“Is the truth just this: that to live without Him is the real death, that to die with Him the only life?” – Frederick Buechner
4 writers (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John)
With 4 different perspectives (tax-collector turned disciple, apprentice to disciple Peter, non-Jewish doctor who interviewed eyewitnesses, fisherman turned disciple)
Wrote Jesus’ story (the 4 Gospels)
For 4 different audiences (Jews, Romans, Greeks, early Christians).
Our script begins That Friday Morning – when Jesus had already been betrayed, denied, falsely accused, physically abused, and affixed to a Roman cross. He was still alive, but only barely.
He – the Way, the Truth, and the Life – literally hung in the balance as hope leaked away with each of His last labored breaths.
The four Gospel writers take us to the cross, the tomb, the Resurrection, and the glorious, joyous Ascension!
