“Two thousand years ago, Jesus walked across Galilee; everywhere he traveled he gained followers.

It was an era of oppression, when every man, woman, and child answered to the brutal rule of Rome. In this world, Jesus lived, and in this volatile political and historical context, Jesus died—and changed the world forever.” – from us.macmillan.com
