About The Series

“As we near Easter we will turn to the last few pages of Luke’s first book to the spiritual seeker Theophilus.”

In Luke’s Gospel the writer carefully and comprehensively sets out to document the true story of Jesus and the birth of His church. Much of that work included tracking down and interviewing reliable eyewitnesses to the life and work of Jesus, as he established the facts and corroborated the events in the life and short ministry of this man.

Join us in a fascinating study of the Easter story that is the bedrock of the Christian faith. An ancient story that still echoes with deep significance for us today through eyewitness accounts.


39 Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. 40 On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 41 He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, 42 Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” 43 An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 44 And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.45 When he rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, he found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. 46 Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.” – Luke 22:39-46 (NIV)
