HOLY WEEK

DAY 1: PALM SUNDAY

“On the Sunday before Jesus’ death, Jesus and the disciples, passed through Bethphage, on their way to Jerusalem to celebrate Passover. Before reaching Bethphage Jesus instructed two of His disciples go enter the town and retrieve a tied donkey and colt for Him. (Matthew 21:1-3) This fulfills the prophecy of Zechariah (Zechariah 1:9) Jesus rides the donkey into Jerusalem where He is greeted by crowds who had thrown their coats down for Jesus to pass over as others waved Palm branches (Palm Sunday tradition in the church) and proclaiming Hosanna to the Son of David…(Matthew 21:46-11)

Jesus arrives at the temple where He promptly removes the money changers proclaiming Jesus arrives at the temple where He promptly removes the money changers proclaiming “it is written,”  He said to them, “My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.”  (Matthew 21:13, NIV) (Prophecy of Jeremiah, Jeremiah 7:11)

After Jesus cleared His house, the temple, of money changers, He healed those who came to the temple to see Him. (Matthew 21:14-16)

 

Jesus and His disciples leave Jerusalem to spend the night in Bethany with Mary and Martha, the sisters of Lazarus, whom Jesus raised from the dead. (Matthew 21:17)
