Lent 2016

47 days
Plan Overview

Lent is the season of repentance and remembrance leading up to Easter Sunday—a time to look long at our sin and look even longer at the cross of Christ. The Lent 2016 Scripture reading plan spans 47 days and includes: a brief explanation of the traditions of Ash Wednesday and Lent; an examination of biblical repentance, fasting, and prayer; a study of God's salvation and mercy in the book of Jonah; a look at the person of Christ as demonstrated by Jesus’ “I AM” statements in the Gospel of John; and a real-time walk through Holy Week, from Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem to His once-for-all victory over the grave.
