Justin Taylor has put together a harmony/chronology from the gospels of the week leading up to the resurrection of Christ. This kind of Bible study is valuable, but also takes some careful study and planning. With the help of the ESV Study Bible, Justin has done that work for you. This is a wonderful opportunity to follow with your family the life of Christ during this most significant week of human history. Here is the link to Palm Sunday. You can follow the rest of the week by going back to Justin’s blog each day and clicking on this link. Thanks to Justin for this resource!
