Triumphal Entry, Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ
The following section features Bible studies about the Triumphal Entry (Palm Sunday), the crucifixion and death of Christ (Good Friday) and the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Sunday morning. The Triumphal Entry presented Christ as the King of kings. The crucifixion of Christ is when Jesus died as our sacrificial lamb (John 1:29) so that our sins can be forgiven. The resurrection of Jesus confirms that He is God and was a sinless sacrifice (Romans 1:4; 4:25). The result is that by faith in Christ, men and women can have their sins forgiven, escape hell and go to heaven. The death and resurrection is the pinnacle moment in history when our God made it possible for us to live with Him forever (Romans 10:9-11).
Thus says the LORD, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me . . . Jeremiah 9:23-24
