Jesus, I will ponder now

On your holy passion

With your Spirit me endow

For such meditation

Grant that I in love and faith

May the image cherish

Of your suff'ring, pain, and death

That I may not perish.

The events at the end of Jesus' life are real history, recorded for us by the Evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. In the Gospels bearing their names, these men described the life of Jesus Christ from his humble birth until his unjust suffering and death, ending with his glorious resurrection. From them we learn how our Lord laid down his life as a sacrifice for all people of all times. His death purchased forgiveness and salvation for everyone. His resurrection assures us of the victory over sin, death and the devil.

This is an interactive journey into that passion history. In these pages you will follow along with the disciples as they witness the suffering and death of Jesus Christ. To do this, you will assume the role of a fictional character who (we will say) lived in Jerusalem during the time of Jesus and worked in the household of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor. You will be able to chose your own paths, examine more closely some of the scenery, and even hold (imaginary) conversations with some of the other people present (both fictional and historical). It is our hope that through witnessing this "virtual passion," your faith in Christ as your Savior may be strengthened.

Effort has been made to refrain from adding too much fiction to history, but a certain amount was necessary to make the story flow. You are strongly encouraged to read the original accounts for yourself.
