Ep 47: Explaining Easter: how can a death 2000 years ago help me live?
There is understandable lack of awareness of the Easter story in our world today. Educated people don't know the difference between Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
In this episode, host Robert Martin speaks with Gillian Asquith (Lecturer at Melbourne School of Theology) where Robert asks if there is anything more boring than being a lecturer in the Bible!
Gillian goes on to explain the meaning of Easter for those who might not know what the story is about. She also shares three good historical reasons to suggest that the events of that first Easter really did happen.
Gillian also demonstrates the power of the Easter story by showing how it helped her overcome a particularly difficult time in her life. A fantastic conversation.
