The Drama Of The Resurrection
Jesus rose from the dead two thousand years ago, and it is the most important and hopeful event in human and cosmic history. What was that event like? How did it change the lives of those knew Jesus and how has it changed history ever since?
Most of Jesus’ followers had lived with him for three years. They had witnessed the blind regaining sight and the dead given back life. Jesus was the holiest person they had ever known. But then he was killed. God had been put to death. The drama was intense, horrifying, and real. What were their feelings, joys, emotions when they saw him risen? The kingdom had really come. Death had really been destroyed once and for all. Everything was new and exciting. Their work had only begun.
Master storyteller Morton Kesley retells this earth-changing story with candid insight and lucid understanding. Each of the characters comes alive at his telling, helping the drama and the reality to unfold for the reader, calling for a deeper response to the love of God. This book is truly an exceptional way to prepare for and live out the Easter mystery in today’s world.
