  Luke 22:7-13; “Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed. 8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. 9 And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? 10 And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. 11 And ye shall say unto the good man of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples? 12 And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready. 13 And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.”

Today we’re finishing up our look at the significant items used during Holy Week on Maundy Thursday by examining the meaning of Communion and the price of Judas’ betrayal.

First and foremost, we pray Mormons will come to know the significance and meaning of Maundy Thursday in its fullest sense.

Maundy is the Latin word for command. Jesus’ simple command was for His disciples to love and serve one another. We see His example of this in the washing of the disciples’ feet, and His sweet love for mankind by giving His life.

If  you’re LDS, we want  you to know…Jesus died for you wholly, and without exception. There’s nothing you’ve done that would prevent Him from providing a total and complete salvation. Likewise, there’s nothing you could do to pay the price for salvation. The price needed for a full salvation is out of your league. Only Jesus can afford that price!

Holy Week:  Do you know what it means?

      I can’t believe Easter is just around the corner!  Spring is my favorite time of year for a few reasons; but ultimately it reminds me of the new life I have in Christ.

     Because of what Jesus has done for all of us, we can start anew.  Just as spring is a new beginning to the world around us, we can have a new beginning in our lives when we ask Jesus into our hearts.  Last year when I was newly out of the LDS Church I didn’t give much thought to Holy Week. As a Mormon, my family celebrated on Easter Sunday, and that was it.  There was no special Sunday service at church and no real acknowledgment of why this is such a special time of year.  As part of my growth as a new Christian and walk with the Lord, I wanted to take the time to learn about Holy Week and share what I learn with all of you.
