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.
The best description of Holy Week I’ve ever heard!
The Jewish Roots of Holy Week: The 7 Last Days of Jesus
Brant brings incredible new insights and explains these little details that before seemed confusing and insignificant in a way that gives whole passages new life and much needed context. Now, the curse of the fig tree and the location of Gethsemane, for example, seem not random and esoteric but deeply significant and symbolic. This talk was a rich spiritual blessing for my wife and I during holy week.
I loved this video!! I bought it last year and shared it with a group of friends. We all agreed that it deepened our experience of Holy Week. There were so many things Dr. Pitre talked about that we didn't know. Someone borrowed my copy last year and I couldn't find it. My husband and I were so disappointed because we looked forward to watching it again before Holy Week. So of course I had to buy another one. Dr. Pitre never disappoints!!!
I sent this to my godson who is 15 years old. He sent me a text less than 24 hours after getting it and said it was good. Being able to reach this age group is great. He listened to it from noon to 3pm on Good Friday. It is something he can share with his family and friends and start a discussion.
