What is the Passion of Christ

The Passion of Christ refers to the suffering and death of Jesus on the Cross for our sins. Jesus died in order to pay for our sins so that we could be reconciled with God. This was His passion, in other words Jesus came to earth the first time in order to pay for our sins, that was His purpose, and His passion was to see a lost humanity reconciled to God.

The Passion starts in the Garden of Gethsemane and ends with the burial and resurrection of the Jesus from the grave three days later. The Passion of Jesus occurred during what has become known as Holy Week which started with Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem and ended with His burial and resurrection a week later. We celebrate the Passion of Christ today as Easter. Holy week begins the week before Easter and ends on Ester Sunday, also called Resurrection Sunday. Easter commemorates the day Jesus was resurrected and conquered death.
