Spy Wednesday

On Wednesday in Holy Week, the tempo certainly increases. This is the day widely known as "Spy Wednesday,” for it was this day that Judas Iscariot, a disciple turned betrayer agreed to show the chief priests where they could easily capture Jesus.

Churches tonight traditionally hold Tenebrae services. We come closer to the cross. We come closer to His agony. We come closer to that time of suffering great pain, something He freely did – FOR US! “He died that we might be forgiven. He died to make us good. That we might go at last to heaven, saved by His precious blood.”
