Richard Hays on What Is Handed Over

Richard Hays on What Is Handed Over April 13, 2017

Over at ABC Religion & Ethics, Richard Hays has a great Easter reflection: What is Handed Over: Maundy Thursday, Memory and the Gospel.

When we remember the Lord’s death, we suddenly see that Jesus’s act of footwashing, like his self-emptying death on a cross, comes into focus as a revelation of the true character of God. God hands himself over to us and for us. And so the bread and wine that we share this evening invite us to remember – and to hand ourselves over. In so doing, we faithfully proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
