427- Rome 7: Easter’s 25th Anniversary

“Do you know anything about Easter’s 25th Anniversary? It’s ok if you don’t.

In today’s podcast and post we reconstruct the historical context of Paul visiting Rome twenty-five years after Jesus’ death and resurrection. The Roman church is nothing like churches today, and the attraction of Easter wasn’t candy or bunnies, it was violence and incarceration. 

Join me now as we strip away the floof and fizzle of our modern Easter Evangelical Extravaganzas, and stare directly into the message that made the religious mind so angry that it would cost Paul his own head.
