Easter Week

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have spent all my adult life learning about the life of Jesus Christ. Each year at Easter, like most Christians my thoughts turn to the Atonement. Central to Christian belief, is that Jesus suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane for our sins, died on the cross and rose from the tomb. These actions paved the way for all to be forgiven and resurrected.

Whilst Latter-day Saints commemorate the events of Easter weekend, there is not so much of an emphasis placed on “Holy Week”. Along with putting a focus on the resurrection rather than the death, in part this may be because there is more than one version of the timeline for the early days of the week. These variations depend upon the traditions of the church you follow. I have decided this year (2022) to write a post for each of the days of Holy Week, based on the most common timeline. It is really as a motivation for me to study and learn more, but I am sharing in the hope it may inspire someone else to do likewise. Below are all the post which will add as they are published.
