They put him
to death by hanging him on a tree. This man God raised on the third day
and granted that he be visible, not to all the people, but to us, the
witnesses chosen by God in advance, who ate and drank with him after he
rose from the dead. (Acts 10:39-41)
blessed Holy Week and a Happy Easter to you and all you serve!
