Marking Time on Good Friday – A Lenten Reflection

My work as a pastor has me dealing a lot right now with the chronology and sequence of the last days and even hours of Jesus’ earthly ministry prior to His death.  I put the following image together based on my best analysis and synthesis of the four Gospel narratives’ treatment of Good Friday.  The information in this chart is far from exhaustive, but still fascinating to digest.  I think one of the important aspects of this story that eludes us sometimes, due to a prevailing sense of familiarity, is how these events occurred in real space and time.
