Good Friday Message 2020
"You know, Peter, today so many of us are affected by the suffering that the new coronavirus is causing around the globe. Like the serpent-bitten people in the desert who lifted their eyes to the serpent of bronze that Moses had raised for their healing (Numbers 21), we are looking to Christ crucified and his corona, his crown of thorns, for the healing of the corona-stricken nations”, says Archbishop Dr Antje Jackelén in her message.
A Corona of Thorns
Good Friday message by LWF Vice President for the Nordic countries, Archbishop Dr Antje Jackelén, from Church of Sweden.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed. For you were going astray like sheep, but now you have returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.
— 1 Peter 2:24-25
