If you knew you only had one week left to live, how would you spend it? What would you do?
Most people know that Jesus celebrated the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, died on Good Friday, and lay dead in the tomb on Holy Saturday. But what about the other days of Holy Week? What did Jesus choose to say and do on the last seven days of his life?
In these riveting presentations, Dr. Brant Pitre takes his knowledge of the Jewish roots of Christianity and uses it to unveil the mysteries of the most sacred and solemn week of the entire year: "Holy Week." In these two presentations, you will discover:
1. Palm Sunday: Why did Jesus ride into Jerusalem on a donkey?
2-3. Holy Monday-Tuesday: Why did Jesus curse the fig tree on holy Monday?
4. Spy Wednesday: What is the hidden meaning to Judas' betrayal of Jesus? And why is this day called "Spy Wednesday"?
5. Holy Thursday: How exactly did the disciples prepare the Passover for Jesus?
6. Good Friday: What is the meaning of the blood and water that flowed from Jesus' side?
7. Holy Saturday: Why did Jesus rest in the tomb? Where did Jesus' soul go on Holy Saturday?
8. Easter Sunday: Why did Jesus rise on the "first day of the week"?
If you're looking to get more out of the season of Lent this year and to truly enter into the mystery of Holy Week with Jesus, then this Bible study is for you.
Love it. I will view and study Dr.Pitre's insights on Holy Week over and over again. I know that it will enrich my understanding of the Pascal Mystery .
Dr. Pitre opens up the scriptures in a profound and beautiful way. Always knowledgeable, always fun, always deep and respectful. This is a beautiful way to walk through the biblical significance of Holy Week and get so much more out of our most holy days. Highly recommend it.
This is a great lesson on the life of Jesus in the week leading to the cross. Dr. Pitre breaks down each day helping you to understand what Jesus was doing each day of his Passover week and what it meant. This is a great bible study to go through during Lent. I highly recommend this.
All your publications are so full of teaching.that the average person can understand and increase there knowledge so we can go into all the world and make disciples.
This is an important resource of faithful Catholic interpretation on the last days of Jesus, as handed down to us in Scriptures. It truly touches both mind and heart. I feel encouraged to go on with my ministry despite many trials. This video is an embrace of intellectual competence and genuine love for our Lord. I am grateful for this.
