Passion Week--Part 1

This week I am going to present the events of each day of the passion week. I encourage you to read the passages with your family and discuss Jesus' last week. I want to start with a review of the weekend:

Friday: In the evening he arrived in Bethany at the home of Martha, Mary, and Lazarus. Some scholars think this may have occurred on Saturday (John 12:1).

Saturday: In the evening they had dinner in the house of Simon the Leper (Mark 14:3; John 12:2 cf. John 12:12). Mary anointed him with perfume valued approximately at 300 days wages (probably enough to feed about 15,000 adults and their children). (John 12:2-8, Mark 14:3-9, Matt. 26:6-13). Large crowds began to gather because of Jesus and Lazarus (John 12:9)

Sunday: The Triumphal Entry (John 12:12-19; Mark 11:1-11; Matt 21:1-11, 14-17; Luke 19:27-44).
