Want a free Easter study resource? Check out the Church’s new 8-day study plan


Looking for a new, inspiring way to celebrate Holy Week and prepare for Easter Sunday either personally or with your family?

New for Easter 2023, the Church has published a free eight-day Easter study plan online and in the Gospel Library app. The daily plan corresponds with the last days of the Savior’s life, with each day providing study scripture verses, Church leader quotes, and videos to provide daily inspiration and help strengthen faith in Jesus Christ.

In April 2017 general conference, President Russell M. Nelson said, “The more we know about the Savior’s ministry and mission—the more we understand His doctrine and what He did for us—the more we know that He can provide the power that we need for our lives.”

The Church’s eight-day Easter study plan includes videos, scriptures, and music for each day of Holy Week.

According to the Church’s website, this study plan is meant to provide daily inspiration and help you strengthen your faith in Jesus Christ. The plan’s daily devotionals can help focus your thoughts on Christ during the week leading up to Easter, making it easy to follow along and see how the events that happened during the last days of the Savior’s mortal ministry can be relevant to our lives today.

The eight days of study start on Sunday, April 2, and include Palm Sunday; Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem; cleansing the temple; teaching in Jerusalem; rest and miracles, Passover and suffering in the garden; trial, crucifixion, and burial; ministry in the spirit world; and the Resurrection.

Also available is a simplified, shareable, online version of this study plan at, and members are encouraged to look for more material to study in the Easter Come, Follow Me lesson for Sunday, April 6, and the Liahona article “Making Easter a Time to Remember the Savior.”
