Sunday Lee Strobel spoke at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale. I'm a note taker, but this time I did something a little less conventional than scribbling in my notebook: I tweeted the main message points. Yep. Sent them straight to my Twitter account then out into cyber space to forever float around and hopefully land on the computer screen of someone curious about the resurrection.
This was a pleasant surprise. I read Lee's book and was happy that both my kids did, too, when they were in their teens.
Theories abound but history demonstrates that the Romans perfected a slow, torturous, cruel, humiliating execution. It was excruciating. The word 'excruciating' comes from the practice of crucifixion. The Romans were good at this and they liked it. They didn't leave men alive on crosses.
