I think the most significant thing about Holy Week is that it fosters a holistic approach to Easter. It is not cheap celebration; it is full priced, high cost joy. It does not just celebrate life. It celebrates new, glorious, unexpected life after the agony of disappointment, betrayal, loss, rejection, and the death of everything we know.
Reading: Easter! Recommended: Mark 14-16; Matthew 26-28; Luke 22-24; John 12-20.
