And is that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John apostles left written his experiences during the days before and after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Thus, this festival takes place during Passover, since the very Passion of Christ coincided with this tradition. Therefore, Christians believe the Messiah as the Passover Lamb spoken of in the book of 'Exodus' to by all the world's sins have been sacrificed.
  3. 3. How did the early Christians celebrated Easter? • late fourth century St. Ambrose spoke of a Triduum Sacrum to refer to the stages of the paschal mystery of Christ, for three days, et passus est, et quievit et resurrexit. • the early Church saw the need for liturgically celebrate this salvific event, through a memorial rite where, in obedience to the express command of the Lord, is sacramentally renew his sacrifice. • Thus, during the early stages of the life of the Church, the Lord's Passover commemorated cyclically, from the Eucharistic assembly convened the first day of the week, day of the Lord's resurrection (dominicus dies) or Sunday. • And soon, just in the second century, began to reserve a particular Sunday of the year to celebrate the saving mystery of Christ. At this point, the birth of the Triduum was only a matter of time when the Church comenzase to relive the mysteries of Christ in historical mode, something that happened for the first time in Jerusalem, where even the memory of topographical framework is retained the events of the Passion and glorification of Christ.
  4. 4. Days of the Holy Week • Holy Week officially begins with Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday prior. • This Sunday the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, where people waited with cheers and clapping, praising his arrival recalls. Hence the tradition of calling "Palm Sunday". • Week continues until Holy Thursday, where the Last Supper Jesus offers his disciples and goes to pray to the Garden of Olives, where he is captured by soldiers who had been paid by Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples. • Good Friday is the day when Jesus is presented to the Attorney Pontius Pilate for him to make judgment to see if I could release and not send kill, because he (Pilate) saw no guilt in Jesus as to sentence . Still, Pilate released Barabbas attending the cries of an angry crowd calling for his release. It is the day when Jesus is crucified. • Holy Saturday is so called because it is the day when Jesus ascends to Heaven (say what goes up is your soul) and is a moment with his Father. Hence to be known as "Gloria", because it is precisely when Jesus ascends to it. • Holy Week ends on Easter Sunday, when Jesus returns to earth appearing to his disciples, and from there, to be anointed to proclaim His Word.
