March issue sneak peek: Moments of decision

Stephen Geiger

A moment of decision. As Jesus’ disciples argued about who was the greatest, would the Savior of the world reach his limit and say to these men, “You can’t get along with each other? You have no right to follow me”?

A moment of decision. As Jesus prayed on the Mount of Olives and disciples fell asleep, would that be the last straw—“That’s it. I’m finished with you”?

A moment of decision. As Jesus was led through the compound of the high priest, he saw Peter, who had just denied him three times. Did Jesus shout, “You don’t want to know me? I don’t want to know you”? . . .

On so many occasions the Lord of creation and Savior of humanity interacted with humans who did not comprehend the place of Jesus in the universe. . . .

These are the moments we hear about as we participate in the observance of Lent. This is the drama of the passion readings. These are the last 24 hours of Jesus before his death. At each occasion, we note that Jesus made a decision to continue, to endure the suffering and crucifixion. . . .
