Today we talked about the last supper in Sunday School. I was reminded how I always want to read the scriptures that go along with the Holy Week leading up to Easter. (sometimes called Passoin Week) Typically I have forgotten to start or am not sure when to read on which days. I have broken out the highlights of that week as featured on the Church’s Bible Videos series. I invite you to use them to enhance your reading, or as an alternative if reading just isn’t working out as you had hoped.
