As Holy Week plays out, the story’s breadth and depth makes it somewhat complex.

Each line in the chart represents a different person or faction that played a major role in the Easter story. Follow the lines to see how these individuals and groups interacted with each other during the events of Holy Week; read the Bible passages associated with each major event to learn about them. See this post for more information about how to read this timeline and what it does and doesn’t show. (This chart is an interpretation, drawn from the different Gospel accounts. There’s room for some interpretation in the timing of some of these events.)
