Passover and Resurrection Celebration

Choose a new font size and typeface
“And the angel answered and said unto the women, ‘Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.’” Mat 28:5-6

In honor of the Passover we have created this special page that deals with how our Lord fulfilled the Law and the prophets by his suffering, death and resurrection!

There is a special Passion Week video that will take you on a short tour of the Holy Land sites that are part of the Passion Week recount.

There are audio and written texts including the compelling essay on "The Medical Aspects of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ" by David Terasaka, M.D.

We hope you enjoy this special commemoration.
