Christianity would not exist if the resurrection of Jesus did not happen. His resurrection has made all the difference.
Consider adding a new tradition this year: Why not read each day's events of the Passion Week in chronological order? Gain a fresh perspective on the tension that Jesus' arrival into Jerusalem brought. Revisit our Lord's final lessons to his disciples.
At Bible.org there are two free resources that will help you reflect on the Passion Week leading up to the greatest day on the calendar. Take a minute to look at it. Set up your digital calendar to remind you to begin to read. Share these with others so they, too, can enjoy the Passion Week like never before.
