The crowds welcome Jesus by waving palm branches as he approaches Jerusalem.
During his last meal with his disciples, Jesus blesses the bread and wine and offers them up as a memorial.
Jesus is disturbed from his prayers by Judas. He has brought Roman soldiers with him who will arrest Jesus once Judas has given them a sign. Judas betrays Jesus with a kiss on his cheek.
When Peter is recognised as one of Jesus' friends, he denies it three times, just as Jesus said he would.
Caiaphas questions Jesus and asks him, ``Are you the Son of God?``. When Jesus answers yes, Caiaphas turns him over to Pontius Pilate to be tried by Roman law.
Pontius Pilate asks the crowd to decide which of his two prisoners he should release: Jesus or Barabbas. They choose Barabbas so Jesus is sentenced to death.
Jesus is given a heavy cross to carry and so begins his long journey to Calvary.
The cross is so heavy that Jesus falls under its weight. He will fall three times before he reaches the place where he will finally be crucified.
How typical of Jesus! Although he must be feeling tired, hurt and scared he still finds time to comfort a group of weeping women.
Along with two criminals Jesus is nailed to the cross. One of the criminals asks Jesus to remember him when he comes into his kingdom. Jesus promises that he will be with him in paradise.
After several hours in pain, Jesus is finally ready to die. But before he dies, he asks God to forgive those who have done all these terrible things to him. He says, ``Forgive them, Lord, for they do not know what they have done!``.
Everyone has gone now. Jesus is truly alone. His lifeless body hangs on the cross.
Jesus is taken down from the Cross and placed inside a tomb. It takes 5 soldiers to roll the heavy stone across the entrance.
The Jewish officials are worried that the disciples may steal the body of Jesus and claim that he has risen. Pilate places guards at the tomb to make sure this does not happen.
The guards are scared when they see an angel appear in front of them. They decide to run away.
With a wave of her hand, the stone, which took 5 soldiers to move, gently slides away.
After Passover, Mary Magdalene goes to the tomb to prepare Jesus' body. But when she enters the tomb, she cannot find his body. The tomb is empty. The angel tells her to go to his disciples and tell them that Jesus has risen from the dead.
The disciples do not believe Mary's story about the empty tomb. It is not until Jesus appears before them that they accept that he has truly risen.
``You believe because you have seen me, but happy are those who have not seen me but still believe. Their reward will be great!``
