Events of the Passion Week

Filed under: theology — Tags: , — Steve Knaus @ 1:48 am

Acts 1:3 says that Jesus “presented himself alive to them after his suffering…”. The original term for Jesus’ suffering in the King James version is referred to as His “passion” (Acts 1:3, KJV). Therefore, most Bible teachers refer to the final week of Jesus’ suffering on earth as the “Passion Week”.

It is often difficult to compile the exact chronology of the events that happened during that week. None of the four gospel accounts are a complete biography of Jesus Christ and often time indicators are omitted.

The actual days of many of these events are often debated by Bible scholars. Below is my attempt to show the chronology of the events during the Passion week as we can best understand them.

I have also included links to blog posts about the subject(s) as the posts are available.

 

Sunday – Entry into Jerusalem

 

Monday – Cleansing the Temple

 

Tuesday – Debating the leaders

 

Wednesday – Silent Day

  • Silent day: no recorded activity in scripture. Jesus remains in Bethany as the Jewish leaders prepare for His arrest.

 

Thursday – The Last Supper

 

Friday – The Passover Sacrifice

 

Saturday – The Sabbath

 

Sunday – He is Risen!

A letter from a Christian teen

When I was in elementary school, one of my greatest enjoyments was driving past the high school on my way to violin lessons. Why? Teenagers. To me, a young naive child, teenagers were weird, messed…
