In this rotation, we will explore the events that took place during Holy Week. Holy Week covers the last days of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
“Hooray, God bless the one who comes in the name of the Lord", shout the people as Jesus rides into Jerusalem on a donkey. The religious and government leaders did not like hearing this and plotted to kill him. Judas, one of Jesus' own disciples, makes a deal with the leaders to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. Soon it is Passover and Jesus is sharing a meal with his disciples. During the meal Jesus blesses the bread and wine and tells his disciples that the bread and wine are symbols of His body and blood and that when we eat of the bread and drink of the wine we are to remember him. We call this communion or the Last Supper. Soon Jesus leaves for Gethsemane, where he prays. Judas arrives with a crowd, gives Jesus a kiss, and Jesus is arrested.
