53

47 While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, 48 but Jesus asked him, “Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?”

49 When Jesus’ followers saw what was going to happen, they said, “Lord, should we strike with our swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51 But Jesus answered, “No more of this!” And he touched the man’s ear and healed him.

52 Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs? 53 Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour—when darkness reigns.”
