During the last week of the season of Lent, called Holy Week, we join Jesus as he walked through the final stretch toward his death and resurrection. The first Holy Week began with Jesus riding into Jerusalem being praised as king and culminated in Jesus’s earthly body lying in a tomb. This astonishing week of contrast encompasses such a sweeping range of emotion and expression for the believer—from unrestrained praise to deep mourning.
The Week That Changed the World reflects on the footsteps of Jesus as he walked through the last week of his earthly life. The entire life of Jesus was a prelude to the events and teachings during his final week. One half of all four Gospel accounts focus on the final week of Jesus’s ministry. If this week was so important to the Gospel writers, should we not consider its importance for our own lives today? By reflecting upon the events of Holy Week, we gain a greater understanding of the mission of Jesus. It is a thought-provoking, heart-wrenching week, one that leads to the most important event in history: the resurrection of Jesus, our Redeemer and King.
Uplifting and moving, this study invites you to grow deeper in your relationship with God through a better understanding of the last week in the life of Jesus Christ.
