Risk it

Sometimes I wonder if all this Bible talk sounds just plain crazy. And many times I'm sure it does. Usually I can't believe I believe it.

But have you read some of these words?

When Jesus was crucified:
[At that moment] the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many. When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, "Truly this was the Son of God!" 
(Matthew 27:51-54)
As our pastor says, we have be bold and humble enough to doubt our doubt.

Back then they performed crucifixions all the time and the earth never quaked & split in two. And the dead didn't usually rise out of graves to go knocking on doors. Until this time.

I'll have to agree withy the centurion, the executioner, who was there and saw it with his own eyes, "Truly this was the Son of God!"
