Today is Good Friday, the day Christians remember Jesus’ death on the cross for our sins. Sunday is Easter, the day we celebrate His resurrection.
The rest of the world spends this season conjecturing about who Jesus is or debating whether or not He ever existed.
Throughout the culture, the story of Easter is seen as having everything to do with personal faith and nothing to do with objective truth. Religion, it’s believed, doesn’t deal with facts, it deals with personal experience and feelings.
John Stonestreet refutes that idea. He says the truth claims that Christianity makes about life and the world are personal but they’re not private. Like the existence of gravity – the effects of which are universal regardless of personal bias or beliefs – the truth claims of Christianity are also universal. Either Jesus rose from the dead, or He didn’t. It’s true whether or not we choose to believe it.
Holy Week is the ideal season to clarify misconceptions about Jesus and about Christianity in our culture today. John Stonestreet is joining us on our radio program today to do just that. He’ll walk us through four events of Holy Week that declare the truth about Jesus’ identity:
- The Triumphal Entry
- The Last Supper
- The Crucifixion
- The Resurrection
John Stonestreet is president of the Chuck Colson Center and co-host of the BreakPoint radio program. We have his books, along with other helpful resources related to marriage, parenting, and faith, available in our online store.
