For Christians, last week was Holy Week, the most important week of our year. During Holy Week we tell a story starting with Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. We follow him to his Last Supper with his friends, his betrayal, arrest, trial, conviction, execution and burial. It appears that his work is a failure, until Easter Sunday, when his disciples experience the new life of resurrection.
