St. Mark 14:12 – 72

Holy Week continued

Holy Thursday is also called Maundy Thursday.

Maundy Thursday is the last day of freedom Jesus had before He was arrested. Jesus ate the Last Supper with His disciples, which is still celebrated in Christian churches as Holy Communion. Jesus washed His disciples' feet to demonstrate humility and love for fellow humans, as well as to bring home His message of helping others to know the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. After the meal, Jesus went to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane, where He stayed late into the night.

Thursday's events are recorded in Matthew 26:17–75, Mark 14:12-72, Luke 22:7-62, and John 13:1-38.

It should be noted that the exact order of events during Holy Week is debated by Bible scholars. This timeline represents an approximate outline of major events as I interpret them. jmw
