“Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother”.
Our Lenten Series study will continue from the book Final Words From the Cross by Adam Hamilton. Bob Moore will be teaching chapter 3 entitled “Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother”. The Bible verse is John 19:25-27 Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary, the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
