And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye:
for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here:
for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

- Matthew 28: 5-6  (KJV) 

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   If you are able to hear the midi file playing (as I myself am not), you'll no doubt recognize the strain's of Bach's beloved Passion Chorale, but I've provided you with two sets of lyrics. The first version by LDS poet Karen Lynn Davidson is the one used by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it more closely articulates our doctrines.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 04/02/15:

“This Easter, as you remember the Resurrection and the price paid and the gift given through the Atonement, ponder what the scriptures teach of those sacred events. Your personal witness of their reality will be strengthened. They must be more than principles you memorize. They must be woven into the very fiber of your being as a powerful bulwark against the rising tide of abomination that infects our world.”

- Richard G. Scott
(07 Nov 1928 - 22 Sept 2015)

  Thanks so much, Susan!


From My Friend, Stephen, of AZ - 04/04/15 - "Why Did Jesus Fold the Napkin?":

INTERESTING

Why did Jesus fold the linen burial cloth after His resurrection? I never noticed this....
 
  The Gospel of John (20:7 - KJV) tells us that the napkin, which was placed over the face of Jesus, was not just thrown aside like the grave clothes. The Bible takes an entire verse to tell us that the napkin was neatly folded, and was placed separate from the grave clothes.

Early Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, 'They have taken the Lord's body out of the tomb, and I don't know where they have put him!' Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb to see. The other disciple outran Peter and got there first. He stooped and looked in and saw the linen cloth lying there, but he didn't go in.

Then Simon Peter arrived and went inside. He also noticed the linen wrappings lying there, while the cloth that had covered Jesus' head was folded up and lying to the side.
 
 

Was that important? Absolutely!

Is it really significant? Yes!

In order to understand the significance of the folded napkin, you have to understand a little bit about Hebrew tradition of that day. The folded napkin had to do with the Master and Servant, and every Jewish boy knew this tradition.

When the servant set the dinner table for the master, he made sure that it was exactly the way the master wanted it..

The table was furnished perfectly, and then the servant would wait, just out of sight, until the master had finished eating, and the servant would not dare touch that table, until the master was finished. Now, if the master were done eating, he would rise from the table, wipe his fingers, his mouth, and clean his beard, and would wad up that napkin and toss it onto the table.

The servant would then know to clear the table. For in those days, the wadded napkin meant, 'I'm done'.

But if the master got up from the table, and folded his napkin, and laid it beside his plate, the servant would not dare touch the table, because........... The folded napkin meant, 'I'm coming back!'

HE'S COMING BACK!!!!

   Thank you so much, Stephen!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/15/17:

Two factory workers were talking. The woman said, "I can make the boss give me the day off."

The man asked, "And just how would you do that?"

The woman said, "Just wait and see." She then hung upside down from the ceiling.

The boss came in and demanded, "What are you doing?"

The woman replied, "I'm a light bulb."

The boss then said, "You've been working so much that you've gone crazy. I think you need to take the day off."

The man started to follow her and the boss asked, "Where are you going?"

The man answered, "I'm going home, too. I can't work in the dark."

Passion Chorale

Music: Hans L. Hassler, 1564-1612; harm. by Johann Sebastian Bach, 1685-1750
 

O Savior, Thou Who Wearest a Crown

 

Text: Karen Lynn Davidson (b. 1943)
 

 

O Savior, thou who wearest
A crown of piercing thorn,
The pain thou meekly bearest,
Weigh'd down by grief and scorn.
The soldiers mock and flail thee;
For drink they give thee gall;
Upon the cross they nail thee
To die, O King of all.

No creature is so lowly,
No sinner so depraved,
But feels thy presence holy,
And thru thy love is saved.
Tho craven friends betray thee,
They feel thy love's embrace;
The very foes who slay thee
Have access to thy grace.

Thy sacrifice transcended
The mortal law's demand;
Thy mercy is extended
To ev'ry time and land.
No more can Satan harm us,
Tho long the fight may be,
Nor fear of death alarm us;
We live, O Lord, thru thee.

What praises can we offer
To thank thee, Lord most high?
In our place thou didst suffer;
In our place thou didst die,
By heaven's plan appointed,
To ransom us, our King.
O Jesus, the anointed,
To thee our love we bring!

 O Sacred Head Now Wounded

Text: possibly Bernard of Clairvaux (1091–1153)
Translated by Paul Gerhardt, 1656, and James W. Alexander, 1830;


O sacred Head, now wounded,
with grief and shame weighed down,
now scornfully surrounded
with thorns, thine only crown:
how pale thou art with anguish,
with sore abuse and scorn!
How does that visage languish
which once was bright as morn!

What thou, my Lord, has suffered
was all for sinners' gain;
mine, mine was the transgression,
but thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
'Tis I deserve thy place;
look on me with thy favor,
vouchsafe to me thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
to thank thee, dearest friend,
for this thy dying sorrow,
thy pity without end?
O make me thine forever;
and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never
outlive my love for thee.
