The Last Week

I read somewhere that, in order to celebrate Easter in his spiritual walk, a popular Christian author (can't remember who) read each day of the last week of Jesus' life on earth on the corresponding day of the present Easter week. God brought this to my mind this morning, so I thought I'd share the Scripture passages from my NIV Study Bible in case others may want to do this as well.
