The Gospel According To Chester Brown

The Hooded Unitarian has an interesting article on Chester Brown's adaptations of the Gospel of Matthew and the Gospel of Mark. These have never been collected and I haven't read anything more than what Ng Suat Tong has posted here.

Speaking of Matthew, I have also revised the first paragraph of my own Matthew study.

I hope this Easter weekend finds you well and that you can make your way to a church to celebrate the important events these feast days commemorate: the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is the focal point of the gospel message.

This holiday is unique in being the only one that the media celebrates with scepticism and scorn. I know that the Bible says that the resurrection is a stumbling block and foolishness to unbelievers (1 Corinthians 1:23), but I can think of no other religions whose major feast day has to run such a gauntlet. With that in mind here are a couple of positive articles, one from the UK and one from the US. The first counters those who say they like Jesus, but not His Church, the second has some interesting information about Easter.
