Entry Into Jerusalem



Key:1 – Approximate sequence of events, used in the list following


[1]From the area of the two villages of Bethphage and Bethany, Jesus makes his triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Mt 21:1; Mk 11:1; Lk 19:29; Jn 12:12). Each night he returns to Bethany (Mt 21:17-18; Mk 11:11-12;19; Lk 21:37) 


[2] Jesus concludes his confrontations with the religious establishment, often in Jerusalem and the Temple area.

The plots to arrest and have him killed progress. He describes the end-times and his return; is possibly anointed at this time at Bethany; and Judas Iscariot betrays JESUS.


[3] In the “Upper Room” (Mt 26:17; Mk 14:12; Lk 22:7) Jesus holds the Last Supper (Mt 26:20; Mk 14:17; Lk 22:14) and the apostles receive the bread and wine as his body and blood (Mt 26:26; Mk 14:22; Lk 22:19)

Jesus Washes the Disciples’ Feet. ….12 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? 13 You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you….John 13:1-20 ESV.

…..34 A New Commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. 35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:31-35 ESV.

[4] After the Last Supper, Jesus and his disciples cross the Kidron (or Cedron) Valley just outside Jerusalem, to the western edge of the Mount of Olives (Mt 26:30; Mk 14:26; Lk 22:39; Jn 18:1). There in the Garden of Gethsemane as he prays, the disciples fall asleep (Mt 26:36; Mk 14:32; Lk 22:40) 


[5]Jesus is arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mt 26:47; Mk 14:43; Lk 22:47; Jn 18:3) and taken to the High Priest’s Palace (not the Temple) for questioning (Mt 26:57; Mk 14:53; Lk 22:54; Jn 18:13). He then appears before members of the Council or Sanhedrin (Mt 26:59; Mk 14:55; Lk 22:66)

[6] The members of the Sanhedrin escort Jesus to the Judgement Hall or Praetorium (the Roman governor’s residence, probably in the Antonia Fortress) for interrogation and sentence by Pontius Pilate (Mt 27:2,11; Mk 15:1; Lk 23:1; Jn 18:28)

[7] Pontius Pilate sends Jesus to Herod’s Palace, the Jerusalem residence of the Jewish tetrarch of Galilee and Perea, Herod Antipas, for further questioning (Lk 23:6) 

[8] On being taken back to Pontius Pilate (Luke 22:11) in the Antonia Fortress, Jesus is sentenced to death (Mt 27:26; Mk 15:15; Lk 23:24; Jn 19:16). He is also flogged and tortured 

[9] – Jesus is taken from the Judgement Hall to Golgotha or Calvary – the Place of the Skull (Mt 27:31; Mk 15:20; Lk 23:26; Jn 19:16) where he is crucified (Mt 27:35; Mk 15:24; Lk 23:33; Jn 19:18) 

Place of the Skull – “Golgotha” in Aramaic and Hebrew. “Calvary” = Calvaria, or “skull” in Latin
