On March 29, AD 33, Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem and boldly predicted that he would soon be put to death - executed on a cross, like a common criminal. So began the most important week of the most important person who ever lived. Nearly 2,000 years later, the events that took place during Jesus's last days still reverberate through the ages. Join us as we re-examine and meditate on the history-making, earth-shaking significance of Jesus's arrest, trial, crucifixion, and empty tomb.
On this Good Friday, you will hear a compelling argument for the historicity of Christ's resurrection, even to those who do not accept the Bible as divinely inspired. Can this historical event can be accepted as true? Are there principles that build a belief in Christ's rising from the dead? Can the resurrection truly be believed? Join us for an inspiring conversation.
