Countdown to Resurrecton Sunday


Given that Resurrection Sunday is 3 weeks from today, it might be a good time to be reading from the gospels as you meditate on the Atonement and Resurrection over the next few weeks.

Since we have 21 days until the celebration of the resurrection, and since the Gospel of John has 21 chapters, you could commit to reading a chapter a day!

Following this schedule, you will read about Jesus triumphal entry just a few days before Palm Sunday. And between Palm Sunday and Easter, you will read about the last supper, upper room discourse, Jesus and the disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus’ high priestly prayer, the betrayal, arrest, trial, beating, and Crucifixion. On Good Friday you will read of the empty tomb and on the day before Easter you will read of Jesus showing himself to his disciples and his ascension to glory.
