“And Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour was already late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve” (Mark 11:11 NKJV).

And so ended the first day of Passion Week, Palm Sunday, 33 AD. After a very eventful day, Jesus and the Twelve spent the evening in Bethany, no doubt at the home of Lazarus, Martha and Mary. The Bible offers more detail about this week, than any other week since the week of creation recorded in Genesis.

The Bible zooms in on these two weeks for a day by day account. In the first week, all is created good, yet man falls into sin. In the second week, all has fallen into sin, yet is redeemed by Christ’s death and resurrection!
