Did Jesus really rise from the dead? Isn’t that just a myth that got started by His followers? Maybe they stole the body to make it look like a miracle. Maybe He didn’t really die at all, just got a little woozy and then woke up. Objections to the resurrection are as old as the…

The gooey, green surface of the Bog gurgled and popped, emitting a noxious odor that should have warned careless passersby. But still they jumped in, disregarding the Danger signs posted at short intervals along the banks. Nothing survived that fell into the Bog and nothing existed that could pull them out. Except one. Cries for…

Last Words | With Me | Worst Day

It was the worst day of His life. He’d spent the last three years teaching, healing, comforting, forgiving, and pouring Himself out so that human beings could know His Father.
