Don’t forget that our new group – Spotlight English Club – will be meeting on Wednesday 11th April @ 10:30am in our main hall of the church.
This is an English Conversation Club intended for those whose first language is not English and would like to improve their everyday and conversational English.
During our time together we will listen to a 15 minute recording then chat and talk about what we have heard. There will also be a social aspect to our meetings including refreshments and it is completely FREE OF CHARGE.
The Club will run on Wednesdays 10:30am – 12noon during term time. Please check the events calendar for updates.
Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not hear, for he has risen, as he said. (Matthew 28:1-6 ESV)
And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots. Then they sat down and kept watch over him there. And over his head they put the charge against him, which read, “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.” And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” (Matthew 27:35-37,39,40 ESV)
The Death of Jesus
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit. And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
(Matthew 27:45-47, 50, 51, 54ESV)
