Christ Centered Easter week, part one

by - April 14, 2019

I have been thinking a lot lately about Easter. Particularly, what it means. I want it to be more than egg hunts and bunnies. It's really about Christ and celebrating His life and resurrection

You can imagine how delighted I was to find out that the History Channel has a 4 part series about Christ's life. Tomorrow is the final episode. 

"Jesus: His Life” explores the story of Jesus Christ through a unique lens: the people in his life who were closest to him. Each of the eight chapters is told from the perspective of different biblical figures, all of whom played a pivotal role in Jesus’ life including Joseph, John the Baptist, Mary Mother of Jesus, Caiaphas, Judas Iscariot, Pontius Pilate, Mary Magdalene, and Peter.

Each figure takes a turn guiding viewers through the emotional and epic story of the most famous man in history, through his birth, death, and resurrection, all conveyed through a combination of scripted drama and interviews with prominent religious and historical experts. Utilizing some of the world’s most respected Biblical scholars, historians, faith leaders, and theologians, the series weaves together the canonical Gospels, historical sources and cultural context to create a complete portrait of Jesus – the man and the Messiah.  The series finale airs this Monday, April 15 on The History Channel at 8pm ET/PT.

The scriptures have always brought me comfort. I love the Gospels the most because it is Christ speaking to the people. I started reading about His birth at Christmastime and am finishing up this Easter with His resurrection. It has been an amazing experience and I have grown a lot spiritually. One of my favorite verses is Mark 9:23

Not many things in this world last and even less are people who you can truly depend on. This scripture though, this is a solid promise from someone you can always depend on. I hope you take time to watch the 4 part series on the History channel or at least catch the final episode. Let me know what you think!
