The Power of the Resurrection

Synopsis: A young man, Facing torture and possibly death for his Christian beliefs, confesses his fears to Peter, who awaits a similar fate. Peter tells him of fear he felt in following Jesus' arrest in the Garden of Gethesamene, when he denied knowing him three times - and yet Jesus told him that he would be the rock upon which the Church was built. Peter goes on to relate the events of the passion week, including the Christ's crucifixion, resurrection and ascension.

The one called Marcus

I'm the one who really wants take me no

Peter we'll get around to you later

come along

I'm afraid I can't help it I can't help

torture in torture all of us people that

frame a yes I can't face that I can come


if I were brave like you it would be

different but your health feels inside

you there's a pounding like your heart

might burst the pit of your stomach Liz

or not you want to run away but you

can't so if all the others weren't here

you you'd start to cry like a child yes

I know how it feels to be afraid

you are to the bravest man I ever met

you should know the truth it may help

you in the times we have ahead of us I

can't believe that you were ever afraid

loud and boastful I was oh how proud I

was of my faith in the master when we

set out for Jerusalem for the Passover

and when we stopped at Bethany crowds

throng through the streets to see

especially after what they had heard

about Lazarus

but among the crowd with one man who had

come from Jerusalem on a very serious

mission he had been drawn to Bethany by

more than idle curiosity

man is lucky to find anything at all the

weekend better today there's never been

a day like when I heard the news

Jerusalem earlier this morning I just

had to come and see for myself

difficult to believe I grant you but I

was there both time both time day we

placed him in his tone and the day he

walked out tell me the man who did this

this miracle you know him never saw him

before he's from Galilee well his

disciples you know any of them seen them

but I don't know them now Lazarus I do

know him did you see him no but you

should but to see Lazarus is like

touching the hand of the Almighty

now don't misunderstand a man believes

in God all his life but how many of us

are privileged to see such proof a man

who God has reached down and raised from

the dead God has raised people say it's

the Galilean but could anyone do such a

thing except that low mighty did it

through him you'll raise an interesting

question my friend one the first about

his disciples there's one of them now

plain looking man plainly closed they're

all like that pretty undistinguished

looking but yes want us to judge by him

thank you

they told me who you were I didn't

believe it

what did you say you're one of his

disciples yes my name is Judas what

about it it's just strange that's all

disciples of a man who can do such

wonderful things and you go around like

this I should think you'd be able to

simply snap his fingers behold another

miracle foods

why whatever you wish just for the

wishing that should be easy enough for a

man who can raise the dead they will all

see his power soon enough especially the.

Romans so that's now that begins to make

sense you feel the same I do

there will be no freedom in Judea until

the Romans are driven out just good to

meet a friend where are you from

Jerusalem Jerusalem he needs friends in

Jerusalem I would talk with you more we

have little to talk about we already

agree but what about the other disciples

how do they feel the same I don't know

they're a strange impractical lot not

much to build a revolution on but he

doesn't need any of them still it would

help if they were for it which would you

say was the best prospect Simon Peter a

kiss you can appeal to his vanity oh yes

give him the chance he'll talk himself

into it he's your best bet where could I

- find this man here on the marketplace

- I'll point him out.

That tall man he's not alone

that's Lazarus sister Mary it's alright

good I think it would be better my
