Reflecting on the last days of Jesus’ life and the miracle of His resurrection…
Jesus entered Jerusalem riding a donkey. The people waved palm branches and shouted, “Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Jesus over-turned the moneychangers’ tables at the temple.
Jesus taught the greatest commandments: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” and “love your neighbor as yourself”.
Mark 12:30, 21
A woman poured expensive perfume over Jesus’ feet and wiped them dry with her hair. Jesus said, “She has done a good and beautiful thing”.
Mark 14:6, 7
During the Last Supper, Jesus served His disciples bread and wine saying, “Take. Eat. This is My body….” And “This is My blood the New covenant, which is being poured out for (on account of) many”
Mark 14:22, 24
Jesus was tried and crucified.
The first day.
The disciples mourned over Jesus’ death.
The second day.
The women visited Jesus’ tomb on the third day to find the stone rolled away. Jesus later appeared to His disciples, assigning them the Great Commission. He was then taken up into heaven to sit at the right hand of God.
I am the resurrection and the life….Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die….
John 11:25, 26
He is risen!
