We have been studying the Passion week using this resource:
Two months before the Passover, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. At that point, Jesus as well as Lazarus became marked men. The chief priests and Pharisees wanted to kill both of them. (John 11:18-57)
While Jesus knew he was to die on the cross eventually, this wasn’t the “appointed” time for the Pharisees and Scribes to put him to death. He stayed away from Jerusalem until the time of the Passover.
The road to the resurrection begins six days before Passover. (John 12:1) That would make it Friday and not Sunday, as others suggest.
Each event is listed in the appropriate Gospel, so you can go back and refresh yourself with the story.
