Those who attend church know the significance of this weekend.... Our Savior was crucified on Good Friday and was resurrected on the 3rd day which is now known as Easter Sunday.
Many Christian sects have different opinions of how or why this all came about but the fact remains straight from the New Testament itself that this did happen and we need to remember with reverence what our Lord did for us in order to return to our Father In Heaven....
So to mark this Easter week--I am posting what happened each day leading up to our blessed Easter holiday:
Sunday before (April 13, 2014)
The Savior's triumphal entry into Jerusalem:
Second cleansing of the temple
Matthew 21:12-16 Mark 11:15-18
Also Cursing of the barren Fig Trees
Matthew 21: 18-20
Last day of the Lord's public ministry
Judas Iscariot plots against the Savior
Wednesday before--No record of what he did that day....
Jesus washes the Apostle's feet, introduces the Sacrament and goes to the Garden of Gethsemane
Mark 14: 20-25
Luke 22: 40-46
