What is Passion Week?

Passion week also known as Holy Week is the week from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday or Resurrection Sunday. Passion week is named because of the passion where Jesus Christ voluntarily went to the cross to pay for the sins of all mankind. Jesus Christ truly demonstrated His passion for us and the suffering he willingly went through on our behalf.

Passion week begins with the triumphal entry on Palm Sunday where Jesus rode on the back of the colt as prophesied Zechariah 9:9. The four gospels share the biblical account of the memorable events of Passion Week. We should be passionate about our worship to Christ and about sharing God’s love to others.
