Significance of Holy Week

Holy Week is important as it reminds Christians of God’s sacrifice of his son, and God’s love for his people. Christians can learn much about Jesus through the last week of his life. … It celebrates God raising his son Jesus from the dead as well as the destruction of the power of sin and death forever.

During Holy Week, Christians recall the events leading up to Jesus’ death by crucifixion and, according to their faith, his Resurrection. The week includes five days of special significance. The first is Palm Sunday, which commemorates Jesus’ humble entry (on a donkey) into Jerusalem to observe Passover.

In Christianity, Holy Week is the week immediately preceding Easter. It is also the last week of Lent, in the West, – Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday – are all included.
