Two Cool Timelines for Holy Week

by Steve Ray on April 5, 2012

There are a lot of things that happened in Holy Week.

Do you know what was done when?, Where Jesus was each day? What the sequence of events were?

These are great tools to accompany you through Holy Week and beyond. Print them out and put them on your refrigerator. Talk about it over dinner with the family. Share it with friends.

The outline timeline was developed by my friend Michael Chamblee. He says it is a “work in progress” so if you have any comments or suggestions, please pass them along.

The Shroud of Turin Ascension Thursday May 2010
by Joe Marmion

To see the face of Christ, to see the wounds he suffered, the wounds of the scourging were particularly visible as dots and dashes all over His body.

shroudNot an I blinded eye
came to read
the silent summation
of your dying
on that Thursday
You ascended.
Shredded flesh on
shredded linen,
The Morse Code
of “I am risen.”
Dying shameful
Buried well.
Joyful crying on a day
of acclamation
with this pilgrim ecclesiae
Confident in a conviction
that nothing can prevail
Not then, not now
not even to the
Gates of Hell
