A.D. The Bible Continues, Episode 10

God has a sense of humor. Not only did he create wombats, and send Paul to preach to the Gentiles, but He also has keenly orchestrated a situation in my life not so different from what the believers face in Jerusalem.

A.D. The Bible Continues: Episode 9

I’m so delighted with the series' depiction of Paul. I really am.
