Understanding Holy Week

Lexi Fromm

We’ve reached that time of the year where we get to celebrate the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made for us. Yes, arguable, this sacrifice should be celebrated daily but Holy Week is the special time that we get to celebrate Jesus’ victory over sin and death. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday.

Here’s a brief breakdown of the important events taking place during Holy Week:

Palm Sunday kicks off Holy Week and celebrates Jesus’ triumphant entry to Jerusalem.

Holy Week is commonly defined as the week leading up to Easter.

Maundy Thursday commemorates the foot washing and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles.

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and His death at Calvary.

Holy Saturday commemorates Jesus’ body resting in the tomb.

Easter Sunday celebrates the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and His victory over sin and death.
