The Journey With Jesus: Holy Week In Jerusalem

During Jesus’ final week in Jerusalem events move quickly. The crowds that cry Hosanna on Palm Sunday, will gather again over the next days to hear Jesus teach in the temple, while at the same time their religious leaders will be plotting his death. On Thursday evening Jesus shares the Passover meal with his disciples, after which he is betrayed and handed over for trial. By Friday it looks like all is over. The crowds that cried Hosanna on Sunday, cry out for his crucifixion and he is killed and laid to rest. On Saturday as Jesus lies dead to the world, the people of God observe the Sabbath…

And then, just when it all appeared to be over, when it looked like death and darkness had triumphed, very early on Sunday morning a new day dawned…
