The Passion: Exploring the final week of Jesus’ life in Mark’s Gospel

The Passion Week of Jesus holds great importance in the Christian faith. It is the last week of Jesus’ life leading up to his crucifixion and resurrection. This week starts with Jesus being welcomed into Jerusalem with crowds waving palm branches and shouting “Hosanna!” This marks the beginning of a series of profound events, such as the Last Supper, the betrayal by Judas, Jesus’ arrest and trial, and finally, his crucifixion and resurrection.
