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.

Enjoy!

Hey Steve, I happened upon this schnazzy Holy Week video a few years ago. I downloaded it and posted it to my website. Here’s the direct link. Enjoy!

Wow Barbara…
Greg, I love the timeline.
Steve, can’t wait to see and hear you in MI.
Have a resurrected Easter tomorrow everyone.

I noticed that on the timeline with the colored lines that Nicodemus is missing. I realize he is mentioned in only one account of Jesus’ burial, but his role is important too. Probably just an oversight.
