Bible Readings for Jesus' Last Week

4-19-11  I corrected Sunday's passages which were not correct and added Saturday's reading, which I accidentally left off.

I read somewhere that, in order to celebrate Easter in his spiritual walk, a popular Christian author (I think it was Philip Yancey) read each day of the last week of Jesus' life on earth on the corresponding day of the present Easter week. I am planning on doing it this year. I'm posting the "schedule" for those who'd like to do this as well. You begin reading today, which is Palm Sunday. Scripture passages are from my NIV Study Bible.
