Morning Reading – Psalm 118:19-26 & Zechariah 9:9

Noon Reading – Matthew 21:1-11 & Luke 19:28-44

Evening Reading – John 12:12-19 & Mark 11:1-11

Quote of the Day – “It is assumed that our Lord was displaying His meekness by riding upon this little donkey. That is not true. This little animal was ridden by kings. In our day it would be like riding into town in a Rolls Royce. The donkey was the animal of peace while the horse was the animal of war. When Jesus came into Jerusalem riding on this little animal of peace, He was offering Himself as King. In spite of the fact that He was doing that, the prophet says that He was humble. That is very important to see.” – Dr. J. Vernon McGee


Monday, March 26, 2018 –  Rejection Monday

Morning Reading – Psalm 2

Noon Reading – Matthew 21:10-17

Evening Reading – Luke 19:45-48 & Mark 11:15-19

Quote of the Day – “If a Gentile visited the temple and saw what the Jews were doing in the name of the true God, he would never want to believe what they taught. The Jews might not have permitted idols of wood and stone in their temple, but there were idols there just the same. The court of the Gentiles should have been a place for praying, but it was instead a place for preying and paying.” – Dr. Warren Wiersbe

Tuesday March 27th, 2018 – Confrontation Tuesday

Morning Reading – Psalm 113 & Mark 11:27-33

Noon Reading – Luke 20:9–21:4

Evening Reading – Matthew 23

Quote of the Day – “By suspending judgment, these religious leaders showed that they really rejected John and Jesus as God’s messengers. Throughout their history most leaders of Israel repeatedly rejected God’s messengers, a point Jesus made in the following parable (Mark 12:1-2).”

– The Bible Knowledge Commentary

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 –  Preparation Wednesday

Morning Reading – Psalm 114 & John 12:20-50

Noon Reading – Matthew 24-25

Evening Reading – Matthew 26:6-16

Quote of the Day – “This incident provides a welcome relief, coming amid the treachery of the priests, the pettiness of the disciples, and the perfidy of Judas. When Jesus was at the house of Simon the leper in Bethany, a woman came in and poured out a flask of very expensive perfume on His head. The costliness of her sacrifice expressed the depth of her devotion for the Lord Jesus, saying, in effect, that there was nothing too good for Him.” – Dr. William McDonald

Thursday, March 29th, 2018 – Maundy Thursday

Morning Reading – Psalm 115 & Matthew 26:17-30

Noon Reading – John 13-17

Evening Reading – Mark 14:12-25

Quote of the Day – “The order of the Passover meal was: 1) drinking a cup of red wine mixed with water (cf. Luke 22:17); 2) the ceremonial washing of hands symbolizing the need for spiritual and moral cleansing; 3) eating the bitter herbs, symbolic of the bondage in Egypt; 4) drinking the second cup of wine, at which time the head of the household explained the meaning of Passover; 5) singing of the Hallel (Pss. 113–118)—at this point they sang the first two; 6) the lamb was brought out, and the head of the household distributed pieces of it with the unleavened bread; 7) drinking the third cup of wine.” – Dr. John MacArthur

Friday, March 30, 2018  – Good Friday

Morning Reading – Psalm 22 and Mark 14:26-72

Noon Reading – Mark 15:1-41 & Matthew 27:1-56

Evening Reading – Luke 22:66-23:56 & John 18:28-19:37

Quote of the Day – “Pilate now subjects Jesus to the physical cruelty and sarcastic taunts of his soldiers, thinking this may satisfy the accusers. While the scourging and the twisted crown of thorns, the purple robe and the shouts of derision are all a mockery of Jesus’ kingship, yet at a deeper level, the kingdom level, He is being proclaimed King. It is part of John’s inspired genius that he makes it clear here that this humiliation in Pilate’s court is Jesus’ hour of glory. He is a King suffering for the salvation of His people.” – Dr. Robert Fredrikson

Saturday, March 31st, 2018 – Silent Saturday

Morning Reading – John 19:38-42 & Matthew 27:57-66

Noon Reading – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Evening Reading – Isaiah 53:1-12

Quote of the Day – “The soldiers who crucified Jesus apparently intended to bury Him with the wicked like the two criminals (John 19:31). However, He was buried with the rich, in the grave of a rich man named Joseph (Matt. 27:57-60).” – The Bible Knowledge Commentary

Sunday, April 1st, 2007 – Resurrection Sunday

Morning Reading – Matthew 28:1-13, Mark 16:1-20 and John 20:1-18

Noon Reading – Luke 24:13-32

Evening Reading – Luke 24: 33-48 & John 20:19-31

Quote of the Day – “We do not know at what time Jesus arose from the dead on the first day of the week, but it must have been very early. The earthquake and the angel (Matt. 28:2-4) opened the tomb, not to let Jesus out but to let the witnesses in. “Come and see, go and tell!” is the Easter mandate for the church. – Dr. Warren Wiersbe
