Welcome to the 12 Voices of Easter!
In Christ's hours of dark sorrow, from His arrest in the garden to His agonizing death on the cross, friends and followers abandoned Him and foes assailed Him. Yet voices of faith and adoration were still heard among the uncelebrated players in the Easter story--a common criminal, a Roman soldier and a weary traveler.
Whether the participants and eyewitnesses to the greatest act of love doubted or believed Jesus, whether they defended or denied Him, none could escape His compassion, kindness or sinless innocence. Each was forced to decide if Jesus was the promised Messiah or a fraud.
The Easter story demands a verdict. Ambivalence toward Jesus, as Pilate learned, is unbelief. Will you join the voices of Mary Magdalene, Cleopas, Thomas and others, and recognize that Jesus is the risen Lord, the Savior of sinful man? Like Peter, you'll discover that Jesus longs to offer you forgiveness and a second chance.
