Passion Monday

QUESTION: Is there a difference between the usage of Holy Monday and Passion Monday?


The term “passion” is used only once in the Scriptures (Acts 1:3, KJV), whereas “holy” (in direct reference to Holy Spirit) is mentioned over 150 times. Passion [Greek 3958] denotes “to experience a sensation or impression, feel, suffer, vex.”

Holy [Greek 40] infers something “sacred, pure, blameless, consecrated.” The usage of both Holy Monday and Passion Monday serve to depict the focus of reverence, while both giving honor to Jesus, who “suffered many things, and [was] rejected,” yet He was “one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, [and] exalted above the heavens” (Mark 8:31; Hebrews 7:26).

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
