Wendy: EXPERTS WEIGH

IN ON THE BIGGEST ISSUE OF

ALL TIME.

THAT'S WHAT IS THE BEST

EXPLANATION OF THE DATA.

Wendy: THE EVIDENCE

FOR THE RESURRECTION.

THE REASON THE STORY IS

THIS WAY IS BECAUSE IT

MUST BE GROUNDED IN WHAT

HAPPENED.

Wendy: THEN CELEBRATE

HOLY WEEK WITH A "700

CLUB" CLASSIC.

GILL AMILEO RECREATES THE

FINAL HOURS OF JESUS

CHRIST ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

YOU CAN SEE THROUGH A

MERE BLINDFOLD?

*

Pat: WELL, WELCOME,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, TO

THIS SPECIAL EDITION OF

"THE 700 CLUB."

TODAY, IF YOU MISSED IT,

IS MAUNDY THURSDAY,

CELEBRATING THE LAST

SUPPER OF JESUS CHRIST AS

HE LOOKED INTO HIS

CRUCIFIXION ON FRIDAY AND

THE RESURRECTION ON EASTER

OR SUNDAY MORNING.

WHAT WAS THEN THE

BEGINNING OF A NEW DAY, A

NEW WEEK.

AS PART OF OUR HOLY WEEK

TRADITION, WE'LL BE

SHARING COMMUNION WITH YOU

ON THIS PROGRAM.

WE INVITE YOU TO GET SOME

BREAD, JUICE, OR WINE, AND

YOU CAN JOIN WITH US LATER

ON.

Wendy: AND ALSO

COMING UP, WE'LL TAKE AN

UNFORGETTABLE LOOK AT THE

LAST FEW HOURS OF JESUS'

LIFE THROUGH THE SCULPTOR

GILL AMILEO.

Pat: BUT, FIRST.

TENSIONS ARE ESCALATING AS

PUTIN REFUSES TO BACK DOWN

ON HIS SUPPORT FOR SYRIA,

EVEN AFTER A DAY OF

DIPLOMATIC TALKS IN

MOSCOW.

HERE IS DALE HURD.

President Trump:

RIGHT NOW, WE'RE NOT

GETTING ALONG WITH RUSSIA

AT ALL.

Reporter: IT WASN'T

SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS.

U.S.-RUSSIAN RELATIONS

WERE SUPPOSED TO IMPROVE

UNDER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION.

BUT THE SARIN GAS ATTACK

BY BASHAR al-ASSAD HAS

CAUSED U.S.-RUSSIA TIES TO

HIT BOTTOM.

THE CURRENT STATE OF

U.S.-RUSSIA RELATIONS IS

AT A LOW POINT.

Reporter: AND THE

LEVEL OF TRUST HAS

DETERIORATED, THIS AFTER

SECRETARY OF STATE REX

TILLERSON FACED AN

UNUSUALLY HOSTILE

RECEPTION IN MOSCOW.

THE U.S. MISSILE STRIKE ON

SYRIA THAT TRG TRIGGERED THE

DIPLOMATIC CRISIS HIT A

SYRIAN AIR BASE, WHERE

THERE HAD BEEN RUSSIAN

MILITARY.

SO DID RUSSIA KNOW ABOUT

THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS?

President Trump: I

WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT

THEY DIDN'T KNOW, BUT THEY

CERTAINLY COULD HAVE.

WE'LL FIND OUT.

Reporter: TILLERSON

CALLED FOR REGIME CHANGE

IN DAMASCUS.

OUR VIEW IS THAT THE

REIGN OF THE ASSAD FAMILY

IS COMING TO AN END.

Reporter: BUT SERGEI

LAVROV SAID EXPERIMENTS

LIKE THAT, THAT ARE BUILT

ON AN OPPOSITION OF

OVERTHROW DICTATORS OR

TOTATOTALATARIAN DICTATOR,

WE'VE ALREADY SEEN.

AND THEY AGREED TO

DISAGREE ABOUT UKRAINE,

WHERE MOSCOW BACKS REBEL

FORCES.

GOOGLE TRENDS REPORTS

INTERNET SEARCHES FOR THE

TERM "WORLD WAR III" HAVE

HIT AN ALL-TIME HIGH.

THE WORLD'S TWO

FOREMOST NUCLEAR POWERS

CANNOT HAVE THIS KIND OF A

RELATIONSHIP.

Reporter: AND THE

U.S. WARNED RUSSIA IT IS

ONLY ISOLATING ITSELF WITH

ITS CONTINUED SUPPORT OF

ASSAD.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Pat: AS WE MENTIONED

BEFORE, THE RUSSIANS DON'T

HAVE ANY ECONOMY.

THEIR ECONOMY IS IN

TATTERS.

THEY'VE GOT A FEW

ALOGUARDS THAT ARE

ENORMOUSLY RICH, AND PUTIN

HIMSELF IS ENORMOUSLY

RICH, BUT BEYOND THAT,

THEY ONLY HAVE A SHELL OF

AN ARMED FORCES.

SO MOST OF WHAT THEY'RE

DOING IS A BLUFF.

AND PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

REFUSED TO CALL IT A

BLUFF, SO THE RUSSIANS GOT

AWAY WITH MURDER.

WHATEVER THEY WANTED TO

DO, THEY TOOK OVER THE

CRIMEA AND THEY MOVED INTO

THE UKRAINE, AND ALL OF

THOSE THINGS THEY DID.

OKAY.

BUT NOW THERE IS SOMEBODY

WHO SAYS, LOOK, WE'RE THE

BIG DOG, AND WE'RE GOING

TO BE TREATED LIKE THE BIG

DOG.

AND WE'LL GET ALONG WITH

YOU, BUT YOU'RE GOING TO

UNDERSTAND THAT WE'RE

GOING TO CALL THE TUNE.

THAT'S ALL WELL AND GOOD,

EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THEY

HAVE AN ENORMOUS ARSENAL

OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AND IF THEY GET PUSHED SO

FAR AND THEY PULL THE

TRIGGER -- BUT I DON'T

THINK PUTIN AND THE PEOPLE

IN RUSSIA ARE INSANE.

THE ONES IN NORTH KOREA

ARE INSANE.

AHMADINEJAD, IF HE GETS

BACK IN POWER, IS INSANE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE MORE THAN

WILLING TO EMULATE THE

ENTIRE GLOBE TO ESTABLISH

THEIR POWER.

THE RUSSIANS ARE NOT THAT

WAY.

BUT YOU GIVE THEM AN OUT.

DON'T PUSH THEM INTO A

CORNER.

GIVE THEM A FACE-SAVING

OUT.

AND THAT'S GOING TO

HAPPEN.

BUT LIKE IT OR NOT, BASHAR

al-ASSAD HAS GOT TO GO.

HE HAS PROVEN HIMSELF IN

WORTHY OF LEADING A

NATION.

> AS U.S.-RUSSIAN

RELATIONS SOUR, PRESIDENT

TRUMP'S RELATIONSHIPS WITH

CHINA SEEM TO BE ON THE

RISE.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THAT.

John: TENSIONS WITH

CHINA HAVE EASED UP AFTER

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MEETING

WITH CHINA'S PRESIDENT

LAST WEEK.

DURING THE CAMPAIGN, TRUMP

WAS PRETTY TOUGH ON CHINA,

BUT NOW HE SAYS THE U.S.

WILL NOT LABEL CHINA AS A

CURRENCY MANIPULATOR.

BACKING OFF FROM THAT

TRADE LABEL MEANS TRADE

WITH CHINA LIKELY WON'T BE

DISRUPTED BY HIGHER

TARIFFS.

CHINA APPEARS TO BE

CHANGING ITS TUNE ON BIG

INTERNATIONAL ISSUES LIKE

SYRIA AND NORTH KOREA.

FOR EXAMPLE, TRUMP SAYS

PRESIDENT X WILL STOP

BUYING COAL FROM NORTH

KOREA.

AND ON SYRIA, CHINA DID

NOT TRY TO BLOCK

YESTERDAY'S UNITED

NATIONS' RESOLUTION

CONDEMNING THE USE OF

CHEMICAL WEAPONS.

RUSSIA DID, HOWEVER, VETO

THAT RESOLUTION.

PAT?

Pat: TRUMP IS A

DEAL-MAKER.

AND SO HE SAYS TO THE HEAD

OF CHINA, LOOK, HOW ABOUT

YOU MAKING A FEW BILLION

DOLLARS ON LOWER TARIFFS,

AND WE'LL GIVE YOU SOME

TRADE CONCESSIONS SO YOU

CAN SELL STUFF IN THE

UNITED STATES, AND ALL

YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS TURN

THE SCREWS ON NORTH KOREA.

IF YOU'LL DO THAT, WE'LL

GIVE YOU SOME MONEY OR

HELP YOU MAKE SOME MONEY.

THAT'S A BUSINESSMAN'S

DEAL, AND IT LOOKS LIKE

THE CHINESE ARE BUYING IT.

SO THE GREAT DEAL-MAKER IS

AT HIS BEST WHEN HE IS

DEALING WITH SOMEBODY WHO

HIMSELF IS A GREAT

DEAL-MAKER.

JOHN?

John: A DISTURBING

NEW REPORT ABOUT THE STATE

OF A VETERANS' RIGHT HERE

IN OUR NATION'S CAPITAL.

PATIENTS AT THE VETERANS'

AFFAIRS FACILITY IN

WASHINGTON ARE IN IMMINENT

DANGER.

HOSPITAL STAFF WERE

ILL-EQUIPPED TO PERFORM

OPERATIONS, AND THEY FOUND

18 OF THE 25 STERILE

STORAGE AREAS WERE DIRTY.

AND 194 DOCUMENTS HAS

SHOWN THAT PATIENTS'

SAFETY HAS BEEN

COMPROMISED.

AND THE DIRECTOR HAS BEEN

REASSIGNED.

Pat: BIG DEAL, HE IS

REASSIGNED.

HE SHOULD BE FIRED.

THEY HAVEN'T FIRED

ANYBODY.

THEY HAVE GIVEN THEM

BONUSES.

AND THE VETERANS ARE DYING

BECAUSE THEY MISMANAGED

CARE.

I WONDER, AGAIN, WHY THE

PRESIDENT DOESN'T JUST

CLEAN HOUSE.

HE WAS PROMISING VETERANS

WE'RE GOING TO DO

SOMETHING ABOUT THE

VETERANS' ADMINISTRATION.

SO FAR, NO.

IT IS JUST AMAZING HOW

THOSE GUYS HOLD ON.

THEY SHOULD BE FIRED, NOT

REASSIGNED, NOT GIVEN

BONUSES.

THEY SHOULD BE FIRED.

THEY'RE INCOMPETENT, AND

THEY'RE HURTING OUR BRAVE

MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE

SERVED THIS COUNTRY SO

NOBLY.

AND IT ISN'T FAIR.

IT ISN'T RIGHT, WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

AND THEY SHOULD BE MADE TO

PAY FOR IT.

AND THERE SHOULD BE

CRIMINAL CHARGES.

WE OUGHT TO GET WITH IT

AND DO IT NOW.

JOHN?

John: PAT, A DRUG

CARTEL MEMBER HAS BEEN

ARRESTED IN MEXICO FOR THE

MURDER OF U.S. BORDER

PATROL AGENT BRIAN TERRY.

HE WAS KILLED IN A GUN

FIGHT AT THE BORDER.

IT EXPOSED A BOTCHED

PROGRAM CALLED "OPERATION

FAST AND FURIOUS."

AGENT LOST TRAC OF MORE TRACK OF MORE

THAN A THOUSAND GUNS, TWO

OF WHICH WERE FOUND AT THE

SITE OF TERRY'S DEATH.

> MORE INFORMATION ON

THE BUS DRIVING WHO KILLED

13 PEOPLE.

HE APPARENTLY HAD BEEN ON

PRESCRIPTION PILLS, HAD

MARIJUANA IN HIS TRUCK,

AND HAD BEEN TEXTING WHILE

DRIVING.

THE MAN DRIVING THE TRUCK

DURING THE HEAD-ON

COLLISION DURING THE

CHURCH BUS IS 20-YEAR-OLD

JACK DYLAN YOUNG.

HE HAD AN ANTI-DEPRESSANT,

A MEDICATION FOR PANIC

DISORDERS, AND A SLEEPING

PILL.

HE IS EXPECTED TO FACE

MANSLAUGHTER CHARGES.

Pat: I DON'T KNOW IF

MANSLAUGHTER IS ENOUGH.

WHAT AN AWFUL THING.

I'LL TELL YOU, YOU GET

BEHIND THE WHEEL OF ONE OF

THOSE MONSTERS, THEY'RE

2,000 POUNDS, 3,000

POUNDS, 4,000 POUNDS,

5,000 POUNDS, 6,000,000

POUNDS, AND IT IS A

MISSILE OF DEADLY FORCE.

AND TO GET SOMEBODY HOPPED

UP ON MEDICATION, TAKING

MARIJUANA, STONED AT THE

WHEEL, IT IS HORRIBLE.

THOSE POOR, INNOCENT

CHILDREN ARE DEAD BECAUSE

OF HIM.

YOU KEEP HEARING THESE

THINGS IN THE NEWS, AND

YOU'RE JUST APPALLED.

I MUST SAY, TEXAS IS GOING

TO TAKE CARE OF THIS ONE.

I HAVE GREAT FAITH IN

TEXAS.

GO GET 'EM, TEXAS.

Wendy: UP NEXT,

HISTORICAL PROOF FOR THE

RESURRECTION.

RESURRECTION.

LOOK AT THE

RESURRECTION EVIDENCE.

IT IS PRETTY REMARKABLE

HOW STRONG IT IS, AND

THAT'S WHY IT IS AT THE

CORE OF CHRISTIANITY.

Wendy: THREE EXPERTS

MAKE THEIR CASE FOR THE

RISEN CHRIST, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

Pat: WELL, WELCOME

BACK, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

THIS IS MAUNDY THURSDAY.

WE'RE LOOKING AT THE

RESURRECTION OF JESUS AND

THE CRUCIFIXION.

THESE ARE THE KEY TIMES OF

THE FAITH.

AND THE CORE BELIEF OF OUR

FAITH AS CHRISTIANS IS

THAT THE SON OF GOD TOOK

ON HUMAN FORM, THAT HE

LIVED AS A MAN AMONG US,

THAT HE SUFFERED AND DIED

FOR OUR SINS, AND THEN ON

THE THIRD DAY HE ROSE FROM

THE DEAD TO GIVE US

ETERNAL LIFE.

LET'S ASSUME THAT ALL OF

THAT IS NOT TRUE, THAT

JESUS CHRIST DIDN'T COME

BACK TO LIFE.

WELL, IF THAT'S THE CASE,

THEN OUR BELIEFS ARE, AS

PAUL SAID, WE'RE THE MOST

MISERABLE OF MEN IF THERE

IS NO RESURRECTION, AND

THEN CHRISTIANS ARE

STAKING THEIR HOPE ON A

FALSEHOOD.

SO ALL OF CHRISTIANITY

REALLY DEPENDS ON THOSE

SIMPLE FACTS THAT I

MENTIONED TO YOU, THAT

JESUS CAME, LIVED, DIED,

AND ROSE AGAIN.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS,

THERE IS PLENTY OF PROOF

TO BACK UP THE CORE

BELIEFS OF CHRISTIANITY.

Paul: TO BELIEVE THE

EVENTS AROUND THAT FIRST

EASTER, YOU HAVE TO

BELIEVE THAT JESUS DID,

INDEED, EXIST AND THAT THE

NEW TESTAMENT CAN BE

TRUSTED.

BIBLICAL SCHOLAR JONATHAN

MARROW.

WE HAVE FAR MORE

SOURCES FOR JESUS OF

NAZARETH THAN MANY OTHER

HISTORICAL FIGURES.

WE HAVE AT LEAST 18.

Paul: AS FOR THE NEW

TESTAMENT...

THESE BOOKS ARE THE

BEST ATTESTED PIECES OF

ANCIENT LITERATURE THAT WE

POSE.

Paul: THE BIBLE HAS

FAR MORE PAGES OF

SURVIVING THAN ANY OTHER

BOOK FROM ANTIQUITY.

YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT

OVER 5800 GREEK

MANUSCRIPTS, OVER 8,000

LALT TI,000LATIN MANUSCRIPTS.

MOST BOOKS HAVE AT BEAST A

DOZEN MANUSCRIPTS.

Paul: MARROW SAYS

EVERYTHING HANGS ON JESUS

RISING FROM THE DEAD.

PAUL SAID, YOU CAN TEST

THIS.

IF THE RESURRECTION DIDN'T

HAPPEN, CHRISTIANITY IS

FALSE.

IF THE RESURRECTION DIDN'T

HAPPEN, CHRISTIANITY IS

FALSE AND GO TO THE NEXT

RELIGION.

Paul: BUT TO DISMISS

THE RESURRECTION, ANY

THEORY YOU COME UP WITH

HAS TO EXPLAIN THREE

HISTORICAL FACTS: THAT

THERE WAS AN EMPTY TOMB

THREE DAYS AFTER JESUS'

BODY HAD BEEN PLACED IN

IT.

HE APPEARED IN NUMEROUS

PLACES FOR SEVEN WEEKS

AFTER HIS RESURRECTION.

AND SOMETHING HAPPENED

THAT TURNED THE DISCIPLES

TO BOLD BELIEVERS.

SOME SUGGESTED THAT THE

APOSTLES ALL LIED, A

ADVANTAGE CONSPIRACY

THEORY TO TURN HIS DEATH

INTO THE POSITIVE OF A

RISEN LORD.

BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT IT

ALL THE WAY THROUGH, IT IS

ACTUALLY EASIER TO BELIEVE

IN THE RESURRECTION THAN

ITS ALTERNATIVES.

SOME SUGGEST THAT THE

FEMALE DISCIPLES WHO FOUND

THE EMPTY TOMB COULD HAVE

JUST HAD THE WRONG TOMB.

BUT JOSEPH OF ARIMATHEA,

WHO OWNED THE TOMB WHERE

JESUS WAS, WOULD HAVE

QUICKLY CORRECTED THAT.

IF YOU ARE GOING AROUND

CLAIMING THAT JESUS AROSE

FROM THE DEAD, THAT

WOULDN'T GET OFF OF THE

GROUND.

IN THE RESURRECTION,

WHERE WAS THE HARDEST

PLACE TO CONVINCE ANYONE

IT WAS TRUE IF IT WAS

FALSE, JERUSALEM.

WHERE A 15-MINUTE WALK

COULD CONFIRM THE

EMPTINESS OF THE TOMB.

IF THEY WERE ASLEEP,

HOW WOULD THEY KNOW IT WAS

THE DISCIPLES.

AND IF THE DISCIPLES WERE

MAKING UP JESUS

RESURRECTION, WOULD THEY

HAVE LIVED AND DIED FOR

HIM IN A FICTION THEY MADE

UP?

IF THEY KNEW IT, TO SAY

HERE WERE THESE MEN THAT

NOT ONLY DIED FOR A LIE,

BUT THEY KNEW IT WAS A

LIE.

I CHALLENGE YOU FIND OUT

IF THAT IS TRUE.

IT IS NOT.

YOU DON'T DIE KNOWINGLY

FOR SOMETHING YOU KNOW YOU

MADE UP.

YOU WOULD BACK OFF.

AND THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN,

EITHER.

Paul: THESE AND OTHER

EXPERTS SAY IN TRUTH IT

TAKES SOMETHING AS RADICAL

AS JESUS' RESURRECTION TO

TRANSFORM COWARDLY PETER,

WHO WAS SO SCARED BEFORE

THE CRUCIFIXION, HE

CLAIMED HE DIDN'T EVEN

KNOW JESUS.

YOU SEE PETER GOING

FROM COWARD TO DISCIPLE.

Paul: AND JESUS'

BROTHER, JAMES, WAS

INSTANTLY CHANGED.

JAMES, THE BROTHER OF

JESUS DIDN'T FOLLOW HIM

DURING HIS EARTHLY

MISSION.

HE WAS EMBARRASSED.

AND THEN JESUS APPEARED

TO HIM AND HE BECAME THE

LEADER OF JERUSALEM.

AND JAMES BOTTOMS AN

EARLY LEADER IN THE

CHURCH, AND WAS PERSECUTED

AND EVENTUALLY KILLED FOR

THAT BELIEF.

Paul: AND APOLOGISTS

SAY IT COULD ONLY BE A

RESURRECTED JESUS SHOWING

UP THAT COULD CON CONFORM THE

CHURCH'S -- IN HIS OWN

WORDS, CHRIST APPEARED TO

HIM.

SO THE MAIN THING IS

JUST EXPLAINING HOW

SOMEONE LIKE A SAUL, WHO

BECOMES PAUL, EVEN EXISTS.

HE WAS HOLDING THE CODE

WHEN PEOPLE WERE KILLING

THE FIRST CHRISTIANS.

HE WAS ADAMANTLY OPPOSED

TO THIS MOVEMENT, AND THEN

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN.

WHAT ACCOUNTS FOR THAT?

ONE OF THE GREATEST

MURDERS TO A CHRISTIAN

HATER TO A CHRISTIAN

LOVER, SOMETHING HAPPENED

IN PAUL'S LIFE THAT I'VE

NEVER FOUND ANY OTHER

EXPLANATION THAT EVEN COME

CLOSE TO SATISFACTION ME,

EXCEPT JESUS APPEARED TO

PAUL AFTER THE

RESURRECTION.

Paul: THE FIRST

CENTURY JEWS BELIEVED

WOMEN WERE SECOND-CLASS

CITIZENS.

SO IF THE DISCIPLES WERE

LYING, THEY MADE THEIR

STORY ALL THE HARDER TO

ACCEPT BY PUTTING WOMEN AT

THE FOREFRONT.

MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE,

AND JOHN ALL REPORT JESUS

FOLLOWERS FINDING THE

TOMB.

A WOMAN'S TESTAMENT WOULD

BE ABOUT THE LEVEL OF A

SLAVE, AND THAT WOULD NOT

BE YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD.

THIS IS CALLED THE

CRITERION OF

EMBARRASSMENT.

YOU WOULD NEVER MAKE UP

THE STORY THIS WAY.

SO THE REASON THE STORY IS

THIS WAY IS BECAUSE IT

MUST BE GROUNDED IN WHAT

HAPPENED.

Paul: SAYING THAT THE

DISCIPLES LIED ABOUT

JESUS' RESURRECTION

DOESN'T EXPLAIN HIS

APPEARANCE BEFORE 500

PEOPLE.

YOU'VE GOT LIVING

HISTORY.

YOU'VE GOT THE PEOPLE WHO

WERE THERE TO CROSS-CHECK

WHATEVER MESSAGE IS BEING

THERE.

IT IS NOT AS THOUGH THESE

THINGS COULD HAVE BEEN

INVENTED AND NO ONE WOULD

HAVE CHALLENGED IT.

THERE ARE WITNESSES, GO

INVESTIGATE HIM.

IT HAS ALL OF THE RING

OF TRUTH.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE

THEN SAY, WELL, THE

APPEARANCES OF JESUS WERE

HALLUCINATIONS.

500 PEOPLE?

Paul: BUT HE STUDIED

HALLUCINATIONS, AND NO TWO

PEOPLE EVER HAVE THE SAME

HALLUCINATIONS.

WOULD 500 PEOPLE HAVE

THE SAME HALLUCINATIONS?

PAUL WOULD BE 500 MIRACLES

EQUAL TO THE RESURRECTION.

Paul: BUT PAUL SAYS,

TO ACCEPT THE

RESURRECTION, YOU HAVE TO

BELIEVE GOD EXISTS.

WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE

RESURRECTION EVIDENCE, IT

IS PRETTY REMARKABLE HOW

STRONG IT IS, AND THAT'S

WHY IT IS AT THE CORE OF

CHRISTIANITY.

BUT IT IS NOT A BLIND

FAITH KIND OF THING, LIKE

BELIEVING IN THE EASTER

BUNNY.

CHRISTIANS DON'T BELIEVE

THAT JESUS ROSE FROM THE

DEAD BECAUSE THE BIBLE

SAYS SO.

THEY BELIEVE HE ROSE FROM

THE DEAD BECAUSE THAT'S

WHAT THE EARLIEST

DOCUMENTS SHOW, AND THAT'S

THE BEST EXPLANATION OF

THE DATA.

Paul: PAUL STRAND,

CBN NEWS.

Pat: THAT'S, LADIES

AND GENTLEMEN, IS AN

EXCELLENT SUMMARY OF WHAT

WE BELIEVE.

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID, YOU

DON'T GO OUT AND DIE FOR A

MYTH.

IF YOU CREATED A FALSE

NARRATIVE, YOU'RE NOT

GOING TO GO OUT AND DIE.

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

CRUCIFIED AT THE STAKE.

NOBODY WOULD DO THAT.

YET THESE PEOPLE DID THE

BECAUSE THEY KNEW JESUS

CHRIST LIVED.

Wendy: AMEN.

> IF YOU HAVE SEEN GILL GILL

AMELLIO'S SCULPTURE, YOU

KNOW HOW UNIQUE IT IS.

WE INVITE YOU TO STAY

TUNED FOR "THE FACE OF

JESUS CHRIST," AND TO JOIN

US FOR COMMUNION.

THAT'S COMING UP LATER.

Wendy: ALLISON IS

ONLY NINE YEARS OLD, AND

SHE HAS ALREADY LED MANY

PEOPLE TO CHRIST.

IT STARTED WITH A VISIT TO

A LOCAL CHURCH AND A

VIEWING OF CBN'S

"SUPERBOOK."

*

Reporter:

NINE-YEAR-OLD ALLISON HAD

NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE

IT, A CHURCH WHERE KIDS

WERE SINGING AND DANCING.

HERE AUNT, WHO GOES TO THE

CHURCH, HAD INVITED HER.

MY AUNT HAD TALKED TO

ME ABOUT JESUS BEFORE, BUT

I REALLY DIDN'T KNOW MUCH

ABOUT HIM.

Reporter: BUT ALL OF

THAT CHANGED AFTER

ALLISON'S FIRST VISIT TO

THE "ORPHANS'

PROMISE"-SUPPORTED

MINISTRY'S CHURCH.

ON HER SECOND VISIT,

ALLISON WATCHED THE

"SUPERBOOK" EPISODE "HE IS

RISEN."

THAT WAS THE DAY SHE

BECAME A CHRISTIAN.

I PRAYED AND IT FELT

LIKE JESUS WAS HOLDING ME

AND THAT HE WOULD TAKE

CARE OF ME.

Reporter: EVEN AT

NINE YEARS OLD, ALLISON

KNEW IT WAS IMPORTANT FOR

HER TO TELL OTHERS ABOUT

JESUS.

I TOLD MY MOM AND

FRIENDS THAT HEAVEN AND

HELL ARE REAL.

Reporter: ALLISON

THEN INVITED HER MOM TO

THE CHURCH, WHERE SHE

PRAYED TO BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, TOO.

I FELT SO HAPPY WHEN MY

MOM ACCEPTED JESUS.

I DIDN'T WANT HER TO BE

LOST.

Reporter: IT HAS ONLY

BEEN A MONTH SINCE ALLISON

STARTED COMING TO THE

"SUPERBOOK" PROGRAM, AND

ALREADY SHE IS SEEING

OTHER FRIENDS SHE HAS

INVITED PRAYING TO BECOME

CHRISTIANS, TOO.

THANK YOU FOR

"SUPERBOOK," AND THANKS

FOR HELPING ME TO KNOW

JESUS.

TODAY'S "700 CLUB."

WELCOME BACK TO "THE

700 CLUB."

TWO STATES ARE LAUNCHING

SOME BIBLICAL PUSHBACK

AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE.

IN TEXAS, LAWMAKERS ARE

WEIGHING A BILL THAT WOULD

LET COUNTY JUDGES RECUSE

THEMSELVES FROM ISSUING

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES

IF THEY HAVE RELIGIOUS

OBJECTIONS.

AND NORTH CAROLINA'S BILL

QUOTES THE BIBLE AND IT

SAYS, "ALMIGHTY GOD IS THE

SOURCE OF MARRIAGE."

IT USES GENESIS 2: 24 TO

DEFINE MARRIAGE.

WELL, THE PRO-LIFE ACTION

LEAGUE IS CALLING ABORTION

OPPONENTS TO USE GOOD

FRIDAY AS A DAY TO PRAY

FOR FOR THE UNBORN.

IT IS CALLED "WAY OF THE

CROSS FOR VICTIMS OF

ABORTION."

THE EVENTS INCLUDE PRAYER

STATIONS WITH BIBLICAL

IMAGES OF CHRIST'S JOURNEY

TO THE CROSS.

THE GROUP SAYS THEY HAVE

SEEN THEIR PRAYERS

ANSWERED IN THE PAST WITH

PREGNANT WOMEN CHOOSING

LIFE.

LATEST NEWS FROM CBN NEWS

PAT AND WENDY WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF "THE 700

CLUB" RIGHT AFTER THIS.

Pat: WELL, THE NIGHT

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 BETRAYAL

OF THE SACRIFICE OF

CHRIST'S BODY AND BLOOD.

IT'S TOLD BY THE LATEST

SCULPTOR GIL AMELIO,

THROUGH AN IMAGE OF CLAY

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 HIS GLORY,

THAT GLORY AS OF THE ONLY

BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER,

FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.

WORDS LIKE THESE HAVE BEEN

THE WORDS THAT HAVE

INSPIRED THE ARTIST UP

THROUGH THE CENTURIES TO

PORTRAY THE FACE OF

CHRIST.

LET'S GO BACK INTO SOME OF

THAT HISTORY AND SCRIPTURE

AS THE ARTIST SPEAKS ABOUT

OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS

CHRIST.

*

*

THE APPEARANCE WAS LONG

AND RATHER UGLY, AND YET

THE EARLY ARTISTS WERE

INSPIRED BY THE WORD OF

ISAIAH, WHERE HE SPOKE

ABOUT THE SUFFERING

SERVANT TO COME.

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 53rd

CHAPTER, AND EVEN NOW IN

THE FIRST AND EARLY

CENTURIES, WE SEE THE PLIT

IN THE NAZARETH BEARD.

THE 53rd CHAPTER SPOKE

ABOUT THE DESPISED MAN,

ABJECT AMONG MEN.

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

EVENTUALLY BE BEATEN AND

BATTERED SO THAT WE

COULDN'T RE RECOGNIZE HIM ANY

LONGER.

THESE ARE THE SCRIPTAL

PIECES THAT INSPIRED THE

EARLY ARTISTS.

LET'S MOVE FURTHER TO

CAPTURE WHERE IT REALLY

BEGAN.

HOLDING THERE FOR A

MINUTE, LET'S JUMP THE GAP

IN CENTURIES AND MOVE FROM

THE FIRST TO THE 11

CENTURY, 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 TRIUMPH ENTRY INTO

JERUSALEM, AND THE

CONFRONTATION BEFORE THE

ROMAN SOLDIERS.

REMEMBER WHEN THE SOLDIERS

TOOK HIS CLOTHING OFF AND

PLACED HIM IN THE ROBES OF

A KING, AND THEY WOULD

MAKE SPORT OF HIM.

AND THEY PLACED THIS

PURPLE ROBE ON JESUS, WHO

CLAIMED TO BE THE KING OF

THE JEWS, AND THEY WOULD

MAKE FUN OF HIM.

AND THEY GAVE HIM A

SEPTOR, BUT BEFORE GOING

INTO THAT PAINTING, LET'S

LOOK AT THE OTHER TWO.

RECENTLY MOST OF THE

CHRISTIAN 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 THAT

ANY TACTICS WOULD ADVICE

HE SHOULDN'T HAVE GONE

THROUGH.

AND HE WOULD NOT ONLY HEAR

HOSANNAS, BLESSED IS HE

WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF

THE LORD.

BUT THOSE OTHERS WHO DID

NOT BELIEVE IN THIS

JESUS -- HE WOULD SEE THE

ROMAN SOLDIERS WHO WOULD

GIVE HIM MOCK SALUTES, AND

JESUS WOULD ANSWER THAT

FROM THE TREE.

AS HE MADE HIS WAY

THROUGH, HE WOULD HEAR

THAT BEAUTIFUL PRAYER IN

HIS OWN LANGUAGE, AND IN

HEBREW, AND THOSE PEOPLE

WOULD SHOUT TO HIM IN

HEBREW: "HERE O ISRAEL,

THE LORD OUR GOD, THE LORD

IS ONE."

JESUS WOULD RIDE INTO AND

THROUGH THAT CROWD AND

THEN CLAIM THE TEMPLE.

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 THE

CUSTOM OF HIS PARENTS, FOR

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 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 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 THE

SOLDIERS TO ARREST HIM AND

GIVE HIM THE KISS OF

DEATH.

AND THEN IN THAT GIANT

PAINTING, THE

CONFRONTATION SEEN BEFORE

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS, WE CAN

SEE THE CENTURION, THE

COMMANDER OF THE GUARD, IT

IS KNOWN AS A COHORT.

A BATTALION OF MEN, 1200

MEN, AND COMING OFF HIS

HORSE, THE COMMANDER WOULD

MAKE SPORT OF HIM.

AND HE WOULD PLACE A

BLINDFOLD AROUND THE EYES

OF JESUS BECAUSE THEY HAD

HEARD OF ALL THESE GREAT

TRICKS AND MIRACLES HE HAD

DONE.

AND ALL HE TO TO DO WAS

CONVINCE THE COHORTS.

SO IN FRONT OF HIS OWN

MEN, HE WOULD ASK JESUS TO

PLAY A TRICK.

COME ON, JESUS, YOU'VE

HEARD ABOUT ALL OF THESE

PROPHETS WHO HEAL PEOPLE

OF LEPROSY, AND A MONTH

LATER, THE LEPROSY COMES

BACK.

ARE YOU ONE OF THOSE

PROPHETS?

TELL MY MINE BECAUSE WE

HAVEN'T SEEN ANY OF THESE

TRICKS.

COME ON, CHRIST, HOW WAS

IT?

YOU'RE A YOUNG MAN.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO

HARROD AND BE A

POLITICIAN.

TELL US ABOUT THAT BLIND

MAN ALONG THE ROAD.

HE WAS THERE.

YOU ACTUALLY HEALED HIM,

RIGHT?

CAN YOU SEE THROUGH THAT

BLINDFOLD?

COME ON, CHRIST, IF YOU'RE

THE KING, YOU CAN SEE

THROUGH A MERE BLINDFOLD.

WHO WAS IT WHO SPIT ON ME?

WAS IT ME, ONE OF MY MEN.

CAN'T YOU SEE THY REED,

WHICH WAY DO I HOLD IT?

STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN?

LOOK THROUGH THE BLINDFOLD

BLINDFOLD.

CAN'T YOU SEE THROUGH A

MERE PIECE OF CLOTH?

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 ROME WILL

DO.

AND THEY RELEASED HIM TO

THE MOB.

AT THAT TIME THEY WOULD

FASHION A CROWN OF THORNS.

AND THEN ACCORDING TO LAW

AND CUSTOMS, JESUS WOULD

BE SCURGED.

40 STRIPES MINUS 1,

ACCORDING TO THE LAW.

IN THIS SETTING WOULD THE

SOLDIERS ACTUALLY COUNT

THE 39.

JESUS WOULD CARRY THAT

CROSS SOME 800, 900 YARDS.

TO CALGARY.

WHEN THEY GOT HIM THERE,

THEY WOULD CROWN HIM WITH

A CROWN OF THORNS AND THEY

WOULD CRUCIFY HIM.

THE ROMAN SOLDIERS WERE

QUITE EXPERT AT THIS.

WE SEE THESE SCENES

THROUGH PAINTINGS, JESUS

FULFILLING EVERY IOTA OF

PROPHECY.

*

THEY WOULD THEN TAKE

HIM IN THIS CONDITION,

THEY WOULD PLACE HIM ON A

CROSS, THEY WOULD AFFIX

HIM WITH NAILS, IN A

SPECIAL AREA IN THE WRIST.

THEY WOULD DRIVE THESE

NAILS IN HIS WRISTS, ONE

DOWN BELOW, ON A FOOT,

OVERLAPPING THE OTHER.

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

ERR TO -- HE DIDN'T SIN.

ON THIS CROSS, HE COULDN'T

EXHALE HIS AIR.

AND JESUS WOULD LOOK UP

INTO THE HEAVENS AND IT

BECAME DARK.

HE COULDN'T SEE THE FATHER

ANYMORE.

AND THE FINAL EXHALE WAS

THERE, IN THIS CONDITION.

THEY COULD HEAR HIM.

JESUS WOULD RISE OUT OF

THAT FULKSUM DOWN BELOW.

"FATHER, FORGIVE THEM FOR

THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY

DO."

AND EVEN THEN HE COULD

HAVE -- HE WOULD HEAR THE

ADVERSARIES, SPOKEN IN

ISAIAH 14: 14.

JESUS WOULD RISE AGAIN,

AND THEN HE KNEW THE

FATHER WASN'T THERE.

AND IN HIS HUMANITY, HE

DIDN'T TURN DIVINITY OWN

AND OFF.

JESUS WOULD LOOK UP AND

SHOUT SOMETHING THEY

DIDN'T QUITE UNDERSTAND.

"MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAS

THOU FORSAKEN ME."

AND AT THE VERY END JESUS

WOULD SAY, "BUT INTO THY

HANDS 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, RAISING LAZARUS

FROM THE DEAD, HEALING A

WOMAN, HEALING A BLIND

MAN.

JESUS CAME BACK.

AND HE SAID HE SAID HE

WOULD COME BACK AGAIN A

SECOND TIME.

ARARE WE LIVING, WE WHO CALL

OURSELVES CHRISTIANS, AS

IF WE BELIEVE THIS, THAT

JESUS WOULD HAVE TO DIE

THIS DEATH AND THE FATHER

WOULD LET HIM GO.

YOU'RE SO BENT ON LEAVING,

HE SAID IN HOSEA 10, I

MUST LET YOU GO.

AND JESUS THE LAMB TOOK

UPON HIMSELF ALL OF THE

SINS OF MEN SO THAT WE

WOULD BE FREE UNDER GRACE.

IF THE WORD OF ART GIVES

US NOTHING MORE THAN TO

THINK ABOUT THESE MATTERS,

IT WILL HAVE ACHIEVED ITS

GRANDEST GOAL.

Pat: DO YOU REALIZE

THAT THE SON OF GOD, THE

PERSON WHO CREATED THIS

EARTH -- I WAS READING

TODAY IN ISAIAH, WHERE GOD

SAYS, "HEAVEN IS MY THROWN

AND EARTH IS MY FOOT

STOOL.

WHAT IS THE HOUSE THAT YOU

WOULD BUILD FOR ME, SEEING

THAT MY HAND HAS MADE ALL

OF THESE THINGS," SAYS THE

LORD.

AND THIS IS THE ONE

THROUGH WHOM CREATION WAS

MADE.

AND WITHOUT HIM, NOTHING

WAS MADE THAT WAS MADE.

AND HE CAME TO EARTH, TOOK

ON THE FORM OF A MAN,

LIVED AMONG US, AND THEN

HE SUFFERED INCREDIBLE

TORMENT, WAS BEATEN,

SLASHED, WHIPPED, MOCKED,

SPILT UPON.

AND THEN HE DIED.

THE GOOD NEWS IS HE ROSE

FROM THE DEAD, AND THAT'S

WHY WE BELIEVE IN HIM.

AND FOR YEARS AND YEARS

AND YEARS HE HAS COME TO

PEOPLE'S HEARTS, JUST LIKE

YOU, JUST LIKE ME.

AND HE SHOWED HIMSELF.

AND I KNOW THAT MY

REDEEMER LIVES.

JOB SAID IT, AND I BELIEVE

IT BECAUSE IT HAS HAPPENED

TO ME.

I KNOW THAT HE LIVES.

AND TODAY ON THIS

PREPARATION FOR GOOD

FRIDAY AND EASTER, I WANT

TO GIVE YOU AN OPPORTUNITY

TO OPEN YOUR HEART TO HIM.

IF YOU'VE NEVER MET HIM,

NOW IS THE CHANCE.

YOU DON'T WANT TO FACE AN

ETERNITY WITHOUT HIM.

BECAUSE ETERNITY WITHOUT

CHRIST IS HORRIBLE.

WITH HIM, HE SAID, THE

HAND OF GOD WILL BE SHOWN

TO HIS SERVANTS.

AND HE'LL SHOW HIS HAND TO

YOU.

AND IF YOU WANT HIM RIGHT

NOW, BEFORE WE GO ANOTHER

STEP FURTHER, I WANT YOU

TO BOW YOUR HEAD AND PRAY

WITH ME.

DON'T BE AFRAID.

HE LOVES YOU.

JUST PRAY THESE WORDS.

JESUS -- THAT'S RIGHT,

JESUS, I BELIEVE THAT YOU

CAME TO EARTH, THAT YOU

DIED ON THE CROSS, AND

THAT YOU ROSE AGAIN.

AND I BELIEVE IN YOU,

LORD.

AND THIS MOMENT I CONFESS

THAT YOU ARE MY SAVIOR.

I TAKE YOU, LORD, AS MY

SAVIOR, AND I MAKE YOU THE

LORD OF MY LIFE.

FROM THIS MOMENT ON, I AM

YOURS.

AND THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE

MY MINE.

THANK YOU.

NOW, IF YOU PRAYED WITH

ME, I WANT TO GIVE YOU

SOMETHING.

IT'S A LITTLE BOOKLET, AND

IT'S CALLED "A NEW DAY."

AND IT WILL HELP YOU LIVE

FOR HIM.

AND THERE IS A LITTLE

73-MINUTE C.D., AND I'LL

GIVE IT TO YOU FREE.

JUST CALL IN AND SAY, I

PRAYED WITH PAT AND I GAVE

MY HEART TO THE LORD, AND

I AM A NEW CREATURE IN

CHRIST.

OUR TELEPHONES ARE

AVAILABLE.

IT IS A TOLL-FREE NUMBER:

1-800-700-7000.

NOW, AS I PROMISED, THE

BIBLE SAYS THAT ON THE

NIGHT BEFORE HE WAS

CRUCIFIED, WHEN HE WAS

WITH THE DISCIPLES, HE

TOOK BREAD AND HE BLESSED

IT, AND HE SAID, THIS IS

MY BODY, WHICH IS BROKEN

FOR YOU.

THIS DO AS OS OFT AS YOU EAT

IT, DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE

OF ME.

THIS IS MY BODY, BROKEN

FOR YOU.

I WANT YOU TO SHARE WITH

US RIGHT NOW.

WE DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE

OF HIM.

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS IN

LIKE MANNER, WHEN THEY HAD

SUPPED, HE TOOK THE CUP.

AND HE SAID, THIS CUP IS

THE NEW TESTAMENT IN MY

BLOOD.

NOT AN OLD TESTAMENT

SEALED BY THE BLOOD OF

BULLS AND GOATS, BUT A NEW

TESTAMENT, SEALED BY THE

DEATH OF JESUS CHRIST.

MY NEW COVENANT, DRINK YOU

ALL OF IT.

*

Pat: WELL, THANK YOU

SPECIAL MAUNDY THURSDAY.

AND THIS EASTER IS A TIME

DAY.
