Reading through the Passion of Jesus during Holy Week
There are four Gospels. Each Gospel is about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Each Gospel writer puts together their account in a way that emphasizes certain things about Jesus. So while each Gospel is noticeably different in how it reads, all four Gospels share an emphasis on the final week of Jesus’ life, the crucifixion, and resurrection.
Therefore, I could have chosen from any of the four Gospels for our Holy Week reading challenge. Below is a reading schedule from the Gospel of Luke. If you’d like to read from the others Gospels, I’ve also noted where the final week of Jesus’ life picks up in each of the other three Gospels.
Monday- Luke 19:28-48
Tuesday- Luke 20
Wednesday- Luke 21
Thursday- Luke 22
Friday- Luke 23
Saturday- Luke 24
Note: The Passion of Jesus (His final week) can also be read starting in these places: Matthew 21, Mark 11, and John 12.
