Headline read, March, 29, 33 AD,  “Wanted Man Brought into Jerusalem on a Donkey receives Royal Welcome,  Sermon by Pastor Richard Daughtridge

 John 11:53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death.

Psalm 118:24-26 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. [25] Save now, I

beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity. [26] Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the Lord: we have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

Friday before his death. March 27

 On Friday they then arrived at Bethany, a little village just east of Jerusalem. The chief priests and pharisees hoped that Jesus would come to the feast, and had laid plans to arrest Him (Jn. 11:55-12:1). Friday Evening–Six days before the Passover, Mary (sister of Lazarus)

anoints Jesus’ feet with costly perfume (John 12:2-11).

 

Saturday before his death. March 28

Jesus keeps the Sabbath in the traditional fashion with His friends.

 

Sunday before his death March 29

Jesus rides triumphantly into Jerusalem on a donkey fulfilling an ancient

prophecy (Zech. 9:9). The people welcome Him with “Hosanna” and the

words of Psalm 118:25-26.

Monday before his death. March 30

 Cleansing of the Temple (Mt.21; Mk.11; Lk.19).

On this day Jesus returns to Jerusalem (He spends each night in Bethany). On

the way He curses the fig-tree, a highly symbolic act. He then enters the

Temple and chases out the corrupt money-changers. This shows His Messianic

authority (My Father’s House) and fulfills another prophecy that implies the

Messiah will appear there suddenly and take possession of it. (See Mal. 3:1).

They then return to Bethany. On the way home they see the withered fig-tree.

Tuesday before his death. March 31

Jesus stops at the Mount of Olives overlooking the temple, and gives the Olivet Discourse.

On this day Jesus personally confronts the authorities and defends His claims

to be the Messiah.

Wednesday before his death. April 1

The Silent Day. After an exhausting day of controversy, Jesus more than likely spends this day

resting and visiting with His intimate friends.

Thursday before his death. April 2

On this day (and perhaps on the previous day) preparation is made for the Passover. Judas may have also utilized this time for his betrayal (Matt.26:1-5; 14-16; 17-19).

The Passover is celebrated on Thursday evening (Friday by Jewish reckoning) in an upper room. Tradition has it that it was owned by Mark’s parents. At the end of the Jewish feast, Jesus institutes the Last Supper (Matt. 14:12-26; Lk. 22:17-23). Sometime in the evening, after the Passover, Jesus and His disciples leave the Upper Room and go to Gethsemane, a place near the Mt. of Olives where it was a custom for Jesus to Pray (Matt. 26:36-460).

Friday when Jesus died. April 3

He was crucified between two thieves
