Holy Week

The Most Important Week in History

Holy Week is a week of Christian Religious Holidays. It begins on Palm Sunday with the triumphal return of Jesus to Jerusalem. The week also includes, Maundy Thursday, the Passover Feast, Good Friday, the day that Jesus was crucified on the cross, and the week ends on Holy Saturday. The next day is Easter Sunday with the resurrection of Jesus, when he arose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven.

In 2017, Holy Week is observed on Sunday April 9th through April 15th.

Holy Week - Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday

I found the chart below on a church bulletin that my parents brought home from Adventure Christian Church in Roseville, CA. I thought it was a great summary of the major events during Holy Week. The chart shows the location of each event, and then any related scripture verses in the 4 Bible Gospel accounts in the New Testament, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
