Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday with Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem while the people shouted, “Hosanna! Blessed is HE who comes in the name of the Lord!” On Thursday evening of the same week, Jesus would be betrayed by one of HIS own disciples, Judas Iscariot. On Friday afternoon, HE would willingly surrender to crucifixion, a painful death that would satisfy God’s requirement for a sacrifice to pay the penalty for the sin of all mankind. Holy Week culminates on Sunday morning with an empty tomb, as Jesus Christ is resurrected from the dead on Easter Sunday!
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone event within all of Christendom. Jesus Christ’s victory over death is the completion of HIS role as Messiah and Savior for all who would choose to confess sin, repent from a self-serving life-style and to profess Jesus Christ as LORD!
The account of Jesus’ resurrection from the book of Matthew…
Matthew 28:1-7 (NASB)
“1. Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. 4 The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. 5 The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6 He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. 7 Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.'”
