Sunday’s Gospel – April 2, 2017

Sunday’s Gospel – April 2, 2017

Since the Sunday Gospel is the heart of the Gospel Weeklies, an important part of preparing to share the Gospel with children is to read and reflect on it in advance of your class session. The Gospel at Home and the Gospel for All Ages (see Gathering Rituals / Questions) are resources on our website that can help you do this.

April 2, 2017 Fifth Sunday of Lent

Raising Lazarus: John 11:1–45

JohnSunday’s Gospel describes Jesus’ raising of his friend Lazarus from the dead. The story hints at Jesus’ own Resurrection, which we will celebrate at Easter. The raising of Lazarus puts Jesus in danger from his enemies, but he risks his life to be with and to help his friends. (Gospel at Home 4/2/17: English, Spanish)
