This Week @ Twin Cities Church - Experiencing the Bible

Hey Everyone,

I don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but I wanted to make you aware. This is especially meaningful to me after our recent experience with 40 Days In The Word. I hope you will watch it, and make sure to tell your friends about it as well. It promises to be a great way to help people see how reliable and impactful the Bible really is.

"The Bible" is an epic five-week, 10-hour television mini-series premiering March 3, 2013 on the History Channel from Emmy Award winning husband and wife team, Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. For two hours each Sunday night millions of viewers will see the Bible come to life in a way never before seen. The final episode of the series will air on Easter Sunday and will feature the death and resurrection of Jesus. To help ensure the accuracy of the mini-series, many Christian scholars served as advisors and hundreds of Christian leaders have given their endorsement (from Outreach Magazine). “It is also a project close to Mr. Burnett’s heart. In the past couple of years the 52-year-old former paratrooper says he has become deeply religious, a transition he credits to Roma Downey, his wife since 2007. ‘It wasn’t until I met Roma that I truly understood my faith and it’s been a dynamic shift for me,’ Mr. Burnett said." – Wall Street Journal

Famed television producer Mark Burnett tackles his projects with passion, but "The Bible" is a special labor of love. The 10-hour, five-part docudrama, which premieres March 3 on the History Channel, will span the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, presenting some of its best-known stories, including Noah’s Ark, the Exodus, Daniel in the lions’ den and the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.

Downey came up with the idea for the mini-series a few years ago. “It is our obligation to tell the stories as written,” he says. “The stories are so brilliant and compelling.” The project will have broad appeal, he says. “If you know the Bible, you’ll enjoy seeing the stories come to life. If you’ve never read the Bible, I think you’ll love the stories,” he says. “There’s a reason the Bible is the most widely read book in the world.” - USA Today

This week we wrap up our “Like Jesus” series by taking a look at an encounter Jesus had with someone who needed the Good News He came to make possible. In this account we’ll all learn from Jesus how simple it really is to share about Him with our friends, loved ones and neighbors.

Seeking Jesus With You,

Pastor Ron
