Wendy: EPIC STORY,

2,000 YEARS IN THE MAKING,

AND IT IS STILL UNFOLDING

TODAY.

MARK BURNETT AND ROMA DOWNEY

REVEAL THE SECRETS BEHIND

THEIR NEW MINI SENIORS,

"A.D., THE BIBLE

CONTINUES."

Wendy: PLUS, THE FINAL

HOURS OF JESUS CHRIST AS

TOLD BY GIL AMELIO.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TODAY

IS MAUNDY THURSDAY.

IT IS LEADING TO EASED

EASTER WEEKEND, A VERY

IMPORTANT TIME, AND THE MOST

IMPORTANT DAY IN THE

CHURCH'S CALENDAR EACH YEAR

IS EASTER AND GOOD FRIDAY,

BUT MAUNDY THURSDAY IS THE

DAY WE CELEBRATE COMMUNION

ON THIS PROGRAM.

WE INVITE YOU TO SHARE THAT

WITH US.

IT WILL BE MY PLEASURE TO

LEAD YOU IN THAT.

SO IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE

JUICE OR WINE, WHATEVER YOU

TAKE FOR COMMUNION, WE'LL

HAVE IT TOGETHER.

WE'VE GOT GIL AMELIO ON THAT

TREMENDOUS HEAD OF CHRIST.

Terry: THROUGH THE EYES

OF THE LATE SCULPTURE, GIL

AMELIO.

SOMETHING WE LOOK FORWARD TO

EACH TIME OF YEAR.

Pat: YOU ASK YOURSELF,

HOW BIG A FOOL IS THE

PRESIDENT GOING TO MAKE

HIMSELF?

HE IS HAVING NEGOTIATIONS

WITH IRAN, AND ALL OF THE

OTHER NEGOTIATORS FROM ALL

OF THE COUNTRIES HAVE WALKED

OUT OF THE TALKS, EXCEPT

POOR, OLD SECRETARY OF STATE

KERRY.

HE IS STAYING ON.

YOU WONDER IF HE LIKES IT

THERE IN GENEVA, OR WHEREVER

THEY'RE HAVING THOSE TALKS.

BUT THEY'RE FRUITLESS.

THEY'RE FRUITLESS.

THERE WAS A GOOD ARTICLE

TODAY IN THE JOURNAL.

IT SAID, IT DOESN'T MATTER.

YOU CAN HAVE ALL OF THE

AGREEMENTS IN THE WORLD, AND

THEY'LL BREAK THEM.

THEY'RE GOING TO BREAK AND

BREAK AND BREAK, AND ALL YOU

CAN DO IS SAY, LET'S HAVE

SOME MORE TALKS.

WE'VE GOT TO GET A DEAL.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS GOT THAT

STORY.

Reporter: WELL PAST THE

DEADLINE THAT HAD BEEN SET

FOR TUESDAY AT MIDNIGHT, IT

REMAINS UNCLEAR WHETHER ANY

KIND OF DEAL WITH IRAN IS

LIKELY OR EVEN POSSIBLE.

THE IRAN FOREIGN MINISTER

ACCUSED THE INTERNATIONAL

COMMUNITY, PARTICULARLY THE

U.S., OF HAVING DEFECTIVE

POLITICAL WILL IN THE

TALKS.

IRAN HAS EXHIBITED THAT

POLITICAL WILL.

IRAN HAS SHOWN ITS READINESS

TO ENGAGE WITH DIGNITY.

IT IS TIME FOR OUR

NEGOTIATING PARTNERS TO

SEIZE THE MOMENT AND USE

THIS OPPORTUNITY, WHICH MAY

NOT BE REPEATED.

Reporter: THE FOREIGN

MINISTERS FROM CHINA,

FRANCE, AND RUSSIA HAVE ALL

LEFT THE TALKS, BUT THE U.S.

REMAINS.

EVEN AFTER REPEATED WARNINGS

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE THAT

IT, TOO, IS PREPARED TO

LEAVE THE TABLE.

IF WE ARE IN A SITUATION

WHERE WE SENSE THAT THE

TALKS HAVE STALLED, THEN,

YES, THE UNITED STATES AND

THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

IS PREPARED TO WALK AWAY.

Reporter: MANY

LAWMAKERS IN CONGRESS ARE

FED UP WITH THE

NEGOTIATIONS, AND THEY'RE

ENCOURAGING THE WHITE HOUSE

TO WALK AWAY AND REAPPLY

PRESSURE ON IRAN WITH TOUGH

NEW SANCTIONS.

REPUBLICAN SENATORS JOHN

McCAIN AND LINDSEY GRAHAM

SAID, "THE TALKS WE IRAN

HAVE CLEARLY FIELD.

FAILED.

AND ANY HOPE THAT IRAN WILL

LEAVE ITS VIOLENCE AND

TERROR IS SIMPLY

DELUSIONAL."

YET DESPITE THE NEGOTIATING

STRATEGY, THE WHITE HOUSE

SAYS AS LONG AS THE TALKS

ARE MAKING PROGRESS, THE

U.S. WON'T LEAVE THEM.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Pat: WHAT IS PROGRESS?

YOU'VE GOT THE HEAD OF THAT

OUTFIT SAYING WE'RE THE

GREAT SATAN.

YOU GO IN TO TALKS WITH

SOMEBODY WHO SAYS WE ARE IN

FAVOR OF THE DESTRUCTION OF

ISRAEL, AND THERE IS NO WAY

WE'LL TAKE THAT OFF THE

TABLE.

WE HAVE NO DEAL WHATEVER SO

FAR DEALING WITH OUR LAUNCH

VEHICLES, WHICH WE'RE

BUILDING AT A FRANTIC PACE,

AND WE'RE GOING TO HOLD YOU

HOSTAGE TO GET ALL OF THE

CONCESSIONS, AND WE'RE OUT

THERE LOOKING LIKE A BUNCH

OF MONKEYS.

YOU WALK AWAY.

YOU CLOSE YOUR BOOKS AND

SAY, IT HAS BEEN NICE,

GENTLEMEN.

WE'LL SEE YOU LATER.

AND THAT NEXT NOISE YOU HEAR

ARE GOING TO BE OUR BOMBERS

OVERHEAD BLOWING UP SOME OF

YOUR INSTALLATIONS.

JOHN BOLTON IS A BRILLIANT

GUY.

AND HE HAS WRITTEN AN

ARTICLE, AND I KIND OF

CONCUR WITH HIM.

THE ONLY WAY YOU'RE GOING TO

GET THOSE PEOPLE PAYING

ATTENTION IS TO BOMB THEM.

WE NEED TO BLOW UP SOME OF

THEIR FACILITIES.

THEY'VE GOT SOMETHING IN

PLACE, AND THEY'VE GOT

SEVERAL OTHERS THEY'RE

GROWING AT A FRANTIC PACE.

AND YOU CAN PUT SANCTIONS ON

THEM, TOO.

THE IRANIANS ARE NOT GOING

TO DO ANYTHING.

THEY'RE ALREADY AT WAR ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING

TO MAKE THEM PAY ATTENTION,

SHOW FORCE.

> HERE AT HOME, A CRITIC

OF OBAMA'S POLICY HAS BEEN

INDICTED BY THE JUSTICE

DEPARTMENT.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS MORE.

Wendy: PAT, NEW JERSEY

DEMOCRAT SENATOR ROBERT

MENENDEZ SAYS THE CHARGES

AGAINST HIM ARE POLITICAL.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

CHARGED HIM WITH 14 COUNTS,

INCLUDING SOME RELATED TO

BRIBERY AND FRAUD.

BUT HE SAYS HE'LL BE

INDICATED.

THE INDICTMENT COULD HURT A

BILL HE CO-AUTHORED IF A

CALL FOR CONGRESSIONAL

APPROVAL OF ANY NUCLEAR DEAL

WITH IRAN.

PAT?

Pat: IT IS PAYBACK

TIME.

THE REGIME, THEY'RE NOT

GOING TO LET ANYBODY

CRITICIZE HIM.

AND HE IS RIGHT, IT IS A

ROADBLOCK.

SO PUT THE ATTACK DOGS ON

HIM AND PUT OUT A 14-COUNT

INDICTMENT AND SEE WHAT

HAPPENS NEXT.

HE'LL SWING IN THE WIND, AND

IT WILL COST HIM MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS, AND HE'LL HAVE TO

SPEND THE NEXT TWO OR THREE

YEARS FIGHTING CHARGES.

AND ULTIMATELY HE WILL BE

VINDICATED, BUT IT WILL BE

TOO LATE.

Wendy: LEGISLATORS OF

INDIANA AND ARKANSAS HAVE

BEEN REWRITING THEIR STATE'S

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM LAWS AFTER

A MEDIA UP ROAR.

SUPPORTERS OF INDIANA ARE

COMING UNDER FIRE.

OWNERS OF A PIZZA PARLOR HAD

TO SHUT DOWN AFTER RECEIVING

THREATENING NOTICE BECAUSE

THEY SERVE GAY COSTUMERS,

BUT WOULDN'T SERVE A

SAME-SEX COUPLE FOR A

WEDDING.

IF THEY WANTED US TO

PROVIDE PIZZAS FOR A

WEDDING, WE WOULD HAVE TO

SAY NO.

Wendy: THE DEFENDERS OF

THE RESTAURANT HAVE STARTED

A GO FUND ME PAGE.

THE NEW RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

LAW GOES INTO EFFECT

JULY 1st.

PAT, SO MUCH FOR THE LIBERAL

INTOLERANCE.

Pat: PIZZAS -- I THINK

YOU MIGHT AS WELL KEEP YOUR

MOUTH SHUT.

I'M NOT SURE I WOULD SERVE

PIZZAS FOR A GAY WEDDING.

MOST GAYS, IF THEY'RE HAVING

A WEDDING, DON'T WANT

PIZZAS.

THEY WANT CAKE.

IT IS THE CAKE-MAKERS WHO

ARE HAVING THE PROBLEM.

LET ME TELL YOU, IT DOESN'T

MATTER WHAT CUSTOMER YOU'VE

GOT, WHAT HOLY THING YOU

WORSHIP ON THE DOOR, THE

GAYS ARE GOING TO GET IT.

THEY'RE GOING TO MAKE YOU

CONFORM TO THEM.

YOU'RE GOING TO SAY, YOU

LIKE ANAL SEX, YOU LIKE ORAL

SEX, YOU LIKE BESTIALITY,

YOU LIKE WHATEVER YOU CAN

THINK OF, AND SOONER OR

LATER YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE

TO CONFORM YOUR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS TO THE GROUP WITH

SOME ABHORRENT THINGS.

WE'VE GOT WHAT IS CALLED

POLYAMERI.

WHAT ABOUT POLYGAMY?

YOU'VE GOT MULTIPLE WIVES.

HOW CAN WE SAY ONE IS

CONSTITUTIONAL AND THE OTHER

IS NOT.

AND WHAT IS SO TERRIBLE

ABOUT HAVING SEX WITH

ANIMALS?

THAT IS GOING TO COME NEXT.

YOU WATCH IT DOWN THE ROAD.

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY,

YOU'RE INTOLERANT.

AND YOU'RE TRYING TO

MITIGATE AGAINST PEOPLE WHO

LIKE DOGS.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOMEBODY

WHO WANTS 10 WIVES, FOUR

WIVES.

WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?

THE MUSLIMS HAVE FOUR

WIVES.

AND THE LATEST THING, WE'VE

KNOWN ABOUT IT IN THE QURAN,

THEY DON'T LIKE

FORNICATION.

THEY'LL STONE PEOPLE FOR

FORNICATING.

AT THE SAME TIME, IF A GUY

SEES A WOMAN AND HE IS

ATTRACTED TO HER AND HE IS

NOT MARRIED TO HER, HE WILL

SAY I WANT TO GET MARRIED TO

YOU.

THEY PERFORM A QUICKIE

CEREMONY, SHE BECOMES HIS

WIFE, AND THEY FORM SEXUAL

ACTS TOGETHER.

WHEN IT IS ALL FINISHED, HE

SAYS, I DIVORCE YOU, I

DIVORCE YOU, I DIVORCE YOU

THREE TIMES, AND THE

MARRIAGE IS TERMINATED.

THAT'S IN THE BOOK.

AND SO THEY GO OFF

SCOT-FREE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, PLEASE

NOTE THAT YOUR DEEPLY HELD

CHRISTIAN RELIVES ARE GOING

BELIEFS ARE GOING TO BE

UNDER ASSAULT.

GET READY FOR IT.

Wendy: PAT, AT LEAST 50

PEOPLE ARE DEAD AND 60

PEOPLE INJURED AT

al-SHABAAB LAUNCHED AN

ATTACK IN EASTERN KENYA

DAY.

THE GUNMEN STORMED THE

CAMPUS, AND THEN TARGETING

CHRISTIANS SPECIFICALLY.

THE GUNMEN STARTED ASKING IF

THOSE HIDING IN THE ROOMS

WERE MUSLIM OR CHRISTIANS.

IF THEY WERE CHRISTIAN, THEY

WERE SHOT ON THE SPOT.

> CALIFORNIA'S GOVERNOR

JERRY BROWN IS ORDERING

MANDATORY EMERGENCY WATER

CUTS THROUGHOUT THE STATE,

DUE TO THE DROUGHT.

THE SIERRA NEVADA IS

EXPERIENCING THE LOWEST

SNOWFALL AMOUNT IN 65

YEARS.

WE ARE STANDING ON DRY

GRASS.

WE SHOULD BE STANDING IN SIX

FEET OF SNOW.

THE IDEA OF YOUR GREEN GRASS

GETTING LOTS OF WATER, THAT

IS GOING TO BE A THING OF

THE PAST.

Wendy: BROWN WANTS TO

CUT THE STATE'S OVERALL

USAGE BY 25%.

OUTDOOR WATER USE IS

RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE THAN

HALF OF MOST RESIDENTIAL

WATER BILLS.

> RUSSIAN THREATENED TO

USE NUCLEAR FORCE FOR IT'S

TAKEOVER OF CRIMEIA.

CRIMEA.

THAT INFORMATION COMES FROM

NOTES MADE AT A MEETING

BETWEEN AMERICAN OFFICIALS

AND RUSSIAN MICHELLE'S.

OFFICIALS.

THE RUSSIANS SAID IF THERE

WAS A MOVE TO TAKE CRIMEA

AWAY FROM RUSSIA AND RETURN

IT TO UKRAINE, RUSSIA WOULD

RESPOND, QUOTE,"FORCEFULLY,

INCLUDING WITH THE USE OF

NUCLEAR FORCE."

AND THE RUSSIANS ALSO

THREATENED POSSIBLE MILITARY

ACTION AGAINST THE BALTIC

STATES, WHICH ARE ALL

MEMBERS OF NATO.

PAT, IS RUSSIA BLUFFING?

Pat: YOU'LL NEVER KNOW

BECAUSE NOBODY IS GOING TO

CALL THE BLUFF.

THERE WAS A TIME WHEN

RICHARD NIXON WAS PRESIDENT

THAT THE CONFRONTATION TOOK

PLACE ABOUT THE MIDDLE EAST,

AND RUSSIA WAS PREPARED TO

GO TO WAR.

AND NIXON -- I THINK IT WAS

IN '73 -- AND NIXON ORDERED

A FULL CALL-UP OF ALL OF OUR

MILITARY FORCES, AND ALL OF

THE NUCLEAR BOMBERS WERE

GIVEN MISSION STATEMENTS AND

WERE PUT IN THE AIR, READY

TO FLY.

AND THE MESSAGE WAS SENT

VERY CLEARLY TO THE PEOPLE

IN THE KREMLIN, IF YOU MESS

WITH US, YOU'RE IN A HEAP OF

TROUBLE.

GUESS WHAT?

THE RUSSIANS BACKED DOWN

BECAUSE THEY KNEW WE WOULD

OBLITERATE THEM.

THE IDEA IS ONE BOMB CAN

OBLITERATE AN ENTIRE CITY.

AND THE RUSSIANS, IN THE OLD

DAYS, NEW THAT.

BUT PUTIN IS PLAYING GAMES

BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE HAS A

WEAK LEADER IN AMERICA WHO

HE CAN BLUFF.

AND SO HE IS LOOKING -- HE'S

TALKING ABOUT THE BALTICS.

AS SURE AS YOU'RE ALIVE,

LITHUANIA, LATHIA, LIST

LISTONIA, THOSE COUNTRIES

WILL BE NEXT.

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A

RUSSIAN POPULARITY, AND

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE YOU

OVER.

IT IS COMING AGAIN, UNLESS

SOMEBODY STANDS IN THE WAY.

PUTIN IS WEAK.

HE HAS WEAK ARMED FORCES.

I CAN'T BELIEVE HE IS SO

CRAZY, HE WANTS TO PUT THE

WORLD INTO A NUCLEAR WAR.

BUT HE CAN THREATEN IT, AND

WE'LL BACK DOWN.

WENDY?

Wendy: PAT, THESE ARE

BUSY DAYS IN JERUSALEM AS

THE CITY MARKS PASSOVER AND

HOLY WEEK, LEADING UP TO

EASTER THIS SUNDAY.

DISCOVERIES AT HARADS PALACE

HAVE CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF

JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN

SCHOLARS ALIKE.

MORE THAN 2,000 YEARS OF

HISTORY ARE REPORTED IN ONE

BUILDING, WHERE PONTIUS

PILOT MAY HAVE CHARGED

JESUS.

Reporter: THE TOWER OF

DAVID STANDS ABOVE THE

WALL.

16 YEARS AGO ARCHEOLOGISTS

FOUND A BUILDING, WHILE

WORKING ON THE TOWER OF

DAVID MUSEUM.

RECORDS ON ITS WALLS GO BACK

EVEN BEFORE THE TIME OF

JESUS AND THE ROMAN GOVERNOR

WHO SENTENCED HIM TO THE

CROSS, PONTIUS PILOT.

FOR YEARS, THE EXPERTS

SUGGESTED THAT PILOT HANDED

DOWN HIS SENTENCE FROM THE

OTHER SIDE OF THE CITY,

WHERE THE ROMAN SOLDIERS

WERE HOUSED.

BUT RECENT EVIDENCE

INDICATES THAT THE

LUXURY-LOVING PILOT WAS MORE

LIKELY TO HAVE PRONOUNCED

JUDGMENT HERE.

THIS ARCHEOLOGIST HELPED

DISCOVERED THE PALACE SITE

IN 1999.

HE IS FA FAMILIAR WITH THE

HISTORY ON THESE WALLS, FROM

HARAD'S TIMES UNTIL THE

BRITISH SAW IT IN THE

1940s.

THOSE ARE THE ONLY

REMAINS FROM HAROD'S

PALACE.

WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED

TO THE SUPER STRUCTURES.

MAYBE IT WAS DESTROYED IN

THE BIG REVOLT.

MAYBE IT WAS DESTROYED BY

THE ROMANS.

MAYBE IT WAS DESTROYED BY

THE CRUSADERS.

WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY

WHERE JESUS WAS TRIED, WHERE

HE HAD HIS INTERVIEW BEFORE

PONTIUS PILOT.

BUT WE KNOW IT IS SOMEWHERE

IN HAROD'S PALACE.

Reporter: DETAILED

PALEGI IS PASTOR OF THE

PALACE CHURCH.

WE KNOW THAT THE PALACE

INHERITED THE GREAT, AND IT

BECAME ROMAN PROPERTY AFTER

PILOT'S DEATH.

AND THEY WOULD COME TO

JERUSALEM HERE, DURING THE

TIME OF PASSOVER, TO OVERSEE

THE SECURITY OF THE CITY

DURING THE FESTIVAL THAT THE

JEWS CALLED "THE FEAST OF

FREEDOM."

IT WAS AT THIS TIME WHERE IF

THERE WAS GOING TO BE

TROUBLE IN JERUSALEM, IT

WOULD BE DURING THE PASSOVER

HOLIDAY.

Reporter: HE SAYS THAT,

IN A WAY, THE TOWER OF DAVID

ENCOMPASSES THE ENTIRE LIFE

STORY OF JESUS.

SCHOLARS HAD BEEN SAYING

FOR HALF A CENTURY THAT THE

LIFE OF JESUS BEGINS AT THE

TOWER OF DAVID, OR WHAT WAS

THEN HAROD'S PALACE.

THAT'S WHEN THE MAGITE COME

TO VISIT KING HARROD.

AND HIS LIFE BEGINS WHEN

PONTIUS PILOT SENTENCES HIM

TO DEATH, PRETTY MUCH IN THE

SAME LOCATION.

Reporter: ISRAELI

ARCHEOLOGIST RENEE SABON IS

STILL STRUCK BY ITS POWER

AND OPULENCE.

YOU PEEL IT, PEEL IT, AND

THEN YOU CRY.

Reporter: PALEGI CALLS

THE TOWER OF DAVID THE BEST

MUSEUM IN THE CITY, AND SAYS

TOURISTS WOULD DO WELL TO

START THEIR JOURNEY HERE.

NOW WE HAVE THE EXTRA

BONUS

OF

HAVING THE VERY

PLACE WHERE JESUS WAS SENT

TO EXECUTION BY PONTIUS

PILOT.

THIS WILL HELP CHRISTIANS

VISUALIZE THOSE MONUMENTAL

EVENTS THAT HAPPENED TO

JESUS THE MESSIAH, JESUS OF

NAZARETH, IN THE LAST WEEK

OF HIS LIFE.

Reporter: AND JUST A

COUPLE OF MILES AWAY, THE

MOUNT OF OLIVES, WHERE

SCRIPTURE SAYS HE'LL COME

AGAIN.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Wendy: THANKS SO MUCH,

JOHN.

FASCINATING.

PAT?

Pat: WHAT A WONDERFUL

PIECE JUST BEFORE EASTER,

THE FACT THEY FOUND HAROD'S

PALACE.

I THINK THIS IS

FASCINATING.

IT IS COMING TO PASS.

IT SEEMS THE EVENTS ARE

CASCADING UPON ONE ANOTHER,

AND THAT'S JUST ONE MORE.

YOU'RE WATCHING "THE 700

CLUB," AND REMEMBER IN A FEW

MOMENTS, WE'RE GOING TO BE

HOLDING HOLY COMMUNION.

FIRST HERE IS SOMETHING.

Terry: COMING UP, "GAME

OF THRONES MEETS THE BIBLE,"

THAT'S HOW MARK BURNETT

DESCRIBES HIS LATEST

SERIES.

IT WAS A TUMULTUOUS AND

BLOODY TIME, AND IN THE

MIDDLE OF IT ARE PEOPLE

SPREADING THE WORD OF

JESUS.

THEY COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED

EVERY DAY.

Terry: PRODUCER MARK

BURNETT AND ROMA DOWNEY TAKE

US BEHIND THE SERIES OF

"A.D.THE BIBLE CONTINUES."

THAT'S NEXT.

Pat: MARK BURNETT AND

ROMA DOWNEY, WHAT FANTASTIC

TELEVISION PRODUCERS.

AND EPIC TELEVISION SERIES

IS NOW DEBUTING ON NBC THIS

EASTER SUNDAY, PRODUCED BY

THOSE GREAT PRODUCERS.

THEIR SERIES

CALLED,, QUOTE,"THE BIBLE,"

DREW MILLIONS TO THE HISTORY

CHANNEL.

EFREM GRAHAM SAT DOWN WITH

THE HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM

FOR A LOOK AT THE SERIES

"A.D. THE BIBLE CONTINUES".

Efrem: THE NEW NETWORK

SERIES, "A.D. THE BIBLE

CONTINUES", PICKS UP WHERE

"THE BIBLE" ENDED, AT THE

DEATH OF RESURRECTION OF

JESUS.

ARE YOU, OR ARE YOU NOT,

THE MESSIAH?

I AM.

AND SOON YOU WILL SEE THE

SON OF MAN SITTING AT THE

RIGHT HAND OF GOD.

[YELLING]

HOW DARE YOU SPEAK HIS

NAME!

S CHARGTHE CHARGE IS

BLASPHEMY.

HE DESERVES TO DIE.

Efrem: ROMA DOWNEY AND

MARK BURNETT ARE THE

PRODUCERS, BRINGING THE

PAGES OF THE BIBLE TO LIFE

FOR TODAY'S VIEWERS.

CLEARLY THE STORY OF THE

BIBLE, IN THE CASE OF A.D.,

THE BIBLE CONTINUES, THE

STORY OF ACTS AND THE

APOSTLES REALLY GRABS PEOPLE

EMOTIONALLY.

AND THEN YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE

IT VERY WELL AND EXECUTE ON

THE PROMISE.

AND, YOU KNOW, THAT'S OUR

JOB.

I GUESS WE'RE PROBABLY

EXPERTS IN MAKING

TELEVISION.

Efrem: THAT WOULD BE AN

UNDERSTATEMENT AS BURNETT IS

THE ENGINE BEHIND HITS LIKE

"SURVIVO "SURVIVOR," "THE

APPRENTICE," "SHARK TANK,"

AND "THE BIBLE MINI

SERIES."

WHEN WE WERE FILMING THE

BIBLE SERIES IN MOR ROC

MOROCCO, WE WISHED WE HAD

MORE THAN 10 HOURS BAY THE

STORIES WERE SO RICH.

AND WE DECIDED THERE WE

WOULD TAKE A DEEPER DIVE

INTO THE BOOK OF ACTS.

Efrem: THIS 12-HOUR

SERIES TAKES AUDIENCES

THROUGH THE FIRST 10

CHAPTERS OF THE BOOK OF

ACTS, FOLLOWING THE

RESURRECTION OF JESUS.

IT IS A PRODUCTION THAT MARK

BURNETT DESCRIBES AT "GAME

OF THRONES" MEETS THE

BIBLE.

THOSE APOSTLES AND THE

GROWING GROUP OF DISCIPLES

COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED AT

ANY MOMENT.

IT WAS A POWER STRUGGLE

BETWEEN THE ROMANS, THE

ZEALOTS, AND IN THE MIDDLE

OF IT WAS THIS GROUP OF THE

FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WHO WERE

SPREADING THE WORD.

THEY COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED

EVERY DAY.

[YELLING]

Efrem: FOLLOWING CHRIST

WASN'T POPULAR AT THAT TIME,

AND WE SEE THE REAL-LIFE

SCRIPT MOVING FROM THE BIBLE

AND HISTORY BOOKS TO TODAY'S

HEADLINES.

HERE WE HAVE, WITH

"A.D.," AND SO MUCH OF THE

STORY IS ABOUT THE

PERSECUTION OF THE EARLY

DISCIPLES.

AND IT IS EASY FOR PEOPLE TO

SAY, OH, THAT HAPPENED 2,000

YEARS AGO, BUT IT IS

HAPPENING TODAY.

AND WE NEED TO STEP UP.

AND WE NEED TO TAKE CARE OF

EACH OTHER.

Efrem: SO IN ADDITION

TO SHINING A LIGHT OF

BIBLICAL PERSECUTION, THIS

HOLLYWOOD HUSBAND AND WIFE

IS HELPING RESCUE, RESTORE,

AND EVENTUALLY RETURN

THOUSANDS OF MIDDLE EAST

CHRISTIANS WHO FLED THEIR

HOMES AT THE HANDS OF THE

ISIS TERROR GROUP.

THEY HAVE STARTED "THE

CRADLE FUND," TO HELP THOSE

CHRISTIANS IN THE CRADLE OF

CHRISTIANITY.

THIS FUND HAS MANAGED TO

BRING 72,000 MIDDLE EASTERN

CHRISTIANS SAFELY THROUGH

THE WINTER.

THERE WERE 500,00,000 WHO

ESCAPED.

IMAGINE ESCAPING AND THEN

FREEZING TO DEATH IN THE

SYRIAN WINTER, IRAQI

WINTER?

BECAUSE OF THE SUCCESS OF

OUR SHOWS, WE HAVE A

SPOTLIGHT THAT LANDS ON US

FROM TIME TO TIME, AND YET

WE'RE JUST THE CATALYST AND

GOD IS THE AUTHOR.

BUT AS THE LIGHT IS SHINING

HERE, WE THOUGHT IT IS AN

OPPORTUNITY TO REFLECT IT

BACK AND TO MAKE SOME NOISE

FOR THE PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS OVERSEAS.

Efrem: THAT NOISE WILL

CONTINUE.

IT WILL BE DEFILED.

YES, AND JERUSALEM WILL

RISE UP, AND THERE WILL BE

WAR.

EXACTLY.

Efrem: AS THIS RARE AND

EPIC TELEVISION SERIES PLAYS

OUT ON THE SCREEN FOR AT

LEAST 12 EP SEEDS.

> EPISODES.

THERE ARE LOTS OF EPIC

SERIES ON TELEVISION, BUT

WE'RE HOPING THIS GOES ON

FOR YEARS.

WE'RE ALREADY IN

ANTICIPATION OF GREAT

RATINGS, SCRIPTING SEASON

TWO.

Efrem: EFREM GRAHAM,

CBN NEWS, NASHVILLE,

TENNESSEE.

JOIN ME!

Terry: IT LOOKS

INCREDIBLE.

WELL, STILL AHEAD, WE INVITE

YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO JOIN

US TODAY FOR A SPECIAL

COMMUNION SERVICE.

BUT, FIRST, THE CRUCIFIXION

FROM AN ARTIST'S

PERSPECTIVE.

STAY TUNED FOR GIL AMELIO'S

"THE FACE OF CHRIST."

THAT'S LATER ON TODAY'S

SHOW.

Wendy: AND WELCOME BACK

TO "THE 700 CLUB."

THE REVEREND ROBERT SCHULER

IS IN HIS LAST STAGES OF

TERMINAL CANCER.

ONE OF HIS DAUGHTERS SAYS HE

COULD BE IN HIS FINAL DAYS.

THE 88-YEAR-OLD SUFFERS FROM

CANCER OF THE ESOPHAGUS.

IN THE PAST WEEK, HIS

CONDITION HAS TAKEN A

DOWNTURN.

CAROL SAYS HE IS SURROUNDED

BY FAMILY AND LISTENING TO

HYMNS AS HE RECEIVES CARE AS

A NURSING FACILITY.

HE HOSTED "THE HOUR OF

POWER" TV MINISTRY FOR MORE

THAN 30 YEARS.

A WICID WILL PRAY BEFORE THE

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

NEXT WEEK.

THEY FOLLOW PEGAN BELIEFS

AND PRACTICES.

LIZ BENNETT INVITED THE

WICKEN TO BE THE PASTOR OF

THE DAY.

THE GROUP SAYS

REPRESENTATIVES CAN ASK

ANYONE THEY WANT TO PRAY,

BUT LEGISLATORS ARE FREE NOT

TO COME.

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS GET THE

LATEST FROM CBN NEWS BY

GOING TO OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

PAT AND TERRY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700 CLUB"

RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: THE MIGHT JESUS

WAS BETRAYED, HE AND HIS

DISCIPLES GATHERED IN AN

UPPER ROOM TO CELEBRATE THE

JEWISH PASSOVER.

IN A FEW MINUTES, WE'LL

COMMEMORATE THAT LAST SUPPER

BY SHARING COMMUNION

TOGETHER WITH YOU.

BUT FIRST WE'RE GOING TO

WATCH A DRAMATIC PORTRAYAL

OF THE SACRIFICE OF CHRIST'S

BODY AND BLOOD.

IT IS TOLD BY THE LATE

SCULPTURE GIL AMELIO THROUGH

THE IMAGE OF CLAY.

IT IS CALLED "THE FACE OF

CHRIST."

IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE

WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH

GOD AND THE WORD WAS GOD.

AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH

AND DWELLED AMONG US.

AND WE BEHELD THIS GLORY,

FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.

WORDS LIKE THESE HAVE BEEN

THE WORDS THAT INSPIRED

ARTISTS UP THROUGH THE

CENTURIES TO PORTRAY THE

FACE OF CHRIST.

LET'S GO THROUGH SOME OF

THAT HISTORY AND SCRIPTURE

AS THE ARTIST SPEAKS ABOUT

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR, JESUS

CHRIST.

*

YET THE EARLY ARTIST WAS

INSPIRED BY THE WORDS OF

ISAIAH, WHERE ISAIAH SPOKE

ABOUT THE SUFFERING SERVANT

TO COME.

IN HIS 52 CHAPTER, ISAIAH

SAID THAT THIS SUFFERING

SERVANT, THIS MESSIAH, WOULD

SUFFER A BEATING SO THAT HIS

FORM WOULD BE MARRED MORE

THAN ALL OF THE SONS OF

MEN.

AND THEN IN THE 53 CHAPTER,

WE SEE THE SPLIT IN THE

NAZARENE.

THE 53 CHAPTER SPOKE ABOUT

THE DESPICE DESPISED MAN,

AS IF IT WERE A ROOT THAT

WOULD NOT BEAR FRUIT THROUGH

THE SEED THAT WAS PLANTED

UPON IT OR DROPPED UPON A

DRY GROUND.

THERE WOULD BE NOTHING ABOUT

HIS APPEARANCE THAT WOULD

MAKE US DESIROUS OF HIM.

IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THE WORDS

PROPHESIED BY ISAIAH, THIS

JESUS WOULD BE BEATEN AND

BATTERED SO WE COULDN'T

RECOGNIZE HIM ANY LONGER.

THESE ARE THE VERY BASIC

SCRIPTURAL SPEESE PIECES

THAT INSPIRED THE ARTISTS.

LET'S GATHER THE EASTERN

EXPERIENCE WHERE IT REALLY

BEGAN.

SO WE SEE THESE LONG

PIECES, AND HOLDING THERE

FOR A MINUTE, LET'S JUMP THE

GAP IN CENTURIES, AND MOVE

TO THE RENAISSANCE.

SEEING THE APPEARANCE WE

GENERALLY ACCEPT AS THE FACE

OF CHRIST.

SO WE SEE THE WARMER

APPEARANCE OF THE FACE OF

CHRIST.

THE BEARD REMAINING THE SAME

FROM THE VERY FIRST

CENTURY.

WHAT WERE THE WORDS THAT NOW

MOVED THIS ARTIST?

WE CAN EXPLAIN THAT THROUGH

THREE PAINTINGS: THE AGONY

OF THE GARDEN, THE ENTRY

INTO JERUSALEM, AND THE

CONFRONTATION OF THE

SOLDIERS.

THE SOLDIERS TOOK HIS ROBE.

AND THEY PLACED THIS PURPLE

ROBE ABOUT JESUS, WHO

CLAIMED TO BE THE KING OF

THE JEWS, AND THEY MADE FUN

OF HIM.

AND THEY GAVE HIM A SEPTOR.

BUT BEFORE WE GO INTO THAT

PAINTING, LET'S LOOK AT THE

OTHER TWO.

RECENTLY, MOST OF THE WORLD

CELEBRATED PALM SUNDAY,

WHERE JESUS RODE INTO TOWN

ON A DONKEY THAT HADN'T BEEN

RIDDEN BEFORE, ACCORDING TO

PROPHECY.

JESUS WOULD RIDE INTO THOSE

NARROW STREETS OF JERUSALEM,

A PLACE MANY WOULD SAY HE

SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN AT THAT

TIME, AND PEOPLE WOULD THROW

PALM LEAFS AT HIS FEET.

AND HE WOULD HEAR HOSANNA,

BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN

THE NAME OF THE LORD.

BUT THERE WERE OTHERS WHO

DIDN'T BELIEVE IN JESUS.

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WOULD

GIVE HIM MOCK SALUTES

THROUGH THE TREES.

AND PEOPLE WOULD SHOUT TO

HIM...

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

"HERE, O ISRAEL, THE LORD

OUR GOD, THE LORD IS ONE."

IN THE OTHER PAINTING, JESUS

IN THE AGONY IN THE GARDEN,

WE READ ABOUT IT IN LUKE 22:

44.

AS JESUS WAS IN THAT GARDEN,

HE KNEW WHAT WAS ABOUT TO

HAPPEN WITHIN A MATTER OF

HOURS.

THIS JESUS, BORN OF A WOMAN,

AS ANY MAN OR WOMAN IS.

EIGHT DAYS AFTER HIS BIRTH,

HE WOULD SHED BLOOD,

ACCORDING TO CUSTOM OF HIS

PARENTS.

BUT JESUS WAS BORN TO DIE.

IN THAT SCENE, WE SEE JESUS

LYING THERE AND THEN PRAYING

ON A ROCK.

SOME OF THE APOSTLES WERE

NOT AWAKE AT THAT TIME.

AND AS HE SWEAT, LUKE, THE

PHYSICIAN, TELLS US, AFTER

THE FACT, AFTER HE HAD

GATHERED THE EVIDENCE --

LUKE WASN'T THERE AT THAT

TIME -- THAT HIS SWEAT

TURNED INTO GIANT DROPLETS

OF BLOOD.

THAT'S WHEN HE BEGAN TO DIE,

MEDICALLY.

JESUS WOULD THEN LOOK UP

INTO A BEAM OF LIGHT, AND

THE ARTIST, HOFFMAN,

PORTRAYS THIS SCENE.

AND JESUS WOULD SAY TO THE

FATHER, LET THIS PASS.

LET ME OUT OF THIS MOMENT,

BUT LET NOT MY WILL BE DONE,

BUT THINE.

AND THE ARTIST CAN RELATE TO

HIM BECAUSE JESUS PRAYED

THAT PRAYER.

AND EVEN AFTER THAT PRAYER,

HE COULD HEAR THE TINKER OF

ARMOR AS ONE OF HIS OWN

WOULD BRING HIS SOLDIERS TO

ARREST HIM AND GIVE HIM THE

KISS OF DEATH.

AND THEN IN THAT GIANT

PAINTING, A CONFRONTATION

BEFORE THE ROMAN SOLDIERS,

WE CAN SEE THE COMMANDER OF

THE GUARD.

IT IS KNOWN IN SCRIPTURES AS

COHORT.

A BATTALION OF MEN, 900, A

1,000, 1200.

AND COMING OFF THE HORSE,

THE COMMAND WOULD MAKE SPORT

OF HIM.

THEY WOULD PLACE A BLINDFOLD

ON HIM.

AND ALL HE HAD TO DO AT THAT

TIME WAS TO CONVINCE THE

COHORT, THE ROMAN SOLDIERS.

SO HE WOULD ASK JESUS TO

PLAY A TRICK.

YOU'VE BEEN AROUND JUDEA,

AND YOU HEARD ABOUT ALL OF

THESE PROPHETS WHO HEAL

PEOPLE OF LEPROSY AND THEN A

MONTH LATER OR SO THE

LEPROSY COMES BACK.

ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE MEN?

HOW MANY HAVE SEEN THE

THINGS JESUS HAS DONE?

NOT I?

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

HAROD AND BE A POLITICIAN.

TELL ABOUT THAT BLIND MAN

ALONG THE ROAD.

HE WAS THERE.

YOU ACTUALLY HEALED HIM?

CAN YOU SEE THROUGH THAT

BLINDFOLD.

IF YOU'RE A KING, YOU CAN

SEE THROUGH A MERE BLIND

FOLD.

WHO WAS IT WHO SPIT ON

THEE?

WAS IT ME?

DO YOU SEE THY REED?

LOOK THROUGH THE BLINDFOLD

BLINDFOLD.

CAN'T YOU SEE THROUGH A MERE

PIECE OF CLOTHE.

AND THIS FOOLISHNESS WOULD

GO ON.

BUT JESUS WOULDN'T SAY ONE

WORD, AND THEY WOULD REMOVE

THE BLINDFOLD AND LET HIM

GO.

WE'LL SEE WHAT YOUR OWN WILL

DO.

AND THEY RELEASED HIM TO THE

MOB AT THE PETORIUM.

AT THAT TIME, THEY WOULD

FASHION A HEAD PIECE OF

THRONES.

IN THIS SETTING, WOULD THE

SOLDIERS ACTUALLY COUNT THE

39?

JESUS WOULD THEN BE

DELIVERED UP.

HE WOULD CARRY THAT CROSS

SOME 800, 900 YARDS TO GAL

GALGATHA.

AND WHEN THEY GOT HIM THERE,

THEY WOULD CROWN HIM WITH A

CROWN OF THRONES.

AND THEY WOULD CRUCIFY HIM.

THE PERSIANS INVITED IT, BUT

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WERE

EXPERT AT THIS.

WE SEE THIS SCENE IN

PAINTINGS, JESUS FULFILLING

EVERY IOTA OF PROPHECY.

THEY WOULD THEN TAKE HIM,

IN THIS CONDITION, AND THEY

WOULD PLACE HIM ON A CROSS.

THEY WOULD FIX HIM WITH

NAILS IN A SPECIAL AREA IN

THE WRIST.

THEY WOULD DRIVE THESE NAILS

IN HIS WRISTS, ONE DOWN

BELOW ON A FOOT.

AND JESUS DIDN'T STAND ON

THE CROSS LIKE SOME KIND OF

A KING.

JESUS THE MAN, TOTAL MAN,

MINUS ONE THING WE ARE ALL

HEIR TO -- HE DIDN'T SIN.

AND HE COULDN'T EXHALE HIS

AIR.

AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT,

JESUS WOULD LOOK UP INTO THE

HEAVENS AND IT BECAME DARK.

HE COULDN'T SEE THE FATHER

ANYMORE.

AND THE FINAL EXHALE IS

THERE, IN THIS CONDITION.

THEY COULD HEAR HIM.

AAHHHH!

JESUS WOULD RISE DOWN

BELOW.

"FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR

THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO."

AND EVEN THEN HE COULD HAVE

CONTEMPTED, COME DOWN GOD.

ISAIAH 14: 14: JESUS WOULD

RISE AGAIN AND THEN HE KNEW

THE FATHER WASN'T THERE.

HE DIDN'T TURN DIVINITY ON

AND OFF.

JESUS WOULD LOOK UP AND

SHOUT SOMETHING THEY DIDN'T

QUITE UNDERSTAND.

[SPEAKING A

FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

"MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAS

THOU FORSAKEN ME?"

AT THE VERY END JESUS WOULD

SAY, "BUT INTO THINE HEIRS,

I COMMEND MY SPIRIT."

AND HE WOULD DIE.

BUT JESUS, AS HE PROMISED,

CAME BACK ON THE THIRD DAY,

NOT TO BE JESUS THE

CRUCIFIED, BUT JESUS, CHRIST

THE KING, AS HE SAID HE

WOULD, RISING LAZARUS FROM

THE DEAD, ALONE HEALING A

WOMAN, HEALING A BLIND MAN.

JESUS CAME BACK.

AND HE SAID HE WILL COME

BACK A SECOND TIME.

ARE WE LIVING AS IF WE

BELIEVE THIS?

THAT JESUS WOULD HAVE TO DIE

THIS DEATH, AND THE FATHER

WOULD LET HIM GO, AS HE DID

EPHRAIM.

"YOU'RE SO BENT ON LEAVING,"

HE SAID IN HOSEA 10, "THAT I

WILL LET YOU GO."

AND JESUS, THE MESSIAH, TOOK

ON ALL OF THE SINS OF MEN SO

WE WOULD BE FREE WITH

GRACE.

IF THE WORLD OF ART GIVES US

NOTHING MORE THAN JUST TO

THINK ABOUT THESE MATTERS,

IT WILL HAVE ACHIEVED ITS

GRANDEST GOAL.

Pat: SO WE STAND HERE

ON THIS MAUNDY THURSDAY AND

THINK ABOUT WHAT HE DID.

YOU KNOW, THIS UNIVERSE WE

LIVE IN I IN IS ENORMOUS.

JUST THE SOLAR SYSTEM WE'RE

IN IS MAYBE ONE OF A MILLION

SOLAR SYSTEMS, IN ONE OF THE

BILLION GALAXIES IN THE

UNIVERSE.

THE DEPTHS ARE BEYOND

BELIEF.

BUT DO YOU REALIZE WHAT

HAPPENED TO JESUS THIS DAY

CHANGED THE COURSE OF ALL

ETERNITY.

NOT JUST OUR WORLD, BUT THE

WHOLE UNIVERSE.

AND WHEN HE DIED, HE WAS

CLEANSING GOD'S UNIVERSE.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS, "I'M

GOING TO MAKE A NEW HEAVEN

AND A NEW EARTH WHEREIN

DWELLS RIGHTEOUSNESS."

GOD IS GOING TO MAKE A NEW

HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH, BUT

IT IS GOING TO BE BASED ON

THE SUFFERING OF JESUS.

BUT TODAY YOU CAN START

OUT.

DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF A

NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH?

DO YOU WANT TO START ANEW?

WELL, THE ONLY WAY TO DO

THAT IS TO HAVE YOUR SINS

FORGIVEN, TO BE CLEANSED OF

THE THINGS THAT YOU HAVE

DONE THAT ARE WRONG.

AND JESUS CHRIST SAID, COME

UNTO ME ALL YOU WHO LABOR,

WHO ARE HEAVY LADEN, AND I

WILL GIVE YOU REST.

I WILL CLEANSE YOU AND MAKE

YOU WHOLE.

NOW, IF YOU WANT THAT, IF

YOU WANT TO BE FREE, DON'T

TURN DOWN THE SUFFERING OF

JESUS CHRIST.

BUT EMBRACE IT BECAUSE IT IS

FOR YOU AND IT'S A FREE

GIFT.

AND IF YOU WANT IT, I WANT

YOU TO DO SOMETHING.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY WITH ME.

I WANT YOU TO PRAY RIGHT

NOW.

AND I WANT YOU TO LET JESUS

CHRIST COME INTO YOUR

HEART.

WOULD YOU DO THAT?

WHEREVER YOU ARE, JUST BOW

YOUR HEAD WITH ME RIGHT

NOW.

FATHER, IN JESUS' NAME --

THAT'S RIGHT, PRAY WITH ME.

IN JESUS' NAME, I REALIZE

THAT YOUR DEATH WAS FOR ME,

AND I EMBRACE IT.

I ACKNOWLEDGE IT.

I TAKE IT.

I SURRENDER TO IT.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, LORD, I

AM YOURS.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

MINE.

I GIVE YOU MY HEART AND I

RECEIVE YOU AS MY SAVIOR.

THANK YOU, LORD.

IN YOUR HOLY NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME JUST

THEN, I HAVE A LITTLE

BOOKLET I WANT TO GIVE YOU.

IT IS CALLED "A NEW DAY."

YOU JUST MADE A DECISION AND

YOU STARTED A NEW LIFE, AND

I WANT TO GIVE YOU THIS.

IT WILL HELP YOU.

IT'S A C.D. AND ALSO A

BOOKLET.

YOU CAN CALL IN NOW.

THERE IS NO CHARGE

WHATSOEVER.

AND YOU CAN SAY, LISTEN, I

PRAYED WITH PAT.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

AND I HAVE HAVE BEEN BORN

AGAIN.

SO WOULD YOU GO TO YOUR

PHONE RIGHT NOW AND CALL IN

AND SAY, I JUST PRAYED WITH

YOU.

I GAVE MY HEART TO THE

LORD.

NOW, I'VE ALSO SAID, FOR

THOSE OF YOU WHO WANT TO

PARTICIPATE, THAT WE WANT TO

DO WHAT JESUS DID ON THAT

LAST EVENING, WHERE HE MET

TOGETHER WITH HIS DISCIPLES

AND THEY ATE A PASSOVER

MEAL, THE SATER MEAL.

AND THE NEXT DAY HE WENT AND

WAS SEIZED AND CRUCIFIED.

SO TERRY IS HERE WITH ME,

AND WE'RE GOING TO ASK GOD

TO BLESS US.

HE SAID -- THE BIBLE SAYS

WHEN THEY HAD EATEN, HE TOOK

BREAD AND HE BLESSED IT.

DO YOU WANT TO BLESS THE

BREAD?

THANK YOU, LORD.

Terry: LORD, HOW CAN WE

EVER THANK YOU ENOUGH THAT

YOU WERE WILLING TO BE

BROKEN, SO WE COULD HAVE

ETERNITY WITH YOU AND

FORGIVENESS OF OUR SINS AND

A NEW BEGIN.

JESUS, THANK YOU FOR THE

SACRIFICE.

WE RECEIVE IT TODAY IN YOUR

HOLY NAME OF CHRIST.

AMEN.

Pat: THIS IS MY BODY,

WHICH IS BROKEN FOR YOU.

MY BODY, WHICH IS BROKEN FOR

YOU.

DO YOU WANT TO SHARE THIS

WITH THE AUDIENCE HERE?

IF YOU WOULD TAKE THE BREAD

IN YOUR OWN HOME, TERRY IS

GOING TO SHARE, AND THE

OTHER GUYS ARE GOING TO

SHARE, THE BREAD HERE WITH

THE AUDIENCE.

IT IS MY BODY, HE SAID,

BROKEN FOR YOU.

THE BODY OF OUR LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

Terry: THANK YOU.

Pat: THIS DO IN

REMEMBRANCE OF ME.

Pat: THE BIBLE ALSO

SAID, IN LIKE MANNER, WHEN

THEY HAD SUPPED, HE TOOK A

CUP.

HE SAID, THIS CUP IS THE NEW

COVENANT IN MY BLOOD.

NOW, WHAT WAS THE OLD

COVENANT?

IT WAS THE COVENANT BASED ON

THE MOSAIC LAW, THAT EVERY

YEAR HAD TO BE CELEBRATED BY

THE SHEDDING OF THE BLOOD OF

BULLS AND GOATS.

BUT JESUS SAID, I'M GOING TO

DIE AND YOU WON'T HAVE TO DO

THIS OVER AND AGAIN.

BUT YOU CAN JUST DO IT IN

REMEMBRANCE BECAUSE IT WILL

BE MY BLOODSHED FOR YOU, A

NEW COVENANT BASED ON GRACE,

THAT IS SEALED BY THE BLOOD

OF JESUS CHRIST.

AND SO WE SHARE TOGETHER THE

BLOOD OF OUR LORD JESUS

CHRIST.

Terry: AMEN.

THE BLOOD OF CHRIST.

Pat: THIS DO IN

REMEMBRANCE OF ME.

THANK YOU, LORD.

THANK YOU, LORD.

AND I THANK ALL OF YOU FOR

BEING WITH US ON THIS

SPECIAL MAUNDY THURSDAY.

WE PRAY THAT YOUR EASTER

WILLIN WILL BE GLORIOUS FOR

YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

BE SURE TO JOIN US

TOMORROW.

WE HAVE TWO STORIES OF

MODERN-DAY EASTER MIRACLES.

MINI SERIES THAT PRECEDED
