Holy Week

A Look at the most important week in history

In recognizing the centrality of the events of Holy Week to our faith, we have sought to provide a resource to aid in your study of these events.


Palm Sunday: The Triumphal Entry

At the opening of Holy Week, the Lamb of God enters Jerusalem. The crowds cheer with excitement, referencing Messianic anticipation. Is it real? Are they beginning to recognize who Jesus is, or are they excited about who they want Him to be?

Holy Monday: A Sermon on Judgment

As Monday of Holy Week arrives, we turn to the events in Mark 11:12-19. We will see the unusual miracle of the cursing of the fig tree, which is told in combination with Christ's cleansing of the Temple. Together, these events reveal a surprising and serious message about the judgment of God.

Good Friday of Holy Week focuses on Mark chapter 15. There, we see our Christ, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, journey to Calvary's cross. While looking like indescribable loss, God has actually accomplished the greatest of victories!

Holy Saturday: The Grave

Saturday of Holy Week is generally neglected in the modern church, as we often skip from Friday to Sunday, but it was not always this way. The early church recognized the importance of the death and burial of Jesus.

Easter Sunday: Christ Arose!

Easter Sunday concludes our journey through Holy Week from Mark's Gospel as we celebrate the risen Christ. In Mark 16:1-8, we will see a group of women who plan to anoint a corpse, but instead they learn that it is impossible for death to hold the Lord of Life! Praise the Lord! He is risen; He is risen, indeed!
