MEMORIAL ARTICLES

     

     The only event in Jesus’ entire earthly career that he commanded we commemorate is the Memorial of his death.  Jehovah’s Witnesses commemorate this event annually on Nisan 14 according to one of the Jewish calendars. However, Christians are not limited to annual commemorations.  We can do so ‘as often as’ we like. (1 Corinthians 11:26)

     The articles here offer encouragement and practical suggestions on why, how and when to commemorate the event.  It is our hope that all mankind, not just Jehovah’s Witnesses, all join in setting aside at least one day a year to honor our Lord of Lord and King of Kings by doing the one thing he requested of us.
