As we head into the Easter weekend and Resurrection Sunday, we are talking today about the resurrection of Jesus from the grave, and what the “old rugged cross” means to the Bride of Christ and to the world who does not know Him.
We’re going to begin with what is becoming a controversial topic these past few weeks. Many of you are watching the History Channel’s docudrama, “The Bible,” produced by actress Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett. Overseeing the content and promoting this show are celebrity pastors Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, Jim Wallis and many others.
When a public relations group from the History Channel contacted our guest to help promote the show, she was able to preview the docudrama and gave them a surprising answer: No! We first told you about Sunny Shell last week when we shared her blog article about how she came to that decision. You can read about it on our site, in a link titled, Something HUGE is missing from the Last Supper!
We have Sunny with us in our first segment. She is a wife, mom and writer and founder of a ministry called Abandoned to Christ over at sunnyshell.org. You can also find her writings at My Second Love: A Proverbs 31 Study. Sunny is a former columnist for Examiner.com with two columns: Christian Worldview and Christian Marriage.
