Good Friday

April 10, 2020 Pastor: Craig Schinnerer Series: Holy Week

Topic: Faith Passage: Isaiah 52:13–53:12, Hebrews 4:14–4:16, Hebrews 5:7–5:9, John 19:17–19:30

"Tenebrae" is Latin for "darkness". The Order of Tenebrae has changed over the centuries, but consists of the gradual extinction of candles, usually seven or sets of seven, bringing the Tenebrae to its dark conclusion. The service usually concludes with the removal of the "Christ Candle", an extended silence, then a loud sound called the "strepitus" (a Latin work used especially for the noise of an earthquake). With our Good Friday Tenebrae, we use the strepitus to point you to Easter.
