This is a service of Tenebrae as found in the United Methodist Church Book of Worship. Tenebrae means “darkness” and this service dates back to the twelfth century. The gospel readings that make up the passion narrative are from John 18:1-19:42. This particular translation is the gift of James H. Charlesworth. While done for an abundance of caution, it was truly an honor for the French family to participate and film this service in their home. From our home to yours, we pray this will be a blessed way to remembers the most terrible day ever. While terrible it held within it’s moments the great victory over God’s enemies, making it the Good Friday.
