Every Easter is an Advent: Reflections on the Seventh Signs at Calvary

Jason Micheli

September 22, 2020

We’re all familiar with the Son’s seven last words from the cross— a tree which John in his Gospel tells us is actually his throne. Less familiar to us is how the evangelists also show us the Father, the Living and Loquacious God, speaking on Calvary. The noonday sky puts on mourning clothes as Jesus breathes his last. The velvet rope in the Temple is rent in two. The earth quakes. Like Lazarus, the dead are called out of their tombs. Even the stones cry out. In these seven meditations, Jason Micheli reflects on the signs that occasion the death of Jesus Christ.



"Jason reminds me of me, only younger, smarter, and better looking."

-- Bishop Will Willimon
