Happy Resurrection Day
Dear friends and visitors,
Here’s wishing all a safe and blessed holiday.
This year is special. It really tasks us to think about life. Many of us, worldwide, are ordered to stay at home. There will be no physical church services. That brings us to the reality that the “church” is not a building but the people. We need God in and with us no matter where we are, or where we go.
The following was originally posted in 2016. It doesn’t seem that long since I first saw the movie Risen. It is one of my favorite movies.
Risen is about a Roman Tribune named Clavius who is tasked by Pilot to find the body of the crucified Jesus Christ that is no longer in the tomb, and before the three days predicted that he would rise from the dead.
Clavius sets out to find the followers of Yeshua for them to tell him where they have hidden the body. Instead, Clavius finds more than he anticipated — a man who he ordered killed and saw dead, alive again.
Below is a video interview of Cliff Curtis who played Yeshua in the movie. When asked about his preparations to play the role of Jesus the Christ, Curtis said that he didn’t want to talk about or preach love and peace — he wanted to be love and peace.
Following that video is a scene from the movie that I enjoy, and hope that you will too.
