The Garden Tomb in Jerusalem is the best place in the world to remember the world's most important story. It's also a great place to ask the question … Is the story true? Here's why Pastor Andy Cook says we can know the resurrection of Jesus actually happened!

We can't make trips to Israel to record great video without the help of a lot of people. Here's a combination thank-you video and a highlight reel of some of our work. If you've encouraged us, prayed for us, or given to our ministry, thanks for helping us bring the life-changing images from the land of the Bible to audiences everywhere!

It’s been a bad week for Virginia.
The governor can’t remember if he was ever in a black-face photo or not. He also can’t decide if he should resign now or just wait to be fired in the next election.
The lieutenant governor – who for a few hours looked like a shoe-in to be the new governor – instead found himself to be even more unpopular than the governor thanks to the accusations of forced-sex activity from two women in his past.
The next in line for the governor’s job decided he’d better get his dirty, black-faced laundry out in the open before it appeared he was hiding something, leaving Virginia voters to wonder how it managed to get such a lousy crop of leaders … and how far down the ladder they might have to go before finding a somewhat-decent human being to lead their state.
And that was just last week’s news.
If you’ve read “Finally Finding Christmas,” you already know why this structure is so important to the Christmas story.
Perhaps you’d like to have a framed copy somewhere in your home or office setting to constantly remind you of the original setting of the Christmas story. Click on the photo in order to access a 4MB version of the photo.

It goes without saying that Elijah was a man of the Text. One of the greatest prophets in the Bible, Elijah knew the words of Scripture by heart.
Therefore, when the day arrived when his heart was hurting, he knew exactly where he needed to be.
If you know the famous story of Elijah battling the prophets of Baal on top of Mt. Carmel, you know about the fire falling from heaven, the incredible victory for the prophet, and the race for the desert when Elijah realized he was a wanted man.
Instead of being congratulated for his faith, he was hunted by the faithless. He’d done nothing but good, but evil seemed to be winning. He was depressed, alone and exhausted.
But he wasn’t without direction. Instinctively, Elijah headed straight for the rugged mountains of the southern Sinai Peninsula.
Our end-of-the-year campaign has quickly become one of the most important ways our ministry find the resources to continue reaching the “99 percent” who never get to make a trip to Israel.
Because of the amazing generosity of God’s people, we’re continuing to collect amazing video from Israel, speak to thousands of people each year and develop new resources for the body of Christ. And in 2019? We might even make a mission trip to Zambia! Read more …
Twice a day, every day, a lamb was sacrificed for the sins of the Jewish people at the Temple in Jerusalem. The morning sacrifice took place at 9 a.m. The evening sacrifice took place at 3 p.m.
When either of the sacrifices took place, a great blast from a shofar was trumpeted from the southwest corner of the Temple Mount. We actually have archaeological evidence of where the trumpeter stood. From his vantage point, everyone in the ancient city and those near its ancient walls would have heard the eerie sound of the ram’s horn reminding them that God demands a very high price for sin. It happened every morning. It happened again every afternoon. If nothing else, the rituals at the Temple were punctual.
