Happy Holy Week: Atonement Passover Unleavened Bread And the Resurrection

I’m going to take you through a journey that spans from the streets of Jerusalem, marked by palm branches, to the ancient customs of the people of Akobe (Jacob). That’s going to include understanding not just the Christian Holy Week from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, but also the original Holy Week, which was integrated with the people of Akobe observances of Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Now what is the significance of Palm Sunday? It commemorates the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, an event that ignites the spark of what Christians recognize as Holy Week. This day is met with palm branches and songs, symbols of victory and joy that have echoed through the ages.

But, this isn’t just about the Christian narrative; it’s also about the rich history of the House of Akobe’s tradition. The original Holy Week was deeply intertwined with the celebration of Passover, a remembrance of liberation from slavery and bondage in Egypt, and the subsequent week of unleavened bread, symbolizing purity, sinless living, and the continuation of a journey begun in haste.

Happy Holy Week

These celebrations are more than historical commemorations; they are the heartbeat of the original biblical communities. They are times for reflection, togetherness, and rekindling of faith. In my opinion, recognizing the depth of these practices enriches our understanding of the spiritual landscape shared by many.

As cultures evolve and histories merge, the way that Christians, Bantus, and “Jews” observe these sacred times has naturally diversified. Some might focus on the Palm Sunday to Easter stretch, while others might center their spirituality around Passover and the seven days of unleavened bread that follow.

Choose something that resonates with you, but also acknowledge the shared human quest for spiritual meaning that supports these diverse traditions.

Embracing the Southern African Perspective: The Tabernacle and Atonement Celebration

In Sub-Saharan or Southern Africa, the Holy Week period is marked by vibrant and deeply spiritual traditions that enrich the global history of religious observances. The end of the year harvest celebrations have grand historic and prophetic implications for those Bantu cultures that celebrate it.

The Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacle celebration, specific to this region, stands as a remarkable example of cultural expression and religious devotion. Here, participants construct temporary shelters, symbolizing the transient nature of life and the importance of faith on this earthly journey.

The Atonement is another significant observance that commands attention. It’s a time of introspection, forgiveness, and a communal reaching out to the Divine for reconciliation. While it may differ in practice from other Holy Week rituals worldwide, it shares the common themes of redemption and the yearning for spiritual closeness to the Almighty Creator.

Atonement Passover Unleavened Bread And the Resurrection

Connecting the dots between various observances, it’s clear to see that the fabric of faith and the pursuit of spiritual fulfillment are universal. Whether one is waving palm branches, partaking in an unleavened bread meal, fasting, praying, blowing trumpets, or rejoicing in the Tabernacle, the underlying motives echo each other: seeking divine love, experiencing grace, and finding solace in the Higher Power.

In the end, as we reflect on the different forms of celebration—from the olive groves of Jerusalem to the rolling hills of Southern Africa—the message rings out, crisp and profound. May every person, regardless of the tradition they embrace, find moments of peace and happiness, a sense of grace, and the overwhelming love of the Almighty during this sacred and reflective period.

Love and Respect

So, as we honor these timeless practices, let’s appreciate the rich diversity they bring to our understanding of faith. They urge us to look beyond the surface differences and recognize the shared pursuit of something greater than ourselves, a testament to the boundless capacity of the human spirit to seek connection with the Divine Creator.

We pray for peace and forgiveness of Atonement, the grace of the Passover, and the Resurrection of the Saints, following the Anointed.

May the Eternal Father’s peace be upon you this day and forever. We bind on earth, let it be bound in Heaven.
