The season of Lent is a season for searching the soul. As you study Matthew 26–28, you will search your own soul through the lenses of the people closest to Jesus in his last hours. The last three chapters of Matthew are a juxtaposition of stories.
This seven-session study will address Communion, Jesus' deserters, his submission to the Father, and his crucifixion. While the theme of rejection runs through these chapters in Matthew, there is good news: joy of the resurrection that you can experience with new eyes.
