“I found my cross. Have you found yours?”
I am Barabbas. Every man is. Murderer, thief, criminal, insurrectionist, lawbreaker, rioter. Justly imprisoned, rightly condemned, freed from punishment by a substitute who died in my place.

Today as yesterday and tomorrow as today, Jesus is the answer to the deepest questions of life.
Here’s the whole Bible presented as a drama in six acts, starting with creation and ending with the Second Coming of Christ.
You find out what you really believe when others mistreat you. Sometimes the real test of your faith is what you don’t do.
It doesn’t take deep faith or total understanding in order to be transformed. All it takes is faith that believes the words of Jesus even when you aren’t sure of anything else.
