The scripture lessons for this service begin a turn to hope even in the midst of Lent. The letter to the Hebrews refers to the appointment of Jesus as high priest under the order of Melchizedek. The name has its root in two Hebrew words, “melech” (king) and “tzedek” (righteous)—king of righteousness. In John’s gospel, Jesus speaks of the importance of death in birthing new life, using an example of a single grain that bears fruit. He tells his disciples they must lose their lives in order to find eternal life
