I immediately wanted to post a link to The Big Picture’s Holy Week 2010 pictures. But I had second thoughts after looking at the pictures. Most of the pictures come from traditions that are not biblical and began hundreds of years after the death of Jesus Christ. Especially sad are the traditions in which penitents hurt themselves in order to make up for their sins. This totally misses the point of the cross. Jesus died on the cross precisely because there is nothing we can do to make ourselves acceptable to God. But since I posted Ramadan Pictures, Eid Al-Adha pictures and Christmas pictures I felt compelled to post these as well.
The picture below, however, is a great picture for Holy Week. It reminds us of when the Lord Jesus washed the feet of his disciples (see John 13) and highlights the amazing truth that he came not to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many (Mark 10:45).
