Holy Week: Monday

Last year we started a new tradition here at ET in preparation for Resurrection Sunday. Again this year we will follow the late Harold Hoehner’s chronological retelling of the events of Holy Week. Note: I’m aware that there are different takes on Hoehner’s chronology but his an excellent summary.

Monday was Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matt. 21:1-9; Mark 11:1-10; Luke 19:28-40; John 12:12-19), His visit to the temple (Matt. 21:10-11; Mark 11:11), and then His return to Bethany. The day of the triumphal entry would be Nisan 10 when the lamb was selected for Passover. Hence, the triumphal entry was the day when Christ presented Himself as Israel’s Paschal lamb.
