Episode 019: The Cross

SPECIAL Pastor Roundtable discussion on Easter organized by MOUNTAIRE FARMS. Roger Marino of Mountaire Farms helped to organize the discussion and shares a bit about Thanksgiving at Easter.

Guests include Pastor Bruce Rogers of Long Neck UMC in Long Neck, DE – Pastor Art Roxby of Milford Church of the Nazarene in Milford, DE – Jim Dorton of Three Stones Church in Dover, DE – Pastor Rick Betts of Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown, DE.

What historical facts support the claim that Jesus lived, and died on a cross? Do we take the whole claim on Faith alone – or – should we handle the events of the cross with a mixture of historical evidence, and faith? What is so ‘good’ about Good Friday?
