Day 1: Psalm Sunday He rose into Jerusalem on a donkey. This was His triumphal entry signifying that His earthly mission was almost complete. He would have to lay down His life for the sins of the world on Calvaryâ€™s cross.
Prophecy was being fulfilled as prophesied in Zechariah 9:9, which states, Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion! Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your king comes to you, righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey."
Day 2: Jesus cleanses Temple of the money changers as the Temple had become a place of corruption. He began overturning their tables and clearing the Temple, saying, "The Scriptures declare, 'My Temple will be a house of prayer,' but you have turned it into a den of thieves" (Luke 19:46).
Day 3: On Tuesday morning, Jesus and His disciples were returning to Jerusalem and on their way, they encountered a withered fig tree. Jesus used this opportunity as a teachable moment to teach on faith. Meanwhile, back in the Temple, the religious leaders were plotting an ambush because they felt that Jesus had no spiritual authority to do what He did. Jesus is all-knowing knew of their intentions and evaded them and pronounced judgment upon them using this scripture; Blind guides! For you are like whitewashed tombsâ€”beautiful on the outside but filled on the inside with dead people's bones and all sorts of impurity. Outwardly you look like righteous people, but inwardly your hearts are filled with hypocrisy and lawlessness...Snakes! Sons of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of hell?" (Matthew 23:24-33). It was Tuesday evening when Jesus and His disciples went to the Mount of Olives. This is where He gave His Olivet Discourse where he spoke of the end times and His second coming. It is also noted that this was the day that Judah Iscariot negotiated Jesusâ€™ betrayal with the Sanhedrin (Matthew 24:14-16).
Day 4: Is Holy Wednesday: He and His disciples spent the day resting anticipating the Passover.
Day 5: This is referred to as Maundy Thursday; the Passover and Lordâ€™s Supper took place.
Peter and John were sent ahead to the Upper Room in Jerusalem to make preparation for the meal. Jesus uttered these words; "I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins. For I tell you now that I won't eat this meal again until its meaning is fulfilled in the Kingdom of God." (Luke 22:15-16, NLT). Other scriptures that record this event are Matthew 26:17â€“75, Mark 14:12-72, Luke 22:7-62, and John 13:1-38.
Day 6: Jesusâ€™ Trial, Crucifixion, Death, Burial what is known as Good Friday. Good Friday or Crucifixion is the most written, preached and talked about the day of Jesusâ€™ activities from Psalm Sunday until now because of the excruciating pain and suffering our Lord endured from 9 AM to 3 PM that day. He spoke His famous last words that are recorded in Matthew 27:1-62, Mark 15:1-47, Luke 22:63-23:56, and John 18:28-19:37.
Day 7: Jesus stayed in a borrowed Tomb where He was guarded by Roman soldiers. Saturday was the Jewish Sabbath, and when it ended at 6 PM His body was ceremonially treated for burial with spices purchased by Nicodemus. John 19:39-40 supports this action by stating, And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred-pound weight. Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
Day 8: Resurrection Sunday: Our Lord and Savior Jesus rose from the dead with all power in His hands. When the ladies (Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Salome, and Mary the mother of James) arrived at the tomb Jesus was already gone for He has risen as He said He would. An angel has to speak to them calming their fears that someone had stolen Jesusâ€™ body. That wasnâ€™t the case, He has risen.
All believers died with Christ on Friday, and rose with Him on Sunday morning to a new life; one of righteousness.
