Come back to my village this Easter!

Read: Luke 19:28–38

Look at the focal verses: “Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, ‘Why are you untying the colt?’ They replied, ‘The Lord needs it’ ” (Luke 19:32–34 NIV).

Come back to a house in Bethany this Easter!

Read: Matthew 26:6–13 and John 12:1–8

Look at the focal verse: “Then Mary took about a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume; she poured it on Jesus’ feet and wiped his feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume” (John 12:3 NIV).
