What would it have been like to pray with Jesus in the garden? To watch as he was led to his death? To enter a tomb one early Sunday morning and find only a few discarded rags?
When you explore the culture, history, theology, and literature of the Bible, it’s like stepping into the story itself. Suddenly the image flips from black and white to high-definition. You’re reminded that Jesus lived in the real world, died a real death, and really did come back to life.
