What was it that caused his disciples to suffer rejection, prison, beatings and death to share the good news about Jesus?
During his life on earth, Jesus never ruled a kingdom, lived in a palace, led an army or traveled a hundred miles from his home. His life and words, though, have shaped 2000 years of western civilization. Billions have followed him. Honor him, hate him or try to ignore him, but we live in his shadow.
Eyewitnesses told his story after he was gone. His disciples’ message spread across the Mediterranean faster than the wind, changing hearts from Egypt to Asia, Rome, and Spain, within their lifetimes. Today everyone has heard the news, or some clip of it, but distortions hide the true Jesus and muffle his words. Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and modern influences crowd out the living Christ.
Is the story of Jesus dead? Not as long as the words Peter, John, James and the others ring loud and true. To this end, Epistle retells the story through the life of Peter, his disciple, and shares his experience with people across the world.
Epistle returns you to these early days, to the roots of the Christian faith. Find the reasons Peter said that following Jesus made all the difference to him and will in your life too.
