Discover How Easter Changed the World in Just One Weekend

Easter is one of the most significant holidays in the Christian faith, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The weekend leading up to Easter Sunday is a time of reflection, contemplation, and gratitude. This devotional will explore the events of that weekend, focusing on the scriptural references that tell the story of the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.


The story of Easter is a powerful one, filled with symbolism, sacrifice, and hope. It is a story that has been told for thousands of years, and yet it remains as relevant and impactful today as it did when it was first written. In this devotional, we will take a closer look at the events of the weekend leading up to Easter Sunday, and explore the significance of each moment.

The Triumphal Entry

The weekend began with Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, riding on a donkey while the crowds shouted "Hosanna!" This event is recorded in all four of the Gospels (Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 11:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, John 12:12-19), and it symbolized Jesus' arrival as the long-awaited Messiah.

The Last Supper

On Thursday evening, Jesus gathered with his disciples for the Last Supper, during which he instituted the sacrament of Communion. He also washed his disciples' feet, demonstrating the importance of humility and service. The events of the Last Supper are recorded in Matthew 26:17-30, Mark 14:12-26, Luke 22:7-23, and John 13:1-38.

The Garden of Gethsemane

After the Last Supper, Jesus and his disciples went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. It was here that Jesus was betrayed by Judas and arrested by the authorities. This event is recorded in Matthew 26:36-56, Mark 14:32-52, Luke 22:39-53, and John 18:1-12.

The Trial and Crucifixion

Jesus was brought before the Jewish and Roman authorities for trial, and despite being innocent, he was sentenced to death by crucifixion. He was mocked, beaten, and crucified alongside two thieves. The crucifixion is recorded in Matthew 27:32-56, Mark 15:21-41, Luke 23:26-49, and John 19:16-37.

The Resurrection

On the third day after his crucifixion, Jesus rose from the dead, fulfilling the prophecy and defeating death once and for all. This event is the cornerstone of the Christian faith and is celebrated every Easter Sunday. The resurrection is recorded in Matthew 28:1-10, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-12, and John 20:1-18.


The events of the weekend leading up to Easter Sunday are a powerful reminder of God's love and sacrifice for us. As we reflect on these moments, let us remember the incredible gift of salvation that Jesus has given us through his death and resurrection. May this Easter be a time of renewed faith, hope, and joy for all who believe in him.
