The Christmas Story told
by the Gospels is different from the detailed stories told by all four Gospels of
the crucifixion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. The Gospel of Mark begins
with the Baptism of Jesus. The Gospel of John speaks of the meaning of the
entry of Jesus into human history but does not describe His birth. Mathew and
Luke recount the birth of Jesus but do not tell sentimental stories commonly recited
of Ceremonies Ms. Fae Ellington; Chairman Ainsley Henriquez and Mrs. Henriquez

Manley; Mr. Joseph Manley other members of the Manley family, distinguished
ladies and gentlemen all, it is a signal

The Four Unusual Public Actions of Jesus in Holy Week marked the end of His three-and-a-half-year public ministry. Each of these four actions is not usual nor typical of Jesus’s public ministry. However, they are central to who He is and to His purpose in entering history. They form part of what makes Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday the most important eight days in human history. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday and ends with the crucifixion of Jesus the Christ on Good Friday.
