One of the audio books we listened to while driving was a book produced by Focus on the Family called “Luke’s Report.” The setting was around 67 AD in Jerusalem, Paul was imprisoned in Rome and Doctor Luke was sent by Paul to gather eye witnessed accounts of Jesus’s life and death and Resurrection. Doctor Luke plays a Colombo type character, exercising keen apologetics as he does his interviews. His purpose, journal all his findings and bring them to Rome to offer a defense for Paul. Luke goes through each chapter of his Gospel accounts, talking to those whom He healed, cast out evil demons, those He raised from the dead, those who were at the Cross, and those who were eyewitness accounts of His resurrection. As he traveled from village to village, he knew persecution, and saw those who joyfully suffered for the cause of Christ, even sharing stories of those who faced death with no fear! Each witness became more bold, each story built on the other. It was exciting to see building to the 500 eye witnesses of His resurrection!~ Great way to prepare our hearts for Easter.
Funny stuff. You should post the one about "Paul's baptism oopsie"!
Zach, even you have to appreciate the last line about striking a deal to make Peter the Pope!
Yea, that was pretty funny. :)
The skit was thought provoking and "in your face" and probably a good witnessing tool - good material. It's also always interesting to read what "heroes" from history, especially American history, who've been re-packaged as "good people" have to say about Christianity and Jesus Christ. I'm shocked to read what Thomas Jefferson wrote, though I've known he wasn't a Christian.
