Easter 2010 - Behold the Savior

Two years ago, I wrote a story relating to the First Easter, centered on Barabbas. This year, I'm featuring a true story about Sam, who was orphaned as a young child, grew up in poverty, and became a very unpopular Anglican preacher. If you think unpopular preachers have a hard time today, his parishioners maimed his livestock, burned his crops, and finally torched his house. After Sam thought everyone had escaped the fire, he looked back to see his terrified five year old son peering through the glass of an upstairs window.

Read the entire Behold the Savior article, including a Paul Harvey type "Rest of the Story", its place in church history, and a great Easter hymn.
