Some churches read a complete gospel passion narrative as part of their Good Friday observance, but even this does not allow any close study of the text. Devotional services at the cross can allow a more detailed reflection, but their purpose is more meditative. John provides a distinctive account of the passion of Jesus. His account of the trial comes within a wider theme of the whole world being on trial before God's son. The study day provides an opportunity to engage with the text at a deeper level.
