Arthur Benton Sanford's An Easter Disciple: Special Church Edition
An Eyewitness Account of the Resurrected Jesus Christ
The Chronicle of Quintus the Roman Knight
—with notes by Stephen Skelton
Once, the resurrected Christ appeared to more than five hundred. (1 Co 15:6)
This is the story of one of the five hundred.
Taken from an ancient Latin manuscript, An Easter Disciple: Special Church Edition is the true account of a Roman soldier who encounters Jesus Christ—both before His crucifixion and after His resurrection. With notes by Stephen Skelton providing background on the Chronicle, this 52-page book is the perfect gift to give your members and visitors this Easter!
In 30 AD, the Roman knight Quintus is stationed in Jerusalem. Raised to worship the pagan gods, Quintus has begun to long for something more, both in this Life and the next. Hearing that Jesus will speak at Solomon's Porch, the knight goes--and his Life is forever changed.
A short time later, having been away on an assignment for a few fateful days, Quintus returns only to hear two unbelievable reports: first, that Jesus is dead, and second, that Jesus is alive again. Making his way to Golgotha, Quintus finds an empty tomb--and an apostle named John.
Over the next few weeks, Quintus is welcomed into the fellowship of believers--and shares his profession of faith with the Apostle John. Then, incredibly, John extends an invitation to Quintus: Come see the risen Christ Himself once more before He ascends to His heavenly Life.
An Easter Disciple: Special Church Edition is the epic story of an ordinary man who encounters the extraordinary Jesus Christ--and through Him, the Apostle John, the Apostle Paul and the Gospel writer Luke. Remarkably, the story of Quintus provides an extra-biblical account that lends historical support to the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This Easter, celebrate the resurrection of Christ with An Easter Disciple: Special Church Edition--and rediscover that astounding time in history when the awe-inspiring words were first spoken:
"He is risen!" "He is risen, indeed!"
