Today with Perry and Shawna, see through the eyes of the people who were closest to the first Easter story. And find the hope that these flawed followers found. Daniel Darling shares about his new book: The Characters of Easter: The Villains, Cowards, and Crooks Who Witnessed History’s Biggest Miracle. Find hope from the flaws of Peter, find out why we should NEVER throw “doubting Thomas” under the bus. Also, Barabbas, the murderer who was released instead of Jesus gets at the heart of the gospel. We are Barabbas. And if you feel like Judas, find out why there’s still hope. And check out why the women who followed Jesus are really the heroes of the Easter story. See your life in the story and be changed!
